MassDOT Units B and C 2020-2023 CBAs Retro Pay and Pay Increase Implementation Schedule

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 
I'm writing to provide MassDOT's implementation schedule for the Units B and C 2020-2023 CBAs with respect to retro pay and raises.

    Beginning the pay period starting May 8, 2022, employees' salaries shall be adjusted to reflect the new pay scale that became effective July 2021. This will be reflected in the May 27, 2022 pay advice.

    Beginning the pay period starting May 22, 2022,  Units B & C retroactive payments* for the period from December 6, 2020 to May 7, 2022 will be processed.  This will be reflected in the June 10, 2022 pay advice.

        *Currently, there are 147 employees who changed bargaining units between Units B and C during the contract term, primarily as a result of the classification study. Because of changes in bargaining units, the retroactive payments covering December 6 2020 to May 7, 2022 for these 147 employees must be calculated manually.  HR is trying to get those payments included in the June 10, 2022 pay advice. I will update you when we learn the date this payment shall be paid to these 147 employees.

    All Unit B and C employee retroactive payments for the period of July 5, 2020 through December 5, 2020 must be calculated manually, as a result of the classification study implementation.  HR is trying to get those payments included in the June 10, 2022 pay advice. I will update you when we learn the date for this payment.

    Beginning the pay period starting June 5, 2022, the 1.5% bonus pay (minimum $1,000) will be processed for Unit B & C employees.  This will be reflected In the June 24, 2022 pay advice.

    Beginning the pay period starting July 3, 2022, the 2022 pay increase will be processed for Units B & C employees.  This will be reflected in the July 22, 2022 pay advice.

MassDOT and HRD have not determined the date the Hazard Pay payment shall be made. However, we anticipate it will be after the completion of the schedule noted above. I will update you when I have a specific date.

Salary Increases

Attention Brothers And Sisters,
 
All contractual pay increases will be implemented starting the week of 5/8/22 and will be in the 5/27/22 paychecks. The DOT still hasn’t given a timeframe on the retro and COVID payments we are owed.

Union Update

On April, 4.2022, Governor Baker signed bill H.4578 into law. In that bill is the supplemental budget for our cost-of-living raises that are owed to us upon completion of our last contract between MassDOT and the unions. We appreciate your patience during this process and just know the money is coming now sooner than later. Also, under the new contract all licenses and continuing education that are required for you job are reimbursable, including your DOT physical.
 
In Solidarity,
Brother George

Contract Update

 
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 
As you know, the contract was ratified and signed Jan,14.2022 with retroactive pay and the clock is still ticking.  I stated to all you members that your monies would be here by March at the latest, including $2000 Covid pay .
 
Teamsters fought long and hard and were lied to by Head Negotiator Olinda Marshall and the rest of the DOT team. She stated, and I quote, our contract and the Covid 19 pay did not need legislation approval.  Well, it most 
certainly did.  We are doing our best to help facilitate payments to all members.  Thank you for your patience .
 
In solidarity,
 
Brother George

Union Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 
The contract was signed by all unions at the end of January, then is goes through processing.  All members should be receiving their raises and retroactivity payments in 60 days.
 
To all members,
 
Teamsters are well aware of the pay disparity of new hires and truly understand the frustration. I take full responsibility and vow to get to the bottom of this problem.
 
Our contract states that all new hires start at Bottom Step and grade in their respective job title in black and white. DOT did this without Union knowledge.
 
Teamsters have our attorneys on this issue. Now that our contract is settled, we can focus on this morale buster and make all members whole.
 
My apologies to all of you for the lack of updates on the web site. I battled Covid 19 for a little time.
 
In solidarity,
 
Brother George
