    I'm confused also, I started work as a loader on July 27th 2008 and I didn't get paid the holidays either. I keep getting mixed responses from supervisors and employees. Is there anyone that was hired in July and was paid for Thanksgiving? I keep being told by one supervisor to read my Teamsters book but the only one I have is for the new contract. I should fall under the old contract but unable to get any straight answers. If someone could help me with this I would appreciate it.

    Why should you fall under the old contract ?
    That contract died in Dec 2007, months before you started.
    If you don't want the new contract book send it to me, I still looking for one.

    robbdogg75, talk to a steward about your situation. It is a the only way you will get this resolved fast. The 27th was a Sunday. Maybe double check to make sure that is your actual start date. Hope this helps!

    Old contracts never die, they just fade away...

    Reread the date for no-holiday-pay hires quoted in LVD*4*LIFE's post.

    Were you hired as permanent in July or as seasonal? That could be the difference?

    Seasonals in July? Under what Rider?

    We have them in 243. Then they get laid of Aug 31, and get brought back as permanent on Sept 1. Total BS. That way it takes longer to get seniority. And pay dues with no rights.

    They are actually called "vacation replacements" under the Central Region language and are hired from May 1st to August 31st yearly...Add that with the November & December free hire period and that is a whopping 6 months out of the year for free hires...

    Thanks for all the responses, to clarify my start date it was July 28th and it was permanent hire. I received all my medical/dental benefits 60 days after my start date. Which let me say are the best benefits ever. I was just asking because every time someone quotes from the contract they say "new hires after August 1st 2008" I was hired as a permanent employee before August 1st. I guess I can look for my shop steward and ask him. Just was wondering what you guys thought before I go see the steward. Thanks again everyone

    If they actually hired you as a permanent employee before August 1, 2008 and you didn't sign a "vacation replacement form" then you should be OK and getting holiday pay after you reached seniority.

    I was hired during the last contract, and as far as I remember, the policy of having to have 1 (one) year of seniority before being paid for holidays was in effect then as well. This would mean that he shouldn't be paid for Thanksgiving until next year. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that's how it used to be.
