  3. $1.57 after taxes.
  4. My BA says yes without delay, but my gut says no. There needs to be a resolution for 243 whether it's them getting it rammed through or them revoting and then getting it rammed through, but either way there's more to play out in the coming weeks.

    The silence on the subject by all official parties and my BA's certainty that it's now all settled points to it being rammed through. This week, next week, or next month, I can't say. At this point if they're ramming it in regardless and they know they are, I don't see any purpose in playing coy or delaying, just end it now.

    Actually, for many part-timers the retro check will be in the range of thousands of dollars, which is equivalent to several months worth of work.

    Since 243 isn't officially done. I'm guessing they need to have an Exec Board decision. They could do it by phone but I think they have one scheduled in person in May

    I'm at yr6 PT, Owed maybe $400.

    Half our crew is new hires. They're due upwards of $1,800.

    At this point, I don't even care about the retro check. I hope we never get it.

    They'll get an equivalent of about 12 average checks, while I'll get maybe a week and a half's worth of pay. Our buildings kind of slow averaging 13-23hrs a week for most.

    I will have worked twice as many hours as some And am still $1,000 shy of most. Bitterness and lethargic behavior is about to go down.

    Yr 3 to lifers are screwed. Everyone else is getting a solid raise.

    That several thousands for your retro pay depends if there gonna give you just the 70¢ an hour or there gonna give you the 2 or 3 dollars an hour for those that have not yet reached $13.00 an hour
  18. The drivers in progression are gwgetti $2-$4 an hour and they works lots of hours.

  19. I'm in a progression. Was tcd for 3 years, turned FT Aug 2017, got 42¢ raise feb 2018 and haven't gotten anything else since.

    I'm hoping mine is decent.
