I honestly don’t understand where all the confusion is regarding this payment.

Did anyone read this? http://www.cupw.ca/en/pay-arrears
I got that, but expected to be paid for 80 hrs as normal, not fricking 70.

My pay seems to be the same as usual, but you’re right, if it’s significantly less, that seems off.

I just don’t understand everyone’s thinking they were going to get paid extra, not at all etc.

If I remember correctly, didn’t we get paid double on the cheque we became indeterminate?

Any idea why my pay went up to 20.40? Does that happen when you finish probation?

Is your net pay comparable? Mine seems to be and it looks like they made up the difference by removing a bunch of deductions notably almost all of my pension contributions.

It’s stranger accounting, but it adds up (for me at least).

Yes, Mr. corporate kiss a$$ ;) , it's pretty similar. Wonder why they took off 10 hours though.

We all have to keep this pay statement secure, as they may try and screw us at the end.

For sure we'll have to pay it back, but they may try and and get back 80hrs. We'll see when the next folk retire.

For each of those holidays days you're entitled to 1/20th of the last 20 working days before them, not including overtime etc. So if you've been working 8hrs a day for the preceding 4 weeks, you're entitled to 8hrs pay.

Look back at your hours and see.

I worked 21 working days 8 hours a day from start of my backfill until Dec 24 (not including overtime)

You are working as a relief carrier. Reliefs (FT or terms covering relief assignments) get paid a buck extra over LCs on long term assignments.
