(I swear I tried searching the forums for an answer before writing this but I couldn't find what I was looking for.) I'm a FT driver in my first year of progression ($17.25/hr) and my seniority date is May 2013. I know that I'll still be in the 3 year progression (made seniority before August), but do I also get the new first-year progression wage of $18.75 (and the subsequent 12 month/$19.50, 24 month/$21)? So I'd get the best of both worlds? And if my wage has gone up to $18.75 I should expect a retro check for the difference ($1.50/hr) dating back to Aug 1st, right? This may to a dumb question to some of you but I'm a new Teamster and this is my first new contract, I'm not sure how this works. Considering I've nearly maxed out my hours every week since making seniority it would be a nice, fat check.
