Since Andy came on board prior to the 1997 Contract we have seen dramatic increases in our Pension contributions, $6.55/hr over 17 years, $.385/yr on average vs $.20 the previous two contracts. Also we have seen the previously unreachable 2080 hours become so under "all compensible" won in 2002. Other Locals in the WCT have similiar and in some cases better increases per their supplements. We can all afford to take a brief "time out" and start our new Healthcare plan. Notes to the graph: Prior to 2002, 173 hours/month guarantee hours only. Post 2002 all compensible up to 2080. Peer contributions were broken out in 2002 but are kept as total contribution for the sake of continuity. 2013 contribution is based on the current WCT agreement yet to be voted on. Total increases to contributions by Contract: 1990-1992: $.66 1993-1996: $.80 1997-2001: $1.05 2002-2007: $2.25 2008-2012: $3.00 2013- tbd Vote Yes!
