UPS Teamsters have now won over $100,000.00 in penalty pay for 9.5 grievances. As the Company continues to violate the contract our members will continue to enforce their rights. If you are a driver on the 9.5 list and have worked more than 9.5 hours any three days in a week make sure to get with your shop steward to file a 9.5 grievance and get paid.
More info on 9.5 grievances below.
On January 5 and June 5, the union gives management the names of Package Car Drivers who want to be on the 9.5 list for the next five months. Talk to your shop steward before those deadlines to get on the 9.5 list.
The 9.5 lists submitted on January 5 and June 5 take effect on January 15 and June 15. If you want to get on the 9.5 list after the January 5 or June 5 deadline, just fill out the 9.5 Add/Cut Form and have your shop steward turn it into management. You will be added to the 9.5 list for the following week.
Once you are on the 9.5 list, management should not dispatch you to work more than 9.5 hours three times in a work week. If you work more than 9.5 hours on any three days in a week, talk with your shop steward to file a grievance for triple time pay for all hours worked over 9.5 in a day and to have your dispatch adjusted if necessary.
