    Ask your supervisor, and then verify by asking your steward. It's in your contract which you don't have because you were not hired when the last contract was printed, so get one and read it.

    Most likely a year after you passed your probation period, but could vary depending on your particular area.

    You didn't say, but I'm going to assume you are part-time, non-management; and in the USA.

    For most of the country, it will be 1 year after you started (so next June). Some areas get it after working a minimum # of hours in a given time period (something like 250 hours in a 3 month period).

    Best thing for you to do is ask some coworkers who have been there at least a year when they got it. And find out if there is a union shop steward for your shift. Your benefits eligibility is covered in the union contract. There are many regional/local supplements/riders so answers to your questions depend on where you are.
