  • Comission Pennsylvania

    At my place of employment we have commision paid routesales men
    The Company just started to have mandatory meetings at 5am at least every two weeks The routemen are in the union not actually salaried but are paid like salary on commission only
    The contract states that they can hold 2 Saturday meetings a year and will pay them $50.00 to attend
    The question is should they have to pay them for these 5AM MEETINGS ?
    If they do not attend they will be wrote up and possibly terminated
    Is this fair The other union employees get paid for any meetings the co has on our time

    If they are being paid in accordance with the contract, just what is the problem?

    Oh, wait, I see. The contract stipulates twice a year, but the meetings are now held 26 times a year.

    You better take this to your legal counsel and find out if the company is violating the contract. I could see that going several ways, none of them good for the company.

      Just an update on the 5AM meeting
      Arbitrator ruled that the Co has a right to hold meetings
      But they have to pay each routesalesmen $50.00 per meeting
      they have held 10 meetings there are 23 routesalemen

      Of course they are trying to appeal this in court

      Do you think can could win ?

            The way I read the question was did I think the "employees/union" could win it? Yeah. But now that I read the question again, the question itself wasn't clear.
            Do you think can could win ?
            Huh?

                In the contracts I've seen, arbitration is binding and precludes further legal action, unless the agreement violates some particular wage and hour law.
