Union Update


Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Great news - license reimbursement! You need to contact your district administrator. Take pictures and download all of your licenses and send them to your district for reimbursement for any and all licenses that are “required” in your job title.

Stay safe and well,

Brother GEORGE

Thank you to all of you for standing tall during these trying times.

Union Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 
Good news is retro pay is finally here.  Thank you so much for your patience and understanding with this long overdue process.
 
Please be advised that we are still waiting on the classifications of every Teamster member.  Call Joan Mackie Director of HR operations, office 857-368-8539, cell# 617-699-3307 and speak with her any questions you may have on retro payments and upgrades.
 
We had an E-board meeting A\and thought it would be prudent to cancel the general membership meetings till the first of the year In light of Covid 19.   As soon as the upgrades and classifications are finished, on to the next round: contract negotiations.  Again, thank you very much for your support.
 
In Solidarity,
 
Brother GEORGE

Union Update

Good afternoon,
 
I have been working with HRD and the Comptroller’s Office on the implementation of the Unit B CBA increases and the implementation of the remainder of the Classification Study.

The Unit B CBA increases effective 7/9/17, 7/8/18 and 7/7/19 are scheduled to be processed during the pay period August 16, 2020 to August 29, ,2020 (included in pay advice of September 4, 2020).  In the event there is an issue and it cannot be processed during this pay period I will let you know.

I have submitted the request to process the CBA retroactive payments to the Office of the State Comptroller but have not received a confirmation of the date they will be processed.  Once I have the date I will let you know.

The increase of $700.00 to Step 12 effective 6/30/2020 and the $750.00 bonus for employees who remain red-circled will be processed after the classification/bargaining unit changes effective 2/16/2020 are implemented.

Once both the CBA increase and retroactive payments are processed we will continue with the implementation of the remaining Classification Study changes.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
 
Thanks,
Joan
