    Hi all,

    I have been a part time air driver for 4 years now and recently became a full time package car driver.My wage for air driving is $24.74 hrly.What should my wage be when I start package car?I looked at the contract and it says that I should be "red circled" until my wage progression catches up.To me this means that I should not have to go through a full progression all over again.In fact,my wage should remain at $24.74 until 3 years and then become top scale.Does anybody have insight into how they work this or know anyone that was in a similar situation?

    You are right----you should be red circled at $24.74 for the full 3 years until you reach top scale.

    Was the Part-Time Air driver your primary Job? Or did you do something else such as pre-load? If your primary job was something other than a PT Air Driver, I'm not sure, but I believe it is that rate which will be "red circled".

    We had an ODC girl that drove on Saturday go full time driving and thought she should get air driving rate. After a couple months payroll said no and wanted all the overpay back.

    You will start package car at the lowest progression rate. 16.10 is it? If not, I suggest you speak up, because they will likely take whatever overpaid monies back.

    As an article 40 part-time air driver, employee completed a part-time progression (2 year, art 40) To become a FT package car driver, you enter a new FT progression outside of the Article 40 (41).

    Article 40 is 1 big concision from the 1980s.

    I was red-circled at my air rate when I went through full time progression. Air driving was my primary job (I bid and won the position). Was the best part time job I ever had.
