I found a similar thread on this but the answers were not clear on this scenario that I have. The last few weeks I have been holed up in a long trailer loading because I've been getting alot of free money because of supervisors working. I used to be at 3 trailers where I would be going in and out and could see across to the other belts. Now though when i see supervisors working, it might be for a minute or 2 but thats all i see because I cant stand and watch them to see how long theyre working so i just say pay me 1-2 mins or I have my union steward figure out whats going on. On Monday, I saw a supe loading at the belt across from my area and I told my steward and he came back and said he worked for an hour but he was gonna pay the 4 part timers on his belt 15mins each. But these hourlies don't care and let the supervisor work. There is a lot of these kinds of people in our building. Anyways can they just do that. They can't just decide were gonna pay these people. Or should i just file? My union steward says they can but i looked through the contract and theres nothing about this instance. Then tonight at the end of the sort, a supervisor was clearing a jackpot for a 1min and I was walking out I came up to her and asked her to be paid for it and she gave me a snobby answer but I got paid. She lied to me before about working so thats why Im going after the minute on principal because these supes lack ethics. Anyways heres what bothered me more; the supervisor from the other belt on monday heard this conversation and said just give it to someone on her belt and not me. She ended up paying me. But can they do this? This makes for some collusion I would think between union hourlies who dont care about supervisors working. I have more seniority then all the part timers on all the belts i see supervisors work but then the rest are combo guys who get their 8 hours so they cant pay them because then it would be overtime. Any thoughts or suggestions. Im going to print/email these to my union steward because I really do think this is bull and they just dont want to pay me anymore because out of spite.
