If you doubleshift, do you get overtime?

    As a package handler, if I decide to double shift all week, do I still get overtime for everything over 5 hours per day? Or do they not give you overtime if you double shift? Well, they have to pay you overtime after 40 hours a week, right?

    OT after 8 hours a day on a double shift...unless otherwise specified in your supplement.

    If you are scheduled to double shift you receive OT after 8 hours/day or 40 hours/week.

    Based on keeping track of my time, this is how it works HERE-

    OT for PT employees working inside starts after 5 hours for the shift. If you work a second shift, OT starts after 8 hours worked for the day. BUT, only [up to] 5 hours from the previous shift counts towards those 8. Example: If you worked 6,7,8 hours in preload, you still have to work 3 hours in twilight before OT kicks in. Likewise, if you only work 3.5 hours in preload, you'll be working 4.5 in twilight before you get OT.

    This applies (here) to both double shifting or driver helping. It probably doesn't work this way in other regions.

    That is crazy. Real simple in the Central Region. OT after 5 hours for PT unless you are driving. Think of it as a penalty for not hiring enough FT.

    You'd more than likely be required to file a grievance to get this. If you volunteer for the work they won't want to give you OT after 5.

    Don't really matter what UPS wants, but we do make OT after 5 hrs and always have.

    greengrenades To be the man, you gotta beat the man.

    I never had to file a grievance to get it. When I was part time it was OT after 5 hours every time. I'd never work more then 7.50 so the OT would stick and wouldn't go back down to normal rate.

    If you are asked to come in early-----yes.

    No...unless your sup told you to come in and start early...and that should always be based on seniority. If you elect to come in early without being told...you are working for free. We don't work for free!
