He said he is paying dues
He may be paying initiation fees and thinks they are dues.
It's possible but they should be taking them out until you are in the union.
Ours were taken out the first 4 weeks. $25 a week.
What should I do? Should I take the warehouse job and try requalifying? I'd certainly have to find another job. I really wanted this, but it seems like its not in the cards for me. The way they DQ'd me, I dont see them giving me an oppurtunity to drive.
True but even you would have to admit that "not taking the job seriously" is a new one.
I would take warehouse job and grieve it if you are indeed in the union worst case scenario you can bid on something later
Until he gains seniority, he has no rights other than the contractual rate of pay.
2001 "init fee"
File based on what? As was said above, they can DQ you for just about anything, although "not taking the job seriously" is one I hadn't heard before.
My point exactly someone didn't want him to qualify as an outside hire they must have someone inside that they know is what it sounds like to me
If you take the PT job you will no longer be able to be hired as a off the street hire. You'll have to wait till you're seniority affords you the right to qualify again. You may want to ask around and see what the wait time is to be a RPCD in that building. Because in some areas it can be anywhere from 6months to 11years.
You say that like I never admit to things lol.
Yes it's a new one but he may have been given better reasons but that was the one the OP latched on to.
Maybe somebody from local 25 can answer
Seems to be sop for them
If they are paying fees but not dues, they are at-will employees, correct?
fixed it for you
Can't have 22.4s if they hired off the street to be a RPCD.
I'm pretty sure all off the street drivers will be 22.4 from now on
I agree. What I meant was the new contract says if the building has 22.4s they can not hire off the street RPCDs.
So if he was hired off the street as a RPCD then that must mean his building doesn't have T-S yet.
Separate names with a comma.
