Page 97 of the red book has this letter to “International Union, UAW” from Chrysler LLC written by J. Franciosi.
Quote:
“During the present negotiations, the parties agreed to provide an up-front lump sum payment of $3,000 to each member of the Union on the active roll on the effective date of the agreement. As has been our practice with prior up-front lump sum payments, the payments, is conditioned solely on the membership’s ratification of the Agreement and is paid to such eligible members whether or not the eligible member votes for ratification or performs any services for Chrysler LLC. Such payment shall be made in the second pay period following receipt by the Company of written notification of ratification of this Agreement.

Eligible employees who are represented by the Union are defined as those whose status with the Corporation on the effective date of this Agreement is one of the following:
• Active (including Enhanced Temporary employees)
• In protected status:
• On Temporary layoff status:
• On Pre-Retirement status:
• On leave pursuant to Family and Medical Leave Act:
• On vacation, receiving paid absence allowance, receiving bereavement pay, on jury duty
• On leave of absence beginning not earlier than ninety (90) days prior to the date of the Agreement:

page 97 redbook

On the dashboard anywhere site if you goto your employment history, you will find all your personal work information. If you look beside your status under employee type it will say ACTIVE if your are currently working. This with being a dues paying member of the uaw should be clear enough for tpt's to recieve the signing bonus. I have saw nothing that states otherwise. Unite and tell others

That date of ratification was Oct. 27. Two weeks from then Friday, Nov. 9. TPT's are not eligible for the signing bonus only those enhanced temp's at Belvidere are eligible for the signing bonus.

In the red book on page 97 it also states (excluding part time employees) but it is CROSSED OUT! therefore no longer in contract...all TPT's if you are active on the "effective date" you should be eligible for the bonus also.

I would love to see TPT'S get the bonus. Unfortunately that's not going happen. Eligible employees who are represented by the Union are defined as those whose status with the Corporation on the effective date of this Agreement is one of the following:
• Active (including Enhanced Temporary employees)
• In protected status:
• On Temporary layoff status:
• On Pre-Retirement status:
• On leave pursuant to Family and Medical Leave Act:
• On vacation, receiving paid absence allowance, receiving bereavement pay, on jury duty
• On leave of absence beginning not earlier than ninety (90) days prior to the date of the Agreement:

This means you must have seniority. Active means "active roll". Not laid off or code 31,54,52. Though you can be laid off and still be eligible for the money.

Well according to Chrysler and my information on dashboard I am and active employee. I have been working steady for 8 years an have paid thousands in union dues. I have the redbook and it shows nothing about seniority on page 97, not one word. All tpt's need to stand togather on this, if they didn't want tpt's to have the signing bonus they shouldn't have taken it out of the contract. Get real do you really think they should take 60$ a month out of my check for dues, let me vote, an then say No on the bonus .

Right on Kokomo..I did not read anything about seniority either..I'm am active also and pay union dues..did you see it crossed out also?...that means they just reused that page from old contract and crossed out the part about excluding part-timers..meaning it is taken out of this contract...if it is underlined it is new to this contract.
Thanks jerry...I know everyone is just tryin to be helpful

Are you sure its two weeks form then? It was ratified on saturday but, the union still has to give the company written notice of the ratification. When has or will that be done? The written notice date is the date we need. Anyone know when that was to be done?

That's what we discussed(Nov.9 for the signing bonus) at our e-board meeting. One of our members sat in on the negotiations. Your eligible to vote beacause a few years back a tpt went to the labor board and won the right to vote. Kokomo if you been there eight years you know your not entitled to a signing bonus. Your right it doesn't state seniority. It mearly states the qualifications which pertain seniority employees. Like I stated previously I love to see TPT's get the money.

If it states criteria that has to be met to qualify and a TPT meets those qualifications then they are entitled to the bonus. In a contract you cannot ASSUME anything, you have to take the words as they are written. Just because the qualifications are attributes of a seniority employee that doesn't mean the bonus only applies to seniority employees. A TPT can also meet those qualifications even though they are not a seniority employee. If seniority status was an issue for qualification, it must be listed. It sounds like a case for the labor board. This is a free thing to do, check with your state to file a claim. Let the labor board decide. You have to exhaust your options with the union first, everything should be documented and copies of the documents in question obtained. If they feel you have a case they will represent you, costs nothing.

Once again Jerry, you cannot interpret "Active" to mean "Active role". If the contract states Active and a TPT's status says Active, then they qualify.

I believe Jerry doesn't really want TPT's to get the bonus but is just feeding you a line of crap.

Obviously johnnie lacks the mentality to grasp the basic. Let say this I've been in the union for 24 years. Of those 24 years I've been a steward not only in the UAW but another union also. I'm not assuming anything merely pointing out the facts. Call your regoinal rep. he/she will tell you the same thing. Does the TPT have job bank rights?(answer NO!)Does the TPT earn time towards a vacation?(answer NO!) Does the TPT get paid sick leave?(answer NO!)You get the point Johnnie?
