If anyone that is a steward or business agent...I need some help shed on the subject for me.....Under Article 59 it states that Newly hired employees hired after August 1,2008 should start at the following wage increases...please clarify about unloaders...... Hourly Rate Pre-loader All others Sorter Start 9.50 8.50 Start +90 days 10.50 9.50 senority +1year 11.00 10.00 senority +2years 11.50 10.50 senority +3years 12.00 11.00 senority +4years 12.87 11.87 my question is are unloaders considered Pre-loader/Sorter rate or are they considered all others. I am a Spa person who was hired in at 8.50 due to being considered under the all others payrate and my Preload HR has hired many Unloaders in at the 9.50 rate..... I am wondering if they are being hired in at the Preloader/ Sorter rate when they are considered unskilled same as me....can I file a grievance under Article 36 as it states the following...... The Employer and the Union agree not to discriminate against any individual with respect to hiring,Compensation,terms or conditions of employment because of such individuals race,color,religion,sex,sexual orientation,national origin,physical disability veteran status or age in violation of any federal or state law,or engage in any other discriminatory acts prohibited by law......I think you get the picture.... I was hired 6/25/2008 as a Spa/Data Capture Clerk and didn't attain my senority until right after 8/1/2008...and my mom's boyfriend is a Union Steward at another hub....but stated that I would be entitled to a dollar in pay if I grieved on these two articles......due to discriminating....basically hiring Unloaders in at Pre-loader/ Sorter Rates as they are considered unskilled same as me and that they have been being paid a buck more a hour for 2 and a half years and have less senority than me but are getting paid more. I unload just as much as they do as in my building everyone in the primary is cross trained to do all the primary jobs......Any input would be great...my BA is on vacation and my shop steward is new!!!!
