Hearing rumors, but don't like the idea of loosing half my pay $28-14. I feel that those who have been part time a long time at Chrysler, are good workers, and now many jobs should get paid more than someone off the street. I paid thousands in union dues during my time at Chrysler, I hope the UAW will have TPT back and sat we deserve more than the entry level $14.

If you are making 28 you must be a TPT, working only M & F & occasionally on a sat or sun for ot. As opposed to an "SVR", whos pay is already id'd @$15.(?)
Prior to the April 2009 modifications you would have progressed to "full" rate- but the language now states ALL NEW HIRES start at the "entry level" rate, both core & non-core. Additionally, April 09 Mods state if hired after you remain @ tier 2 until the 2011 contract expires. As far as seniority, it is day one... So if tomorrow they say "welcome aboard you are a seniority employee" , you would have an April 21st, 2010 seniority date & receive entry level wages. Even if you were in a chry co building 5 yrs ago. See letter 185, which explains TPT languge incl. Seniority, letter N-5, & "Entry Level Employee Agreement & Benefits". As far as Warren truck hiring, I wouldn't be surprised- KEP already did, and last I heard they are still closing in Oct- you aren't

TPT's will be rolled over to Full time, you will start at around 11 or 12/hr and you will max out at $14 and yes, you will start with day one senority since you don't have any, they are doing this to all TPT's all over, they kicked out our TPT's at Mack last year and made them all FULL TIME at $11/hr starting pay/max $14, i forgot what plant they sent them? I think the old Trenton Plant

you DO NOT start @$11 an hour- you start around $14- look at N-5... I agree w/ take the job, hang in there and negotiatians will help you guys. Deserve more but have to wait- at least you have a chance @higher wages in a union

I'm taking full time. $16.20 to start, also 90 day probation period is waived, plus benefits. Also if Chrysler is doing good maybe we will get raises in the future.

when we become the majority hopefully they ask us to vote an equal pay for everyone. Even if it means oldtimers coming down to $18 an hour. That will raise me up 4 dollars more

I think over 100 tpt's got offer full time. Many Tpts where upset because their pay was cut, but how many tpts would be kept making close to $28 per hour. Those Tpts will hardly never be called in

I am one of the new temp hires at KEP. All temps (we worked 40 hrs a week) hired in 08 were hired FT, approx 35. Our new senority date 3/29/10.$14.65 pay, and no info meeting yet for bennies. Questions: will we have to wait 90 days for bennies to kick in? I know we have no rights as sub, PAA days, vac. for 1 year. Basically just holiday pay right now. Which of course is what it is and we accept that.

The entry level benefit agreement is letter N5... Health Care starts at the 91st day- or seniority. So you should receive benefits day one. I also want you to make sure you receive the negotiated $1 per compensated hr contribution into your 401k- in lieu of company provided health care when you're retired. This is in addition to the 6.4% contribution to the acct in lieu of company provided pension. Vesting is a 3 yr waiting period. You are also provided w/ a "match" into a health care spending acct.(deduction before taxes on ea. check) of up to 300-600$ ea yr. Many do not take advantage of that but you should. It is a Use it lose it plan". If I had it I would... Premiums, prescriptions, co-pay vists- add up & it's free money! You must set that up if desired & the 401k is an automatic process but you may want to move YOUR money around for the best return results. As far as sub, and other M7 ess language, you are eligible to transfer within labor market if avail. positions exist... And during a plant closing, things are sometimes negotiated for effected employees- never 100% but the JOSC UAW will try. I've seen entry get something before (if plant closing involved). Congrats & best of luck Brother/Sister

100 hired as seniority earning "entry level" or 100 TPT's flipped to SVR's for 40 hours a week during the summer? I assume you mean truly hired persons, who have seniority now and are covered under the language/status of "Entry Level" aka 2nd tier?

Thanks for the info know da book, much appreciated.
Us new hires didn't know when benefits started. Union says 'Congrats, but we didn't hire you. The co. did and they have to inform you of details.' Local 72 worked hard to get us hired and we all appreciate the time they put in to get it done. Guess co. is taking their sweet time letting us know.
I do know Local 72 is trying to get the transition team to Kenosha with details and info on the plant closing.
General thoughts of workers is the plant will go down earlier than Oct. 2010. Plans are for the 2.7 engine line goes first, then the 3.5 line. One shift on 2.5 and 2 shifts on 3.7 now.
There is an about to retire workforce at Kenosha, and they are seeing different signs that something is up. After almost 30 years at the plant, I'd bet they know what they are talking about. Time will tell.

Something most likely is up- A lot of behind the scenes action takes place when a potential plant closing is on the horizon. With the labor market issues, the many at KEP who are within 1.5 yrs of retirement and the new language on ESS it is going to be "interesting". As far as the Local saying the Co. hired you and they need to get you the info... I disagree. The language is very clear, they (local) should be on the company's a** everyday until you get what rightfully is owed. Has there been any word on where you or other members may end up placed if you reloc. I know 85% are eligible to retire... For the others though
