UPSers Jerked Around on Retro Pay

UPSers have been jerked around for months since we Voted No at UPS.  Now, we’re getting jerked around with our retro pay too.

The company has had months to prepare for the day when the contract went into effect. That day is here, but a plan to promptly get us our retro pay is not.  

Management says they will pay retroactive pay 6 to 8 weeks from the effective date, April 29. That means June 10 – June 24.  They say raises will be in checks payable on May 16 and May 17. 

Tired of being jerked around by management and Hoffa's Package Division? UPS Teamsters are coming together to enforce our contract and win new leadership and a new direction in our union. Join us!

    How are we supposed to change our W4 when we don’t know when exactly we’re supposed get our backpay? Do we just change it now and wait it out?

    I have to wonder how much interest the company will make from this delay.

    As was stated, the company has had months to prepare for this——-they should have been compiling this information along the way, storing it, adding the hours worked up to ratification and issuing the retro checks within two weeks, not 6-8 weeks. You know that they have been setting the money aside to fund the checks——-it would have been just as easy to compile the data and issue the checks in a more timely manner. The members should be aware that the retro checks may be treated as bonuses for tax purposes and should plan accordingly by going to upsers.com and adjusting their Federal W-4’s ahead of the projected payment date to reduce the tax hit, which could be as high as 35%.

    The raises should be reflected in the 5/9-10 checks, not 5/16-17.
