    Hello,

    Question: I am a newer Steward and I have a seasonal employee who was hired November 15th. He has stated that he came in to help work for other shifts in the hub, after standing around for a couple of hours, he was sent home. He stated this happend a couple of times and was never paid for the time. He cannot file a grievance since he technically isnt part of the union correct?

    Seasonal employees have no contractual rights.... other than the rate of pay.

    If he want's to file a grievance, let him.


    Congratulations, on becoming a Steward.

    You should never tell someone they can't file or don't have a grievance. It opens your local up to lawsuits. File the grievance and let your BA handle it or give him your locals # to speak with your BA.

    Was he told to come in or did he come in all on his own?

    In some supplements I've see rights for seasonal helpers that were more then just pay rates. I know Nor Cal has some language and I believe westernPA also.

    If he was told to come in he should at least get his guarantee.

    What guarantee. Some areas don't have one for seasonals.

    How would you feel if you were told to come in to work, stood around for a few hours and were then told to go home? You'd be pissed to.

    It shouldn't matter what your status is-----if you are scheduled to work and show up it should not be your fault if you are not put to work.

    Uh......for showing up ready to work......4 hours.

    What if he had arranged daycare for his kids or spent money on an Uber?

    Sorry it was Central PA. They have a 3 hour guarantee
     
  16. But they usually keep them around for a couple of hours, even if they don't have work for them to do.
