Under Paid Slave
I was hired July 24th of 2017, right before this new contract. I just reached my first year and was told I would of received at least a 50 cent GWI. I looked on my paychecks and only received 30 cents from 10.20/hr to 10.50/hr. The 30 cents was earned as 15 cents each 6 months. Talked to my union rep and he said yeah, that didn't sound right, but didn't do anything about it because he was firm that this contract was gonna pass and we were gonna get $13/hr. My problem is, what if the contract doesn't pass, and we end up negotiating for another 2-3 months. I'd be losing out on earned income, and even if it is only an extra 20 cents, I'd take it. I was wanting to ask anyone here if that is the correct GWI for last contract for first year seniority, and if I should need to go down to (or call) my local union office. Union office is somewhat of a drive.
