    Haven't heard anything so far. OD got a pretty good chunk this year and we usually get about what they do. Another 2 cent + raise would be welcome for sure.

    If they match OD I'll be shocked. But one could only hope.

    Yeah. Our insurance went up $2 a week last year. It completely wiped out that $70 a week raise I got.

    In 2014, family coverage was
    65.13 for health option 2
    14.01 for dental
    3.05 for vision
    I paid 2.08 for life insurance
    And 1.73 for AD&D
    Total of $86 a week.

    In 2015, family coverage is
    68.71 for health
    14.57 for dental
    3.05 for vision
    I paid 2.08 for life insurance
    And 1.73 for AD&D
    Total of $90.14 a week.

    An increase of $4.14 per week.

    Linehaul mileage in 2014 was .5665
    Linehaul mileage in 2015 is .59
    Based on 3000 miles per week, that's an increase of $70.50 per week. At 2500 miles per week, it's an increase of $58.75 per week. At 2000 miles, it's $47 per week.

    Tell me again how that insurance hike sent you to the soup line.

    Calm down sparky,I never said it sent me to the soup line. We got fiddy cents with the notice our rates were going up which I understand but don't switch to a crappier health ins and with all the money they stole in not paying time and a half we should have excellent health care

    Our insurance is the exact same plan as last year. City guys got a 90 cent raise.

    Estes has never paid time and a half for P&D guys except for after 55. I suspect you knew this when you started.

    When does Estes announce they will be giving a pay raise? If there is one that is. would it be the same time of year? I think Fedex would do announce in march every year.

    We usually find out if there's going to be one around the first couple of weeks in November. We usually find out the amount during rebid the middle of December.

    Raises go into effect the first full week of January.
