The retroactive pay due under the terms of the 2019 -2022 National Agreement will be included in the October 30, 2020 paychecks. There are multiple variables that determine how much any one employee will receive.
The retroactive general wage increase period was November 23, 2019 through April 24, 2020. The retroactive period for the March COLA increase was February 29, 2020 through April 24, 2020.
Retirees received retroactive pay for the hours that they were actively employed and worked from November 23, 2019 until their retirement date if their date was prior to April 24, 2020. This check was sent to their last office of record.
The amount an employee received was based on the following:
- Actual hours worked
- Step and level of pay during the retroactive pay period. For example a Level 5, Step P employee will not receive the same pay as a Level 4, Step A employee.
- Overtime hours worked
- Any shift differential worked, such as Sunday Premium, Night Differential, etc.
- Leave Hours paid
- LWOP Hours used
