Hi everyone,


I was wondering if anyone could help?.............In November 2010, I changed departments to fibreglass department whereby I also recieve dirt money!

I receive pay at an hourly rate, which is listed as "basic" on my payslip, I then receive dirt money, detailed as "special bonus" , my bonus listed as "bonus", overtime listed as "overtime" and attendance bonus listed as "attendance"! eg


basic 39 @ 6.187

special bonus 39 @ 0.8974

bonus 41 @ 4.3454

overtime 2 @ 9.2805

attendance 156 @ 0.1602


My problem is that overtime is paid at time and a half, which as you can see is based on £6.187, taking overtime to £9.2805.


However, many of my colleagues have their "special bonus" (dirt money) as part of their basic hourly rate, taking their basic to £6.187 + £0.897 = £7.084, so when they do overtime they get it paid based on this hourly rate, which takes their overtime to £10.6266!


I have queried this with my supervisor and HR, and at first they give the whole "different contracts, changed two years ago" excuses ( I have worked there for 4 years), but they have now said they are going "to amend" our pay so myself and others receive the same as what our colleagues earn per hour!..... Great!!


Thing is, surely if this is an amendment, ie fixing something that was wrong, should we not be entitled to back pay?


The way I see it is since November, I have been down on £1.346 for every hour of overtime I have worked!........about £250!


I have asked about back pay, to which I got a blunt No!!!


We have no union!!.............Help?!
