FYI Dave has filed a grievance on be half of everyone affected by Thanksgiving Holiday OT. For Front side not getting paid OT for one of there days at time and a half for thanksgiving even though up until this holiday the company has paid OT on the weeks for other holidays. The company says they are working but they don’t want everyone calling about there individual pay. So Dave talked To Jose and Jose told him to file on be half of everyone affected.


We would like to welcome Mr Mike Mayes Air Division Director, Mr. Gary Peterson and Jose Galarza to Visit MQT’S facilities on Oct. 3rd to walk thru the floor between 2:00-5:00. If you have any questions they will be here to answer any question, about anything from the International.

Subject: GEO payment communication that went out.

There were some hours missed being paid on the GEO. Please see below.

Thursday, July 18th, 2018
Good Afternoon,

As you may be aware, Geo Premiums increased earlier this month. Two checks have since been processed to capture the new increased Geo Premiums. Earlier this week, an error was discovered in the calculation of the OT payment rate for some employees. Therefore, the lump sum check issued on 07/19/2019 may not fully capture your specific Geo Premium.

Our internal teams are working to ensure proper over-time (OT) payments are calculated. The corrected amount, which will include Bereavement time in addition to the corrected OT pay rate, will be added to your next regularly issued check on 08/02/2019. We apologize for the confusion and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Should you have any additional questions prior to receiving your next payment, or if additional concerns arise once your next regularly scheduled check is received, please reach out to and we will promptly address.

Thank you,

The Envoy Attendance Team
