Yes this really sucks, have had several days when I was on a ridiculous 40k ( very recently) route that I would be 11.5 to 12.5 hours a day 3 times a week...and that .5 hour OT does NOT make up for the other 4 free hours!!The time period between average daily evaluation and 12 hours goes into the endless abyss of free hours worked, but any time after 12 is paid I believe.
"May be things will get a little better in the morning"In anticipation of next Monday's (7/6) mail/parcel avalanche, what is the consequence of working more than 12 hours in a day? Is this overtime eligible? Work your fingers to the bone and what do you get? Boney fingers.
Contract is clear. Any time over 12 hours is paid as OT and any time over 56 in a week is paid as OT If you have a 40K (8 hours a day) you get to work 4 hours for free and then the 10 minutes you work over 12 is OT; unless you work over 56 in a week. Then the 12 hours is absorbed into the 56 and anything over 56 is OT..... So when you work 57 hours in a week, you get paid for 40 and then 1 hour of OT. 41 hours paid for 57 hours actual work. 16 freeWhy does the contract and/or? This seems misleading. As a regular if I work one day at 12 hours and the rest at 8 hrs, will I get OT for that one day? So for the week I worked 44 hours total as an example.
Or even more puzzling / irritating is if you work 12 hrs 1 minute.....how does the union even let these rules get written in?Yes this really sucks, have had several days when I was on a ridiculous 40k ( very recently) route that I would be 11.5 to 12.5 hours a day 3 times a week...and that .5 hour OT does NOT make up for the other 4 free hours!!
Actually, working over the 2240 threshold changes the Carrier to hourly for that Guarantee period. Mgmt has to go back & recalculate the year per FLSA hourly standards.That's why the get so bent out of shape about 2080 and 2240.
They don't want to end up paying you for the free hours you've been working.
(If you hit 2240, they are required to pay you for all that free time between the evaluated hours and the 12hours, going back over the year.)
