The History of Top Rate Progression?

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by thisjobaintforeverybody, May 12, 2017.

  1. How long did top rate progression stay at two years, in past contracts etc, before it changed to three then four! Sorry if this is supposed to be in the Union discussion thread I don't know where :censored2: goes anymore.

    I think it went from 2, to 3, to 4 years in consecutive contracts? Not sure though.
     
  3. I'm just curious to know how long it stayed at two years or less.

    I think there might have been a 2 and 1/2 year progression somewhere along the line and I know it went from 3 to 4 from the previous contract to the one we are currently under.

    In 71 I was making something like $6.35 an hour. My wife had a great paying job with the State of Mn. ---she made $3.35 an hour. Between us we were pulling in almost 10 bucks an hour. That was CRAZY money back then. We save $10,000 that first year and bought an $18,000 home on a nice lake.
