I`m a part-timer at the Melville Hub on Long Island. I have 15 yrs. of service as a sorter and bulk driver. I worked 6 days the week of 12/15-12/20 "Thinking" that I would sit back on Christmas Eve with a nice pay-check. I worked 27 hrs. that week with some O/T. On Tuesday morning (12/23) I went on UPSer`s to check on my pay. The first thing I saw was 4 hrs sick pay ? followed by 16 hrs of reg time. "WTF" The Bastards screwed me out of 10 hrs of reg time and 3/4 of O/T. and gave me a sick day after working 6 days that week !!! I went in early and protested!!! They pulled up my hrs on the computer and they matched my records exactly??? I evoked Article 17 of the Master (they have two days to cut me a check) and of course it didn`t happen. 804 says file a grievance for a penalty! All the penalty is 1/2 days pay per week. Think about this P/T ers. UPS can totally "forget" to pay you for an entire week and only have to pay you 1/2 a days pay (1.75 hrs). And how about you full-timers?? How about not getting a pay check and getting 4 hours (1/2 your daily guarantee) per pay period until you receive it. Can you go one or two weeks without a pay check? WTF was Hoffa thinking when he signed off on the master. I called the Dept. of Labor and they told me that it must be handled first through the union. BULL$h!t Watch out brothers and sisters I think I found out where we are going to get screwed next.
