Yes X-stew, over 8 hours on the 5th scheduled day is penalty overtime. But this is December and we are discussing the hours we are currently working. I didn't want to confuse what was already a stupidly confused issue. No clerks at the REC have gotten penalty overtime for ages, and I deliberately decided not to bring it up at this time.

I'm not sure how helpful the REC stewards have been to our new careers. They sure dropped the ball explaining the vacation roster. Not sure if you read the confusion a few days back.

/m40294 On 5th scheduled day in your scenario, you should get penalty [double] V-time for all hours over 8, not merely OT. Except annually in the 4 week Dec.exclusion period.

/m40302 To be certain you get Christmas time-and-one-half, look on your stub for the letter "C", not "OT".

So far as getting straight info, I found union much more helpful than mgt who I found usually doesn't want you to know what you're entitled to. Read the union boards regularly.

For your Christmas holiday, whether or not it's the 25th, you'll receive time and a half for the hours you work. Of course you also receive your regular holiday pay, so in total it is double time and a half. Every year it seems someone gets the idea that it's triple time, but this is not true.

When I became career about 18 years ago, I had a meeting with about 10 new careers, and an experienced supervisor who answered all the questions we had. Perhaps now there are just too many new careers for this to be feasible.

I was a 2011 conversion and we didn't get any info either. There were some questions that I didn't get answered for quite a while! They should have a small pamphlet that they give to new careers that explains the basics!

I do have 1 question. How much is it that we get paid for working Christmas Day. I've been told that it's more than if you work any other holiday, but not sure how much.

/40297 Thats for sure. The only thing I was given was a sheet of paper with my conversion packet that had paragraphs about career stuff... ie benefits, annual and sick leave and tsp/fers stuff. Did the 2011 ftfs get some kind of career orientation? Why wouldn't they be doing something like that now?
I know the union meeting I attended was supposed to answer some questions but it wasn't the end all be all.

Management sure has done a crappy job telling the new FTF's what they need to know. With all these questions about overtime, holidays, ODL , bidding and the vacation roster, I wonder what is next.

I'm unsure if you're implying that PSE's have an overtime benefit that careers do not have. Just to be clear, they do not. The way the PSE's overtime hours are calculated is to their disadvantage.

So only pse's get overtime for over 40 hours. Thanks. That's all I needed.

As a career employee, you receive overtime pay for working over 8 hours on a scheduled day, and all hours worked on your non-scheduled days. The total number of hours for the week is not a factor. For example: if you took leave without pay on 4 days, then worked a 10 hour day, you would be paid for 8 regular hours and 2 overtime hours.

If you worked 10 hours on each of the first 4 days of your week, you've been paid for 32 regular hours and 8 overtime hours. On your fifth scheduled day you will be paid for 8 regular hours, then overtime for any time beyond 8.

By way, I found your first post on this topic confusing as well.

Reread it then lol. I clearly said do careers get overtime pay for anything over 40 hours in a week? I'm on my last day, already hit 40 hours for the week, will the rest of the day now be overtime even though it's not over 8 hours for the day yet? Also does capitalizing random words make you feel cool? Like THIS? Yep I feel pretty cool, carry on.

What you said MAKES NO SENSE. Are you saying there is a way to go over 40 hours in a week, and NOT go over 8 hours on one of those days?

Anyone with basic reading comprehension want to answer my question?

Um, what exactly are you saying here? If you go over 40 hours in a week, then obviously at least one day was over 8 hours. It's the time beyond 8 hours you get paid overtime for. Do you want to be paid overtime TWICE for that span of time? Because over 8 hours in a day also puts you over 40 for the week?

Careers get overtime pay for anything over 8 hours a day, but do we also get overtime pay for anything over 40 hours in a week as well? Or is that only for pse's?
