To all TOP OFF EMPLOYEES receiving a one time payment of $850.00 needing to make any changes to their W2 will need to do so by July 19, 2011. Some will choose to do this in order to prevent an excessive amount of tax deductions.
This is part of the contract re-opener agreement voted on and agreed in the contract ratification process that took place in the Union meeting on April 21, 2011. Those not Top Off Employees will revive 3 floating holidays oppose to the $850.00 pay. All of the floating holidays will be given by normal shift. If you work a 8 hour shift you will receive 3 days of 8 hours floating, if you work a 10 hour shift you will receive 3 days of 10 hours floating. Both the monies and 3 floating holidays will be given to full-time employees starting fiscal year 2012 which is July 1, 2011.
Those receiving the $850.00 will not have the 3 day floating holidays same with those who are receiving the 3 day floating holidays will not be receiving the $850.00
