Yea some buildings only have one 22.3. If it is not meant to be why are there 30 and 35 year pensions for part timers?
@Fitbit App :) aint gonna like this kind of talk. You need to vote yes so he can go enjoy his boosted pension while you work under this terrible contract for the next 5 years and get shafted even harder in 2023.Clearly the IBT has betrayed current part timers. I’ve always been pro union but if they betray us, why stay? Management can’t afford to lose people as they can’t even get enough workers and keep them, so not worried at all about being terminated for no reason. I want to be part of the union and pay my share towards it, but not a union that has not negotiated with current part timers in mind that want/need to stay part time. I hope if there is no catch up raise for current part timers, the union gets totally screwed by that and the anger of giving more to people that have not worked a day for the company over those with many years of service becomes their undoing. We matter too
Very aware of the difference in progression and wages between ft and pt. Cost of living raise is a total joke and is completely useless. A second tier driver still has it made over an 8th tier part timer.
I consider full scale like the driver at 36 and change. As in nobody is higher than that. Completely different for part time. So after 4 years of driving you are at full scale and nobody makes more than you per hour. After 4 years of part time you are $20 dollars an hour less than the person that has been there 33 years. Not sure why you don’t see this huge difference.
I just want a catch up raise equivalent to those that are getting a raise that have been there a week or haven’t even started yet. Not really asking for much. Certainly red circled part timers could be exempt from the raise as they make so much. Otherwise I think you’ll start to see many part timers leave the union and it will finally backfire on the union that they completely betrayed us. Earn our dues IBT, or I’m out and I’m sure others will follow. Happy to pay the dues when you represent us too.
Actually, you will probably make more. Starting rate when I came in was 14.75 and topped at 26 and change. Technically we are all on a progression to the current rate. And that was a two year progression.If you understand, how do you think you will never reach full scale? Once you reach the end of progression you are at full scale. You will never catch up to part timers who have been working there 20 years longer than you. They have gotten 20 more annual increases than you. It's just like a driver who went through a 4 year progression will not make the same amount over the course of their career as a driver who had zero, one, two, or three year progressions.
