I was told that all drivers currently under progression would be getting a raise to the rates in August when the new contract goes into effect. Supposedly, you will get the amount stated based upon when your seniority date was.
12 Months $16.80
24 Months $18.90
30 Months Top Rate
12 Months $18.45
24 Months $20.75
36 Months Top Rate
For example, from what I was told, If you are a new driver (seniority) and are making $15.75 now, August 1st you will get a raise to $17.25 (unless of course you would be at the Seniority plus 12 months, then it would be that rate) And you would continue to follow the new contract wage progression. However, you would still top out in 30 months as opposed to 36 as defined in the new contract.
Don't know if it's true or not. It's just what I was told when hired.
