    They are supposed to take up to 3 months of pay back. But can be taken back in small increments.

    So those air drivers have been driving longer then you? Are those air drivers getting more then they should per the contract?

    They have been driving less then me by a few years. They went through air driver progression first so they get red circled while going through driver progression which doesn't bother me one bit.

    I gave them notification and they've fixed the error, they know, they just haven't come for the money. It still sits in my savings though.

    I’ve seen it go both ways sometimes they ask for it back sometimes they don’t

    Once it goes past 90 days they can't ask for it back. So just keep it aside in savings and once 90 days are up then you get to enjoy it :)

    Don't tell anyone at work or bring it up again. If they do ask for it back it's only in small increments. I remember a bunch of people got overpaid. one lady paid off her car and paid ups back a no interest loan. Yeah It Was A Huge Overpayment

    Hello guys. Was wondering how far back can you go to fix paychecks that were under payed, and can they be fixed if already cashed?

    Does not matter if they are cashed.
    Couldn't find the corresponding article in national. @542thruNthru ?

    It’s all going to depend what supplement rider you fall under. The language varies greatly between areas. Fortunately or unfortunately beyond that the relationship that you have with your management team can make them work a little harder/faster with payroll to get that money for you. I’d suggest keeping a paper trail of your conversations/correspondence and keeping your steward in the loop. I’ve seen people get checks going back over five years for underpayments here. Usually the process involves having your pay rate fixed first. Once this is done payroll calculates how much back pay you’re owed. We had a bunch of members transition from package to feeders and there were tons of payroll screw ups. Members being in progression has made things even worse as far as calculating how much back pay is owed.

    edit: cashing checks didn’t matter here

    How long ago were you shorted.

    My BA told me that Article 17 has no limit for corrections but passed the time to file a grievance you may not be able to file for penalty.

    About 1 month of checks. I’ve not been receiving the DT rate for 7th day punch. Others say they are still receiving Double for Monday work.

    Well in the Western we have 30 days to file a grievance so I would definitely file ASAP for the double time and penalty

    Notifying the company keeps them from claiming dishonesty on your part(the text) but it doesn't stop them from possibly taking back the money at some point. You should check your State Dept of Labor laws for that answer.
