Couple of random pay questions. How does OT work? There's a two week delay, right.. so it shows up in your next check?

Also, my pay went up from 19.86 to 20.40 in my latest check. Why's that?

Just received my latest pat statement. I'm a Temp PO4 started in late October, I have been getting my pay cheque deducted every month for $79.35 and for some(?) reason, my latest pay cheque got deducted $86.35 for union due and another $7.00 for "CUPW Dues Arrears"?

What the actual ****? If I only get call/accept one assignment, I am basically working for the union for free?

What is that $7.00 for? I had already paid them 5 bucks for the union card that serves no purpose if not for stopping the union dude chasing after me every day.

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

Did anyone read this? http://www.cupw.ca/en/pay-arrears
Yes. I received a physical letter in the mail about it too.
No big deal, however I would have preferred it to be an optional payment. I could have gotten by without it.

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.
