    If your "grandfathered in" with the $1 skilled pay can you lose it if you switch to an "unskilled" position?

    Uh.... yes.

    Why would you be payed a "skilled" rate, for a "non-skilled" job.

    Even if you return to the previous job, the pay rate (might) not follow you.

    Talk with someone in your Local before making the move.

    I was just confused since the contract says our wages can't be decreased and there is no more skilled positions.

    It really takes some mad skill to read a pal and put the box somewhere near the correct shelf

    Sure, doing it once is easy. Less so when it's 900+ times in 5.5 hrs.
