The Alternate Compensation Program is an option that we have in the local bargaining agreement with Kaiser and Local 30 starting with paragraph 1900.
In lieu of benefits those that participate will be paid 20% over base wages. We will look at what is being given up in exchange for this and will be referring to the contract which is available on www.opeiulocal30.org and MyHR. It is something that should not be taken lightly as you are locked in the program for a year. You may want some writing materials available to help keep track of and make comparisons.
