"Article 1 Section 5 of the JC 28 Rider states: No PT employee receiving a higher rate of pay shall suffer a reduction of the hourly rate as a result of transferring to FT. They will receive increases as provided in the classification scale of wages, Article 17." -- Article 17 references Article 40, for FT non-Air drivers. Kind of convoluted, but consider this: Employee 1 is making $13 an hour. Starting Seniority pay for them would be $14.50, resulting in a raise. Thus it seems Article 40 Sec 6b would apply, and they'd be paid like Air Drivers. -- Employee 2 is making $15 an hour. Starting seniority pay for them would result in a pay cut to $14.50. -- So does this mean that they would be granted access to Article 40, as outlined in JC 28 Article 1 Section 5, which references JC 28 Article 17, which itself references Article 40? Or is there some kind of red-circle provision I'm missing? I'm prepared to fight this all the way to the Supreme Court.
