Understanding retroactive pay calculations on your pay statement


As you know, Arbitrator Elizabeth MacPherson’s final decision on June 11, 2020 included wage increases for 2018, 2019 and 2020 year-to-date for CUPW-represented employees. These wage increases will be paid out retroactively from August through October.

Retroactive pay calculations can be complicated and confusing, and are not always clearly explained on an employee’s pay statement. With that in mind, we’ve prepared a document to help CUPW-represented employees understand how retroactive pay is calculated when it appears on their pay statement.

Download this sample pay statement for an employee represented by the CUPW-Urban bargaining unit to better understand how retroactive pay is calculated.
