Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

Really Confused about Contract

Discussion in 'UPS Union Issues' started by ups_wife, Nov 1, 2018.

    Hi all, My husband has been a FT Driver with UPS for for 7 years. We are in WI - local 344. He's a steward and so he talks a lot about the union contract (which he voted no on). I have been trying to understand the contract situation as he explains it and can not. Following the Oct. vote and ratification, he told me that we should be receiving a check for his raise back to August 1st. That hasn't happened? I'm sitting down to plan for Christmas and he doesn't know what's going on with it and everything he says is a big jumble to my ears... Could someone please put it into to simple terms for me. Will there be back pay for a raise? When will that happen? Is it really a thing?

    There is back pay, but only once all supplemental agreements are ratified.
    As to when that happens is anyone's guess. 5 supplemental agreements need to be voted on again. I wouldn't count on it before the new year.

    And if that is your real picture, may I suggest changing it to something generic.

    No vote = no check. Should have voted yes

    Thanks for the reply. I didn't realize that all of the supplements had to be ratified first.

    No offense but your husband must not be a very good steward if he can't explain to you when and why he will get his retro check.

    Please tell him to study up and go to some union meetings.
