On the APWU web site, President Bill Burrus answers questions posed by members. Today he talks about retirement annuities and 'Pay for Performance'. His comment on PFP is interesting regardless of which side of the fence you happen to be on:
'Performance pay invites favoritism and inserts subjective analysis into the pay system. We do not envy EAS employees and supervisors who are paid on the basis of their perceived performance. On occasion they receive more than APWU employees; but over an extended period, our negotiated increases, including cost-of-living adjustments, far exceed those received by employees covered by performance-pay plans, and we are not subject to evaluation by managers.'
