KINGS UPDATE – RETENTION BONUS 

What is less confusing than contract language that states, “A Retention Bonus of two hundred dollar ($200.00) for all full-time employees and one hundred dollars ($100.00) for part-time employees”?  Your Union is now in the process of working with Kings to get the miscalculation of the Retention Bonus corrected, and working together we will fix the problem.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI - TUESDAY, AUGUST 24, 2021

KINGS UPDATE – RETENTION BONUS – UNUSED VACATION PAY

Your Union is pleased to report success concerning the payment of the Retention Bonus now projected for inclusion in this week’s pay period.  As you will recall, the Retention Bonus is $200.00 for full-time members and $100.00 for part-time members on the payroll as of May 31, 2021.
