NEW BUSINESS

Payroll;

D. Kane raised the issue that there are too many people involved in pay issues resulting in confusion and extra work. Management requires a central point of contact.

Employee to see their supervisor first, if no resolution then the superintendent. The union should contact manager if there has been no resolution.

D. Kane states that Payroll can no longer offer investigation when the depot supervisor is the input person.

When corrections are made by the Friday following payday, the corrections will show on the next pay. Corrections need to be done prior even for off cycle issues.

Management will reinforce with line management. Supervisors will ensure employee is advised of when to expect correction.
