new employees
New employees hired after April 2014 are stuck at 5 years 90% according to their contract negotiated by union Presidnent John Samuelsen

With MTA workers already behind in wages and struggling to keep up with the cost of living compared to other city agencies, waiting for 5 years top pay will be a struggle. Now  imagine not knowing you will reach top pay and the contract states exactly that.

TALK ABOUT SELLING NEW MEMBERS OUT

New hires that are apart of the false 5 year wage progression to top pay, it’s time for you all to start paying attention.

There is nothing in the contract that states when you will reach top pay. It’s stops at 5 years 90%. If the MTA decides to exercise what’s in the contract agreement, you will be stuck at 5 years 90% for a very long time. At the end of the day in arbitration the parties are bonded by the direct language in the contract.

WHAT DOES THE CONTRACT ACTUALLY STATE

Below is the actual contract language from the ratification of the 2014 contract. As you can see, there is no language in the contract that states when new employees will reach top pay.

THE SUPERVISORS CONTRACT SAYS 100%

Below is a copy of the supervisors contract that states upon completion of their 5th year they will reach 100% top pay.

The only person you can thank for this screw up is TWU local 100 President John Samuelsen and crew.

  1. From what I was told in a social site apparently you, (the writer)has had disagreements with the TWU local 100 over not winning the election in past years, hence all the venom spewing towards the head of the Union apparently. But lately after certain members of TWU jumped on me for apparently being irresponsible by sharing one of your articles which I thought were insightful. I see a lot of the members sharing them. I just want to ask is this true what local 100 union officials are talking about you?

    • Dear Eddy…. The writer (me) has never ran in any election and don’t plan on doing so. Officers of TWU are upset that they are now getting exposed on a stage where people are actually listening and waking up. All
      of our posts are backed by facts (paperwork) or common sense.

  2. So just over 2 years on the job they are worried about the raises 3 years down the road this contract expires JANUARY 15 2017 so if there is a problem with the wording of the contract it should be corrected in the next contract if it already is not covered in any prior contract

  3. lots of worries, and once they become union rep themselves, and the concern goes out the window. TIME TO STAT RACKING UP SOME SERIOUS MONEY, E.G., JOSE CASTELLON, TRACY YOUNG, RICHARD DAVIS, DONALD YATES, LIZ WILSON, WHO AT THE END OF THE DAY, THEY ARE NO WHERE TO BE FOUND, WORKING SOMEWHERE IN A CUBICLE AT THE UNION BUILDING, GETTING PAY AS USUAL!!

  4. I have yet to hear or see anyone from the union clear this up either on FB or this site. If they truly felt they had to clear the air with these postings coming up, then someone would’ve done so already. The only way to know for sure is to see the actual contract itself. Is there anyway we can obtain a copy?
