    If you don't wash out and make book, six months from then coverage starts.

    Are you sure about waiting 6 months? That don't seem right.

    That is what the email said. I ask Is the position Full Time with benefits? and there respond was "If you gain seniority yes" "It is FT but won’t get benefits until 6 months after gain seniority. All info is given at info session" So when is your Seniority date?

    6 months would be January. He can't make book as a seasonal. Sounds right.

    You will gain seniority in January --- depending on your supplement the date of seniority will be in January, or moved back to the first day you started.

    And if you aren't a seasonal, it's because your supplement requires a longer period to obtain seniority 60-90 days.

    So this means I gain seniority in January and have to wait 6 months after for benefits?

    6 months after you gain seniority is when coverage will start --- according to the email.


    Better yet, wait until the "session" to confirm.

    Ok, thank you! I have my session next week and I will get the information but to tell you the truth If seniority comes in January 2015 benefits effective date will be June 2015, I don't know how you can go with out benefits for a year, crazy.

    I also received bennies after 30 days, this may be something that changed with the new contract (longer waiting period) let me do some checking. I'll get back to you.

    Can't find any change in the contract. Ask somebody.

    He sounds like an off the street hire. I think I read somewhere that they have a break in period. Are you currently an employee or are you starting just now?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Nope 12 months now. That was actually one of
    The few good
    Things this contract. Went back to 12 months for full family coverage.

    Not hire yet, have my session on Friday. I have a job with benefits.

    That is a very long time for someone who has a family to go with out benefits, lets see what information is provided on session.

    How good are the benefits and how do you join the union? How long before you can join?

    That's for part timers not sure about off the street FT. You can always purchase insurance to bridge the gap.

    Obama says everyone can afford it now.
