MLK and Wage Hikes
Monday, January 21st is Martin Luther King Day and — under the terms of the new IAPE Dow Jones contract — it's a company holiday for all IAPE-represented US based employees. For IAPE-represented Factiva employees, the company is "closed" for the day.
That means if you have to work on Monday, January 21, 2008, you're entitled to holiday pay (time and a half) PLUS another day off or another day's straight pay. Make sure you file for it. If you have any trouble collecting, call the office immediately at 609-275-6020.
At the same time, Dow Jones tells us the Dow Jones 3% wage increase due February 1, 2008 will appear in your February 28th paycheck. The Factiva 3.25% increase, effective January 1, 2008, will also appear in the February 28th paycheck.
If you have any problems with either issue, give us a call at the IAPE office or shoot us an email.
