Lump sum still not settled I hear
Don't you think that should have been settled before any announcement?
Did you see a formula? Mechanics had one.
No it's 100 degrees up here my brain is fried
Hey Conehead I don't see a Avionics scale you can't possibly be on the AMT scale
if you were dumb enough to have ordered those button down uniform shirt like I it's more like 120
No I got the NAVY BLUE T shirts
I think that lump sum is the amount of an increase they would be getting yearly on that chart? The numbers are very high for just an interim check making up the difference in pay.
Weez make some phone calls or we will have to wait for Tim's interpretation which is usually spot on
Filter or NYer should be by soon...maybe CB or P Rez
I'm waiting for Josh
I was just informed by a "rad cool dude" that the Q and A's should hopefully be out tomorrow.
Gotcha...it seemed directed at my post.. The "realistic" part of my post was mainly in reference to UPS and FedEx mechanics. They have surpassed us in pay by leaps and bounds because, as I believe, there are less of them. I know we all do the same work on the same flying machines, but their numbers are a fraction of what ours are. As I said, I believe UPS has part time mechanics and they outsource alot of work. I just don't believe we will ever catch up to them because of these factors.
The formula in their agreement is not to cover the same issue for Fleet. In reading their agreement, for example the MCT, they go from 5 steps to about 9 steps. The first 4 steps seem to be lower then the current step and the lump sum they seem to be getting is to make up for that difference.
OLD : 1st Step 31.36 NEW RATES: 1st 25.03
2nd Step 31.87 2nd 29.16
3rd Step 32.34 3rd 31.02
4th Step 32.99 4th 31.50
5th Step 37.67 5th 32.70
6. "If the employee's current hourly rate exceeds the Top of Scale (TOS) rate outlined in Attachment A, he/she will be "red circled".
7. "For employees covered by Paragraph 6 above, they will receive a one-time lump sum payment equivalent to 23% of the employee's annual base earnings based on a 2080 hour work schedule."
Again, that is what it looks like to, not an official explanation.
Got it. Thank you.
