On Sept 25th the Union requested from the company confirmation of dates when our members could see their job class increase and retro pay. On Tuesday the 29th the company response was such, “retro fro the 24 inch was paid on Sept 11, 2015 pay. Rates of pay for ut/rt will be reflected on the October 9th, 2015 pay and employees will receive retro by Nov 6th,2015. Retro was calculated based on the date of ratification.”

The union disputes that there was any agreement made that retro pay only goes back to date of ratification and as such filed a grievance today (September 30th) that retro should be paid to the start of the contract (August1,2014), not the date of ratification.
