Upon being informed of this, CUB directed our attention to this issue to soon right this wrong. A study by the city’s Department of Human Resources showed how members were missing out on money they should be making, given the overtime they were working. CUB began working with the Department of Public Works and the Office of the Labor Commissioner to ultimately right this wrong.
Since these supervisors have been moved to a work status that qualifies them for overtime, members were paid out their past comp time in a lump sum one-time payment. Ultimately as a result of the union’s work on members’ behalf, not only will supervisors at solid waste get paid overtime for the extra work they do, they’ll also have the money from the one-time payout of comp time. When members faced unfairness in the workplace, CUB stepped up to the plate and fought for our members to right a wrong.
