    We have a loader who became a sorter. At the end of the night after sorting they send him to help load trailers. Does he get paid skilled rate to help the loaders?

    Working 60 minutes in the skilled position, qualifies for the skilled pay rate for the entire shift.

    Wow so if they are instructed to unload trailers the entire night it's not skilled rate?

    Correct only if it was put into the payroll system that way, most have it as their permanent pay rate, but yes typically speaking to have the $1 per hour raise for doing a skilled position, they are required to sort for a specific amount of time to have it for the whole shift (1 hour I believe). Typically the only ones that are supposed to be sorters are those of seniority, but others got it through doing it here and there. So most of the time a sorter who is asked to load doesn't happen often due to seniority restraints, but in theory yes they aren't supposed to have the $1 if they are just loading.

    One we become skilled we get skilled pay now matter what we are instructed to do. The only way we lose it is by bidding on an unskilled job.

    some ppl in my hub have it permanent even if they arent doing a skilled job, while most new hires only get it on days they
    do a skilled job. if person has 5 years of seniority(non-skilled) and does a skilled job he only gets the $1 for the days he did skilled job.
