What I am looking for is how does the annual salary of a Senior Radiation Protection compare to other jobs. Would they for instance get more or less than an operator or a maintenance technician just to use an example. Any comparison would be welcome.

Thanks

When I was with FPL, all of those positions were represented by the IBEW. Senior HP Tech made the same as a topped out Maintenance Craftsman and within a few cents per hour of AUO. Licensed operator, Maintenance Foreman (and I&C Digi-spec) made more an hour. Positions above that were outside the bargaining unit, so individually negotiated.

OT varied between groups at different times.

Contract HP Techs make about the same as the cafeteria workers in most plants.

PG&E had a posting for a house tech the end of February, starting pay just over $36/hr.  The current outages going on seem to range from $22/hr to $28/hr with per diem from $70 to $112.50 to none.

It is hard for me to believe that wages are not higher.  When I worked at a project in the St. Louis area they paid the Sr techs $26/hr, but the laborers were getting $28/hr.  In IL tech are getting $25/hr, journeyman electricial $38/hr.

It is hard to believe that tech pay isn't higher.  Most of the house tech at the plants I have worked at are making more than $30/hr.

Don't start with the PerDiem thing.  Skilled workers (ie electricial, pipefitters, welders, etc) are all making $35/hr or more.  When you work 6/12s, get $25/hr $100/day you get $2900/wk.  When you you are getting $35/hr you are getting $3080/wk.

I guess most senior don't consider themselves "skilled" and are happy with getting less than the individuals emptying the trash.

What will it take for techs to say enough.  With or without PerDiem we should be getting $40/hr or more.  I believe companies would bid more if the techs would just agree they are worth more.

What will it take for techs to make more?

Gosh, I wish we had a thread on this site where we all talked about that!
