    You are still in progression, you get $.50 a year and on the 4th year you get $.75. In 2008 you will receive $.70 in raises in addition to the $.50 you get on your seniority date, the $.70 will be divided up between August 1 and February 1 of the following year, it may be put into the pension depending on how your pension is doing.

    Because you are still in progression you will not recieve the general wage increase untill Aug 2012. You said you were hired in Oct 2007 therefore you will be in progression till Oct 2011, you will get .50 on your hire date.
    After you reach the top of progression (4 years, aprox $12.75) then the following Aug you will start receiving the general wage increase on Aug 1 and Feb 1
