  • Variable Pay Plans:  Members have asked if TEAM was aware of the changes to the Variable Pay Plan. TEAM is aware of the intent to wrap-up the old plan with a 100% payout for Q1, and a meeting is being scheduled to discuss the new plan design.
  • NCS (Net Credited Service) and COS (Continuity of Service) Date:  In our February 17th memo we advised certain members to check that their NCS date was consistent with Article 7.06.  A number of members found problems with their NCS date and several raised concerns about their COS date.  We are therefore now advising all members to check that both their NCS and COS dates are correct in ESS.  See Corporate Policy No. 204.07 “Service and Bridging” for a comprehensive explanation of these dates.  It is important that the dates are correct as they factor into calculations pertaining to vacation, sick leave, DB pension, VRTIP and severance.  Members discovering a discrepancy in their dates should contact the TEAM office to discuss next steps.
  • Mark Your Calendar:  TEAM’s 2017 Take-a-Break and United Way fundraising events will take place on:

Tuesday, June 6         -   Goldeyes Ballpark - Picnic Park, 11:30 am to 1:30 pm

Wednesday, June 7    -   Corydon - Hugo Piazza, 11:30 am to 1 pm

Thursday, June 8        -   Osborne building - parking lot, 11:30 am to 1 pm

Amongst other prizes in the fundraising raffle, TEAM is sponsoring two prizes of an extra paid day off work.  Raffle tickets will be $2 each or 3 for $5.  Arrangements will be made to allow members in the regions to participate.

  • Board Meetings:  The latest minutes and reports have been posted: 2016, 2017.
  • Free Monitor:  TEAM has two surplus non-widescreen LCD monitors.  If you are interested in taking one, submit your name here.  Two names will be pulled at random next Friday.
