Hi, I work with a guy who claims to have gotten a 87 cent raise on his senority date this year. His senority date was like August 3rd, 2002. So he just missed the Article 22 Section 5 (a) raise that I recieve on August 1st. He should be under Article 22 Section 5 (b) which would schedule him for a 50 cent raise. Article 22 Section 5 (c) The wage rates and increases provided in (a) and (b) shall be a minimum. He is saying he got a 37 cent COLA. Everything I read said we were getting a 12 cent COLA. Did they invoke part (c) and give the people more then they had planned? Did they screw up his COLA? Or is he full of **** and he just got a 50 cent or 62 cent raise? According to the contract he should be at Senority plus (4) years $12.25... Plus COLA +.12 = 12.37? He is saying 12.52 I guess. Anyone who is getting the chapter (b) progression Id appreaciate hearing from you. If he's serious I'm kind of annoyed the company is rewarding the less senior employees with more then they are guaranteed while people with more experience are getting just the guarantee. I appreciate whatever raise we get but if he really got an extra quarter this year I guess yah Im jealous/upset. We all do the same job, why would they be rewarded differently.
