As they do everywhere else with the same qualifications. You are union, so you know that if the woman had fewer years of seniority than you because she took time out to have a kid, she would not be paid the same wage for the same work as much of union pay is based on seniority and years on the job.
Not so in my unionised workplace, not at all. Same goes for those on sick leave or long term disability. Does not affect seniority whatsoever.

The method of Fabian socialism is to do things in increments. I have nothing to do with federal contracts.

[warning: mild rant]

I believe in pay based upon work ethic. Case in point, you come to work, do your job (well hopefully) and go home, get paid.
The less frequent you need to take time off work (outside of vacation, comp and sick time) shows loyalty, dedication, and the harder you work and with what attitude you complete it on a consistent basis....that boys and girls is what is ultimately rewarded.

I'm not going into details, but there are trends in workplace behavior and attendance, that people could classify as a 'general rule' and accept it for what it is. But these days, many will whine and cry "not fair" - when it's their own choices in life that dictate their compensation and longevity on a job.

If you're hired to do a job, and you do it until well until you make a choice, that's you're choice and nobody should expect nor demand to be rewarded for that when it affects the company you work for. Especially since the person next in line can do the same job with more efficiency, and less hassle from choices made outside of work. You're paid to do a job, if you start to slack off on any part of it, get ready to face the consequences.

I'm NOT for anyone (Gov't or otherwise) telling me or anyone else what to pay employees. It'll be decided based upon performance, man, woman, makes no difference. It's gotta be all about the work, the job, bottom line.

The less drama you cause for a company, the better. The companies are in it to make money (it's how they pay you) and getting people who share the same vision to push the company forward. If they like what a job pays, great, if they don't, they can work harder or get another job. Period. Getting the Gov't involve with these sorts of things never helps...it only makes things worse.
