Overtime Guidance

       Article X, Section 9 outlines time paid outside of regular schedule.  Here are some of the highlights.


    1. All hours worked over 40 hours in a week will be paid at 1.5x.
    2. Double time will be paid for all hours worked on the second day of rest (usually Sunday).
    3. The minimum amount of overtime charged on a first or second day of rest is 2 hours, even if you work less.
    4. If you are scheduled to work overtime on a weekend and the work is cancelled after you leave work on Friday, you will still be paid for 2 hours of overtime on that day.
    5. If you are called into work on an emergency basis (less than 8 hours of notification), you will receive 4 hours of premium pay as a minimum.  This includes coming in early on a day when you are already scheduled to work.  (Example:  You are called to come in because your unit is malfunctioning at arrive at work at 6:30 am on Tuesday morning.  If your normal start time is 7:30 am, you would be paid 4 hours overtime even though you only worked an additional hour.
    6. If you work 2 hours of overtime or more on normal work day, you earn an additional $8 towards a meal.
    7. If you are called at home to respond to a question regarding work, you will receive 1 hour of premium pay.
