Frequently asked questions...
Q. Could some employees receive more than $7,377?
Yes. Since individual payments are based upon eligible compensated hours, an employee who was compensated
for overtime hours worked during the calendar year could receive more than $7,377.
Q. Which U.S. employees get Profit Sharing?
Regular full-time hourly employees in the U.S. are eligible to receive Profit Sharing amounts unless they have
terminated their employment for a reason other than death, layoff or approved leave, retirement, or sale of the
operation in which they were employed.
Q. How is the Profit-Sharing amount calculated?
It is calculated through a formula based on North America profits on a pre-tax basis and excluding “special items.”
The formula generates a Profit-Sharing pool based on $1 for every $1 million of North America pre-tax profit and
compensated hours by employee. Individual payments vary based upon the individual’s eligible compensated
hours. Compensated hours are the number of hours for which employees are compensated. Hours for things like
paid vacation time, paid holiday time, etc., are included in the calculation.
Compensated hours include hours that an eligible employee receives pay in the Plan Year for:
• Base Pay• Vacation• Holiday• Overtime (with each hour paid at premium rates to be counted as one hour)
• Bereavement• Apprentice Training• Jury Duty• Short-term Military Duty• Family Day• Call-in
Q. Can you give an example of how the formula works in practice?
Number of Participants with > / = 1,850 Compensated Hours = 20,172
Number of Participants with < 1,850 Compensated Hours = 33,839
Avg. Compensated Hours for Participants with < 1,850 Compensated Hours = 1,323.5
Eligible Profit-Sharing Amount = $7,377 / Total Compensated Hours = 92.4 million
Total Profit-Sharing Fund = (20,172 * $7,377) + (33,839 * $7,377 * (1,323.5 / 1,850)) = $327,395,712
Profit Share Per Compensated Hour = $327.4 million / 92.4 million hours = $3.54/hour
Employee A – 2,400 Compensated Hours * $3.54 = $8,496
Employee B – 1,850 Compensated Hours * $3.54 = $6,549
Employee C – 800 Compensated Hours * $3.54 = $2,832
Note: This is an example and utilizes rounding. Final profit share per compensated hour may vary from this
Q. How are union dues calculated?
