Double Check Your UPS Retro Pay Check!

UPS Teamsters are finally getting their nine months of retro pay for our contractual raises. Check to make sure you’re getting what you are due, using TDU's retro pay calculator.

Your retro check covers pay from August 1, 2018 until April 29, 2019.

To calculate your raise, enter your old pay rate, your new pay rate, your number of straight time hours worked in that nine-month period, and your number of overtime hours worked into our retro pay calculator to get your gross retro pay  

You can access your pay stubs on UPSers.com to get your pay rate and hours for each pay period, then add up the hours. Your new pay rate should be on your latest paycheck, after the raise was implemented in early May.

Progression and Multiple Pay Rates 

For Teamsters who are owed the 70¢ general raise, it will be simple.

Some Teamsters have two separate rates of pay; for example, if you work in the building and deliver air.  Do two separate calculations and add them together. 

If you are still in progression, you may have to do two separate calculations and add them together, if your anniversary of hire was in the nine-month period.  Full-timers in the progression may be due thousands of dollars, so verifying your retro check is highly recommended.

Most of the wage rates and increases can be found a few articles of the contract: general wage increase and part-time base wages (Article 22.5); air operations (Article 40.6); package car progression rates (Article 41.2); full-time 22.3 progression rates (Article 41.3)

Five years ago the company overpaid some people (then demanded repayment of overage).  In some cases the company wrongly claimed someone was overpaid.  So it’s worth checking carefully.

If you are shorted in your retro check, talk with your shop steward and file a grievance if necessary.
