    We received a memo at our terminal stating that there were errors in recent LH vacation pay. It stated approximately 30 drivers were under paid and 1500 were over paid. It also said the 30 that were under paid will be given the adjusted amount and the ones over paid will NOT have to pay back the mistaken amount. My question is, does anyone know if they are changing the formula as to how we are paid?

    I got my letter. If the formula is "last years gross÷52÷40=hourly rate", then every calculator in my house must be faulty. The previous rate was over by $.40, but the "revised" rate is under by $1.00. Maybe its new math;).

    I'm confused...The line haul vacation rate has always been 1/52 of your yearly rate.

    If you made 70,000 divided by 52= $1,346.15 a week divided by 40 = $33.65 hr x 8hr day = $269.20 a day

    That's how I think it works. I used the gross off last years W-2, my number was $1.00 per hour higher than the letter stated.

    Yes thats correct. They SAY I was one of the 1500 they over paid. who knows.

    I heard the 1/52 doesen't factor in Holiday/personal/vacation pay. Only earned salery.

    That's the way they do it at Freight also, as said vac, personal, holiday and bonuses do not factor in.

    superdave :clap:

    That makes sense to only calculate your vacation earned
    on just earned income like miles and delay pay.
    Otherwise they would be paying twice for other benefits like holiday pay and sick pay and previous vacation pay.

    They calculate all earnings regardless of classification. The discrepancy was caused by us receiving 27 paychecks last year the way payroll worked out. The formula, therefore, is 1/54 X gross ÷ 40 = hourly rate. This info came straight from payroll.
