Hourly Wage Increase
Beginning with the first full pay period in July, all members will receive a contractual increase in base hourly rate. All members will receive an increase of 2.5% of their current base hourly rate. This increase and the two mentioned below were negotiated on behalf of the members by the membership-selected Union Negotiating Committee as part of last June’s contract negotiation and ratified by the membership during the subsequent ratification vote. The first full pay period in July will begin on 7 July 2019, so hourly wage increases should be visible on members’ pay stubs beginning 26 July 2019. For any questions regarding the amount of your personal increase or new base hourly rate please refer to CBA Appendix A (page 29) or contact the Steward in your area.
Health and Wellness Benefit Increase
All members will also see an increase in the Health and Wellness Benefit effective the same date as the previously mentioned hourly wage increase. The addition in Health and Wellness benefit for all members will be an added $.030 per straight time hour any hour worked/contractually paid (PTO, Bereavement, Holiday) not to exceed 40 hours in one week). The Health and Wellness Benefit, which is used for mandatory and elected benefits, to include health insurance, will increase from $6.95 per hour to $7.25 per hour. For any questions regarding the Health and Wellness Benefit or the scheduled increase please refer to CBA Article VI Section 7 (beginning on page 25) or contact the Steward in your area.
