All TWU Team Members have received an email & training lesson detailing the TWU Payroll changes. Below we have attempted to clarify that information. For a more detailed explanation, please refer to your Corp Comm email or training lesson.
Why are there Payroll changes for TWU?
In a result of the March 26 JCBA ratification, we are now able to move all TWU Team members into the same payroll system as all other Team Members.
What is the difference between Paid Current and Paid-in-Arrears?
Paid Current = Currently it is assumed you will work all your scheduled hours in each pay period. Any additional hours you work in the pay period (Example: OT or CSW) are paid or any hours you did not work (Example: TL or CSO) are recovered on your next pay check. In other words, each paycheck pays additional hours or recovers pay for hours not worked, from the previous pay period.
Paid-in-Arrears = With this new process you will be paid for the actual hours you work in each pay period.
What will my paycheck look like?
July 10th paycheck:
This is your final Pay Current paycheck, with a Saturday through Friday work week.
It will include your base pay hours (40 for PT and 80 for FT) from the June 27-July 10 pay period.
It will also include any additional hours you worked above your scheduled shift or recover any hours you did not work (but were paid) for in the June 13-June 26 pay period.
July 17th paycheck:
This is your transition check.
It will include any additional hours you worked above your scheduled shift or recover any hours you did not work (but were paid) for in the June 27-July 10 pay period.
If you work on July 11 or 12, that time will be paid on this paycheck.
If you choose a supplemental option (see below), it will be paid out on this check.
July 31st paycheck
This paycheck will have all pay schedule changes implemented, using the Monday through Sunday work week.
It will pay for all actual hours you worked from July 13 through July 26.
NOTE: It may seem like your July 17th paycheck is short, but you are being paid for all hours worked.
Is there any way to make up for a shorter paycheck?
Yes! There are 4 options that you may choose by July 2nd. In the coming days, Payroll will send you an email (to your AA email) with a link to DocuSign, where you may elect from the options provided. (This email was originally scheduled to come out on June 1 and has been delayed).
What are the 4 Options to supplement my July 17th paycheck:
You may choose to combine up to 2 of the options listed below, which will be paid in a lump sum. Amounts of supplemented will differ based on part-time and full-time status.
NOTE: Although only up to 40 hours of your paycheck will be impacted, due to current circumstances, they are allowing you to supplement up to 80 hours (so your pay may be higher than normal).
1. One-Time Payroll Advance = You can advance up to 40 hours of pay. You will repay this advance through a payroll deduction beginning next year in 10 or 26 pay periods, starting after 2/1/2021.
2. Use Time from Comp Bank = This is a new program with the JCBA. Therefore, by the July 17th check, you will potentially have up to 16 hours available for this option.
3. Payout Through Accrued Vacation Time
4. The payout from Your Accrued Sick Bank
If you select one of these options, the supplemental pay will appear on the July 17th paycheck.
