    I'm a new hire for the pm load and am just curious about my situation. I was told recently by my supervisor that unfortunately I was being cut a couple of days next week. I don't mind loosing the days because I have another job where I make real money but I am concerned for my benefits. My question is will this effect my benefits and can they do this?

    What benefits do you have as a new PTer?

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    You have no benefits for a year...and you have no 3.5 hour guarantee until you make book...which you will not do before January at the earliest. Talk to your steward.

    Actually he is guaranteed 3.5 as much as you do. After you make book, file a grievance for your 3.5 for all the days that they sent you home (early) during the past 10 days.

    UPS did not send you home early. You volunteered.

    You volunteered only if you say you want to go home. If a manager at UPS punched me in my face, I didn't volunteer to get socked in the face unless I told him to. Get it?

    UPS will lose at arbitration 9/10 if they can't prove that I volunteered.

    imo- Just enjoy the extra day off for the next month. Your year seniority clock has started so just put up with a real lousy paycheck now and then.

    About the second week of November is when the fun really starts as a loader for UPS.

    Do you get OT after 5 hours?

    No I don't think I get OT after 5hrs, but I am going to enjoy the days off. I'll keep my eye on the prize (driver) and hang tough.

    All PT receive OT after 5 hours of work.
  13. You get OT after 5 hours as a PTer. Your guarantee is also on 3 and a half hours. They can't make you go home until you've hit that. Just ask, I know at my center we can find you work. Make sure you make it clear you want the work. Far too many people at my center would rather work 2 and a half or 3 hours and get the hell out of there.

    In my local....The seasonals hired to work inside instead of being helpers don't...they get OT after 40 hrs. But I believe they have to sign a paper that confirms this when hired.

    Central Region Supplement Art 1 section 1 says "Seasonal and probationary employees will NOT receive any of the benefits of this Agreement other then wages spelled out in this Agreement."

    Which is why I clarified from the "Central Region Supplement".

    No... it says they WILL work under the provisions...



    Section 1

    (a) Probationary employees: a new employee shall work under the

    provisions of this Agreement but shall be employed only on a thirty

    (30) working day trial basis, during which period he/she may be

    discharged without further recourse; provided however, that the

    Employer may not discharge or discipline for the purpose of evading

    this Agreement or discriminating against union members. After

    working thirty (30) days within a ninety (90) consecutive day period,

    the employee shall be placed on the regular seniority list, and

    his/her seniority date shall revert back to the first (1st) day of the

    thirty (30) day period in which the employee gained seniority.

    You are right that is what it says at the beginning of the Art. Go to the second to last paragraph and read what I copied. How can it say one thing in the beginning and something the opposite in the same paragraph?
