Premise Technician Overtime Payment Issue Fixed
02/16/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
During 2017 bargaining improvements were made in the overtime language for Premise Technicians (Appendix C Article 5.03).  Personal Days and Floating Holidays are now included in the calculation of hours counted towards weekly overtime.  The language took effect on June 25, 2017 but the company’s payroll systems were not updated to include this provision. We are happy to announce the issue has been resolved. Premise Technicians who were affected will be receiving a retroactive overtime pay correction on either their February 16th or February 23rd check, depending on their pay cycle.
