Ask The Union A Question
How do I find out what my union member id number is?
I have a question about 10.2 & 10.3 in the contract. If I get called in under 10.3, does that reduce the hours I receive for 10.2? Thanks.
Why is the new Union contract not posted to the website. This contains valuable information on the VRIP and is needed for members to make decisions.
VRIP - the "Retirement Team" is not providing answers to questions regarding the HRA option of VRIP. Example: Does the account roll over each year until spent. How do I access the funds? Basic items they need to explain. At what point is the union willing to grieve this?
Response to previous question - the VRIP was part of the union contract so there should be some involvement by AFSCME. ONA declined to participate while AFSCME agreed, thus it does have union involvement and the Union should make sure its members have all needed information..

I got my salary change notice from my manager for the conversion to the upcoming pay ranges. The form indicated that it includes my pay scale change plus the 2.5% AtB increase effective July 1. There is no mention of the lump sum payment referenced in 8.1.1. Is that being paid separately?
Pharmacy Shift Differential for new Pharmacists - So Pharmacy is hiring new Pharmacists as Salary employees so everything in Appendix A of the contract doesn't apply to them. But, there is an Appendix I which states the differential rate for Pharmacy Techs and Pharmacists. Since Appendix I is not listed in Appendix A as not applying to salary employees. Shouldn't the new Pharmacists be receiving the differential rate that is listed in Appendix I?

Follow-Up: Further, 3 of the FTE/classified employees didn't want to leave but were told it was "required." Shouldn't the FLEX, followed by FTE/classified VOLUNTARY release employees gone before EVERYONE required to leave? This was handled poorly, with subsequent bad feelings.
