    He's just embarrassed because he misspoke....he'll get over it.

    True, but they try. Every. Single. Day.

    Had a steward try to file on me one time for moving an over 150lbs found in the operation. She filed a supervisor doing bargaining unit work grievance, for work that the contract specifically says I cannot even ASK a bargaining unit employee to do.

    Just think on that for a sec.

    If they decide to keep you you’ll probably have to do another 30 days. There’s a guy in my building they’re letting him do 14 days but they’re pushing him trough.

    Also- days worked prior to free period DO count and start back up after free period. Maybe there is a special....agreement where he spent 40 years.
  6. So... I did my additional days after peak and spoke to the steward yesterday. He said that if my count was correct then I'm good. How will I know when the union recognizes that I have seniority? They still have not taken any $$$ for the initiation fee (I know they didn't forget).

    Just keep working till you hit 30 working days after Jan 10th. At that point I would contract the union about dues/initiation fees.

    He's asking about paying initiation fees. We only pay initiation fees once in my local so I'm also assuming he's a off the street.

    Do you guys have to pay when you're PT and when you go driving?

    He's asking about initiation fees now, but wasn't when I posted that.

    .....but it does appear now that this is an off street hire.
    Nope, one time initiation fee here as well.

    I see that now....and stand corrected.

    Pretty savvy, for an off street new hire, wouldn't you say???

    I agree with your Steward that if your day count is correct you're good, but think that you should be more concerned with whether the Company recognizes you as a seniority employee and is making contributions to H&W and the pension on your behalf.

    The Local will come after the initiation fee and dues as soon as that happens.

    Oh yeah, and congratulations!!!!
