    Hello Gearjammers. The Houston barn has posted P&D openings, and I wondered per the contract, what is the starting pay? If each barn differs, that is fine, but what is the range at date of hire? To top out, what is the time frame as well? Thank y'all.

    Twelve (12) months $18.70
    Twenty-four (24) months $20.00
    Thirty-six (36) months $24.00
    Forty-eight (48) months Top Rate

    Top pay is 28.40 as of today. We will top out at 28.65 in July at the end of this contract.

    Medical per month

    Single .....................................................................................$45.00
    E/ee Plus.................................................................................$90.00
    E/ee & Family ......................................................................$135.00

    retirement is $105.00/per month per year.

    $105.00x12=$1260.00 per year times years of service.

    Thank you!
    Retirement is a UPS pension or 401-k?
    I’m calculating about $.65/hr based on a 40 hr week?

    It’s a single employer pension. We also have a separate 401k with no match from the company.

    Yeah unfortunately that that. We are starting negotiations on our new contract and pretty sure it will change if they want drivers. They had to make an exception in several terminals to get people just to apply and start them at $23.00/hr.

    Maybe pay progression will be addressed in negotiations. Pay progression is a thing of the past...

    I would have been at UPS long ago if it weren’t for that ridiculous progression.
    The company knows how easy it is to give people what they want as long as they sell out the next generation...their children and grand children. It’s dog eat dog these days

    UPSF has changed the starting pay/progression as they finally realized they couldn't get anyone in the door. look for real changes regarding this in the new contract.
