After yesterday’s AFA clarification communication stating the error on the retroactive date for “Block or Better” in the Summary documents, the JNC reached out to management to enquire if they would consider actually making “Block or Better” retroactive to January 1, 2018–the same as it is for TFP and Block Hour pay raises.
Management has agreed to make L-VX “Block or Better” retroactive to January 1, 2018.
The JNC takes full responsibility for the human error that occurred in listing the incorrect date for the “Block or Better” retro pay in the summary document. We also recognize that this was an additional “ask” and management was under no obligation to honor our request. We are thankful for their decision, and that this issue has been resolved.
