Bouchard pay cut


#1

Just heard everyone at Bouchard taking a 18% pay cut?


#2

That 18% number has been part of the rumor
Of pay cuts at more than one company.

Edit, I wonder if it’s the same dock guy at tremley point saying RTC, Kirby, and now Bouchard are all taking an 18% pay cut.


#3

I’ll say it again, the towing industry is dying and it’s just not because of low oil prices.

Subchapter M will drive nearly all the mom and pops out of business, some for better some for worse.


#4

I hope .gov enforces it on their own boats.


#5

Bouchard is not offering the pay they use to. Friend of mine was offered an AB spot at 260 (40 of it is for “travel pay”). last I heard before that, they where over 300. not sure if thats true though.


#6

Any local Norfolk guys looking for part times work, mates???


#7

All new hires are starting out less (ABs went from 270+55 travel to 220 + 40 travel), Assistants are starting 100 dollars less a day. Not sure about other positions.


#8

so what is assistant engineer pay?


#9

With travel pay included, somewhere around 450


#10

if its a 2/1 rotation that’s some good coin.


#11

True. Most are Day for day and go ahead and take out 1k of that for travel back and forth for one hitch.
