Retro pay when no longer employed at UPS?

    Looking for thoughts on this. I will be leaving UPS in early November due to family issues. By that time, I will have worked for 3 months since the contract ended. Will I still receive my back pay owed to me for these months even if I'm not longer there? I would think I should because at the time I was still working under the"new" contact whenever that is approved.

    Don't know, but sounds like a great way for UPS to not pay you.

    Union steward is your best friend here. Find him. Talk to him.

    You'll have to hound them for it. I believe after the last contract there were people complaining about this issue

    PS.
    Keep track of your hours worked so you know how much they will owe you

    That was my thought as well.

    I figured as much, so I will still need to keep up with the contract negotiations after I leave.

    As I stated, family issues. I'm needed elsewhere for the time being.

    Make sure you do them decent, and give at least two weeks notice.

    At my center, we get a lot of guys who end up coming back to UPS.
    If you get life fixed, odds are good they'd take you back. You'll lose your seniority, but family first. I get it.

    Good luck, brother.

    I definitely plan to give them 2 weeks. Though I don't anticipate going back, it's always a nice option and it's the right thing to do.

    Thank you!

    Talk to your BA and tell him your plan so he is in the know, then document all hours from August 1st to when you leave. When and if the contract passes call the local or BA directly to see when you will receive your retro check, that's the best option I got for you in regards to your issue good luck.

    I would think the retro pay would only be for current employees.

    You will not. We had someone quit last time and they said no and he tried to get the union to represent him and they told him to pound sand since he wasn't a paying member. He threatened to get a lawyer but in reality there isn't enough money to make it worthwhile.

    No you won't. The contract or agreement will state that retro will go to current employees only. Also if you owe back taxes, alimony or child support, you won't get anything either.
