Thanks to everyone - members and not-yet members - who called or wrote to point out the errors in PTL paychecks this week! This quick feedback is critical for our efforts as a union to make sure that no one's salary increase falls through the cracks. Many PTLs did not receive their retroactive pay. Some have been charged an incorrect, and often exorbitant, amount for union dues.
We have contacted the administration and corrections are underway. We will update everyone as soon as we receive additional information.
Thanks to all our full members for being members and, not-yet members, please join the union so we can be even stronger!
