|Non-ABC Job Pay
Some value added activities are not feasible to be put on Engineered
Labor Standards. Activities such as reviewing customer returns or
cleaning a small area are paid for the time spent on that particular
activity. Each of these non-ABC activities are tracked separately.
Fixed Delays and Breaks
Delays can have assigned fixed values. Battery changes, equipment
pre-shift/trip inspections and traveling between departments are
examples of fixed delays. Employees are paid only for the length of
the fixed delay or rest break, regardless of the amount of time they
take for that activity.
When an employee works overtime, their ABC pay will be increased by
the same overtime factor that is required by state and federal
regulations and the requirements of the labor agreement if a
collective bargaining agreement is in place.
This is earnings protection put in place that when an employee’s
weekly ABC earnings fall below their goal earnings, the employee
will receive the equivalent of their hourly earnings or a portion
thereof. The Safety Net can range from the lowest, minimum wage, to
the highest, their normal hourly wages.
