Basic Agreement
Letter 46: Sunday Night Start-Up

Item 46 - Sunday Night Start-Up

The Company and the Union recognize the mutual advantages associated with commencing the work week on Sunday nightshift. The Sunday-Thursday schedule shall be observed for employees scheduled to work eight (8) hour shifts. If either party wishes to terminate this schedule, they shall consult the other party and provide thirty days (30) written notice.

  • The first shift of the regular work week is Sunday nightshift 11:00 pm - 7:00 am.
  • The last shift of the regular work week will be Thursday nightshift 11:00 pm - 7:00 am.
  • Overtime shall be paid for employees working Friday nightshift 11:00 pm - 7:00 am when working on eight (8) hour shifts.
  • Statutory Holidays celebrated on a Monday will be paid at 1 1/2 times the regular wage rate starting Sunday nightshift if required to work, or Sunday nightshift will be recognized as the employee's statutory holiday day off.
  • When scheduled on eight (8) hour nightshifts, no employee will be entitled to receive the $.75 premium in accordance with Clause 5.15 of the Basic Agreement. Employees who work the Friday nightshift, 11:00 pm to 7:00 am will be entitled to this premium (all other entitlements remain the same).

The intent of this Letter of Agreement is to start the work week on Sunday nightshift. No employee shall gain or loose any entitlement as a result of the modification of the workweek.
