Sup all, i have a ptf carrier in my station who used to be a regular carrier in another district. he transferred into our district a few years ago and got stuck in ptf purgatory with myself.

now, he showed me his pay stub, and the pay for his OT and Vtime Rate is off, whether it's the multiplier or the rate is off, i'm not sure, but his pay is short.

i called payroll on his behalf and they stated that because he is a ptf, his hourly wage is slightly higher than a regular's pay because ptfs don't get paid holiday, so that makes up for it. ok i get that. but when they multiply his hourly rate for ot/vtime they mulitply it against his 'annual' rate. which didn't make sense to me cause my understanding is that all ptfs are hourly workers not salaried workers.

comments? thoughts? advice as to how to proceed?

i called our union office and they said something to that effect too, that his pay will even out as he gets closer to his 'annual' rate, that his pay will get closer incrementally to actual ot/vtime rate. i was honestly confused, so i asked the ptf to bring in stubs from last year, earlier in the year and later

i will check my paystub tonight and do the math cuz my theory is that when he transferred and became a ptf, payroll 'forgot' to adjust his multiplier against his hourly rate now.

anyway, thanks all in advance

OT is figured on the base rate.  the base rate does NOT include the premium for holidays.
Take the hourly rate for your step for a REGULAR  and figure the 1.5x and 2x  on that.

Other important codes are:
FLSA: The Fair Labor Standards Act is a Federal Statute of general
application that establishes requirements for child labor, minimum wages,
equal pay, and overtime pay. FLSA work hours and FLSA overtime pay is
printed on the E&D whenever work hours for one or both weeks of the pay
period exceeds forty (40) hours for nonexempt employees — that’s us. It
seldom, if ever, affects us, even if noted on the E&D. The rare occasion is related to Night differential or Sunday Premiums.
ADJ FOR PP-YR PROCESSED: Shows that an adjustment for a specific pay period and year was processed.
GARNISHMENT PAYMENTS COMPL: Shows the garnishment balance as zero (0).
GRIEVANCE OR EEO SETTLEMENT: Simple.
INCLUDES BOND REFUND: Simple.
MERIT INCREASE: Simple.
MERIT LUMP SUM INCLUDED: Simple.
MULTI PP ADJS PROCESSED: Shows that adjustments for multiple pay periods were processed.
PERIODIC STEP INCREASE: Simple
PO INDEBT-PAID-OFF: Shows the indebtedness balance as zero (0).
RETROACTIVE PAYMENT: Shows this is a special check and Earnings Statement for retroactive payment.
RETRO PAY IN YTD AMTS: Shows that retroactive payment amounts have been added to the year-to-date totals.
SCHEDULED COLA INCREASE: Shows that a cost-of-living increase has
been added to the base salary effective with the pay period shown at the top of the E&D.
SCHEDULED CONTRACTUAL INCREASE: Shows that it is now reflected in the base salary.
UPDT YTD BAL CANCEL CHK: An adjustment for a cancelled check was
processed that updated the year-to-date earnings balance, affecting only the year-to-date fields.
UPDT YTD BK PAY AWD: An adjustment for a back pay award was
processed, affecting only the year-to-date fields. Most of the things that
have been discussed here will seldom, if ever, affect you. Of importance
to you, however, is that you pay attention to your E&D. You should get
paid for the hours that you actually worked, at the rate that you should
be paid, and your money should go where you intend it to go. Make sure that the premiums that you intend to be paid are actually paid.

Sorry. I must have missed this one. Article 8.4.

Postal Overtime Pay Rate.

The contractual overtime rate of pay is one

and one-half times the base straight-time rate. The overtime rate for parttime

flexible employees is the same as the overtime rate for full-time regular

employees in the same step and grade. This rate is slightly less than

one-and one-half times the part-time flexible base straight-time hourly rate.
