High Speed Held Away 

Brothers and Sisters,
POST 85 Employees...You will find if you hit F12 when doing your tie up time slip that there is a spot for high speed. You will need to know the DOLLAR amount that you are claiming. High speed is computed by taking the amount of time it takes you to get from your Home TERMINAL limits to the away from home TERMINAL limits. If you stop and mess around enroute, it lessens your rate of high speed... Take the running time as below exampled and divide the basic day rate by that time and that will give you the minute by minute rate. Take the minute by minute rate times the minutes of HAHT.. That should be what you are entitled to. I guarantee they are only paying you at regular HAHT rates... Take the difference and put it in the field on the F12 screen. You may have to do this the next time you go to work by adjusting your previous time slip . I know they will not pay but you need to follow up by submitting the R-100 to our office with the denial..

 Below is the divisor for computing High speed held-away.

Example:
Your running time switch to switch totals 4.5 
hours reduced to minutes is 270, and your 
HAHT time is 8 hours when reduced is 480min.
We will divide rate of pay ($229.00) by 270
minute, which will give us our cost per min.
270 divided by basic rate $229.00 = .85/min. 
multiplied (x) by 8 hours held away, reduced 
to 480 minutes is $408.00 in High Speed Held 
Away.  Show the difference in the amount paid 
for HAHT versus the amount you’re claiming at 
the high speed rate, see below…
EXAMPLE: You earned $100 in regular HAHT 
and at the high speed rate you’re claiming 
$200, your non service claim should be for 
$100.00.
Post 85 employees should make claim and will 
find a new pay bullet within CMTS for this 
claim.  NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO 
SUBMIT A HEAT/TROUBLE TICKET.
Time keeping clerks will not do the math for 
you, please follow the devisor example and 
claim accordingly.  Please include a copy of
your DH time slip to support your high speed 
claim as well as your non service claim for the 
HAHT at the high speed rate of pay.
