WE’RE WORKING ON IT: Member finds they hadn’t been paid for a year’s worth of double-time

GSU staff rep Mason Van Luven has been assisting a member who recently discovered they hadn’t been paid for a year’s worth of double-time.

“Your collective agreement is a contract that describes the terms and conditions of employment for employees in their workplace, the rights of employees, and the obligations of the employer,” said Van Luven. “It’s important to review and understand it, and to regularly check your payroll records to make sure you are receiving everything you are entitled to.”

Collective agreements are available here, on our web page (use the COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT tab, above). If you would like help interpreting your agreement or if you would like a collective agreement booklet sent to you, don’t hesitate to contact your GSU staff rep.

GSU services are provided to you and paid for by your union dues. There is never an additional charge for assisting you.
