UPS's contract offer sells part-timers short. Here's how.
No Catch-Up Increases
We were promised catch-up increases to raise the pay of part-timers. Under UPS’s offer, part-timers would get $4.15 in raises over five years. There would be no catch-up increases for part-timers who have been underpaid for years.
No $15 Starting Pay
We were promised part-time starting pay of $15 an hour and extra raises to keep current part-timers above the new starting rate. Under the offer, starting pay would be just $13 an hour, with no extra raises for current part-timers.
Current Part-Timers Will Get a Smaller Increase Than New Hires
If the contract offer goes through, you would either get increased to $13 or you will get a raise of 70¢, whichever is more. Part-timers with less than three years seniority will make the same as new hires.
No New Full-Time 22.3 Jobs
Part-timers were promised 10,000 new full-time jobs that don’t require us to go driving. But under UPS’s offer, part-timers can only go full-time as 22.4 Hybrid Drivers. These jobs pay $6 an hour less than package drivers get to deliver ground.
It's our contract. Let's fight for it—including for fair wage increases for part-timers.
