Bonus Payments Corrected for Part‐Time Members

Under the URAAFT Agreement, members of our unit were to receive a $1000.00 bonus in the February 17 paycheck. This payment was not implemented fully for employees who work a partial work‐week.

The problem was brought to a union representative by Cindy Braun, a Dining Hall Supervisor. The matter has been resolved speedily, and management has corrected the error without a need for any grievance hearing. The corrected bonus payments should have been found in the March 2 paycheck. Nearly $13,000 in additional bonus money was paid out to over 40 members.
