[BR]8 pct paycut does not seem too bad to the ears, but I did some math of total monetary losses from this TA..not counting extra contributions to medical because they will vary from agt to agt, I calculated roughly 6000.00 annually in lost monetary value to the job for an almost topped out agent(19yrs)...(4wks vac,2wks hol)..[BR][BR]1-Salary wise, 8pct of approx 44,000 annual pay is a loss of about 3400.00 annually[BR][BR]2-Sick day reduction of 7 days is approx 1100.00[BR][BR]3-Loss of 2 holidays is approx 325.00.[BR][BR]4-loss of 1/4 vac/hol pay for 6 weeks total is approx 1200.00 .[BR][BR][BR][BR]Total lost is roughly 6000 pp annually.Again not counting excess med. contributions.And retro cuts to July 1 were absorbed into the deal. Am I missing any other monetary losses per agt here?[BR][BR][BR][BR]From this perspective, not too shabby???. But It's the future of hundreds if not thousands of rez and cs ato positions I am concerned about. In rez I see m-a-s-s-ive* layoffs, only to be hired back as 13 an hour techies within 2 years.Atos, we are already seeing some positions re-cla-s-s-ified* into express or MIDATL with lower payscales. So, These are the scraps of which I speak, and not certain if the future does hold any hope for second or 3rd lives, let alone nine.*(geez turn down the censorhip already. Re: a-s-s)[BR][BR]Should I/we vote in the short term.. or long term, or is it catch and catch can either way?
