Check your timecards!


First, the Company recently changed to Kronos Timekeeper for everything.  Everyone needs to make sure their schedules and time cards are correct!

Second, Local 167 recently settled a work day definition grievance where some people lost PTO accrual based on early Saturday AM time changes.  The grievance resolution changed PTO accrual from a weekly cap to a yearly cap up to your 2080 hours worked in the year.  This means that you may earn PTO faster than before.  Basically, as soon as you reach 2080 hours worked you won’t earn more PTO that year.  Most of your small bumps in accrual are due to this.  Unfortunately, Corporate payroll also appears to have counted hours they shouldn’t have.  FTO pay and other types of “extra” hours got credited to some people causing large PTO bank increases.

AHEMS Management is currently looking into who got what.  We do not yet know the scope of what may be a significant error.  We strongly suggest not “spending” any extra at this point.  If you have questions about PTO please talk with your Manager or call the bat phone at 763-614-6504.
