Pay Disparity

MassDOT has not agreed to bring current members making less than the new hires up to the maximum step grade.  As it stands, MassDOT has the right to bring any new employee in at any step grade on a case-by-case basis, with approval from the Chief Human Resources Officer.  This issue is not able to be arbitrated.  While the Union understands how impactful this is to the affected membership, this unfortunately is the end result of negotiations surrounding current pay disparities.
