Union Tips:

9 hour rest rule:

 A rest period is defined as the lapse of time occurring  between being released from duty at the job site or at the base location, plus any paid travel time, and the time of reporting back to work. Paid travel time is not considered as part of the rest period.   A rest period of nine or more continuous hours off the job is required between any period of time worked, as defined above, to avoid accumulation toward 12 cumulative or  continuous hours or to stop double-time pay after an employee is already in a double-time pay situation for extensive overtime.  Time taken for meals at the job site in conjunction with  work is considered working time. Ordinarily, mealtime is not considered working time; however, time is paid for meals eaten at the job site.

Section 5.10 of the CBA

Pre-qualifying Examinations: An employee who is scheduled for a pre-qualifying examination is allowed up to sixteen hours per year with pay in connection with any examination arranged by the Company during the employee’s regular working hours or that requires that he or she be excused from work. The employee bears the cost of his or her own transportation to and from the location of the examination, and of any related personal expenses. Information regarding preparing for prequalification exams is available online via E-Bid.

 For those of you who need to take tests remember we get 16 hours a year .....
