    ohhh ok I believe your health benefits ,eligibility for the 401 k and 1 week vaca after a year of seniority. There, is I believe a 3 or 4 year pay progression to hit full pay ,,if you were hired as a permanent employee, you are lucky !!! stick with it ,many guys waited years for that slot...
    find out who the steward is there and get more info from him !! also your partner must have enough years here to help you out !!

    One thing to note,,,your seniority date does not start the day of hire,it is attained after a period of time, all cases are different,,so show up on time, dress neat, shave work as instructed,don't be disruptive and thing should go smooth for you ,,,,good luck!!

    You make the union after 30 working days. Your insurance information packet takes a couple weeks after that to be mailed.
    Remember. Not 30 days, but 30 days worked.
    I hear you guys are coming in off the street with 4 day bids so 30 days shouldn't take that long.
    Good luck

    No. You need to have 30 working (not calendar)days in a 90 day period. Once you have 30 working days in you will have a permanent feeder seniority date. Can't remember exactly how they calculate it. You will then receive in the mail a packet with your insurance information. Fill it out and you're done. You now have insurance.

    Clarify. Your family has insurance. Not just you. At no cost to you as well. Excellent Blue Cross Blue Shield too! Just do what they ask of you, don't be a ball buster and you'll be fine. It's a great company to work for.

    I thought new hires had to wait a year for health insurance.
