Article 37, Section 1, Paragraph B gives us the right to request a day without overtime. Our management team thinks they don't need to make up their minds on granting it until the morning of that day. How are you supposed to make plans for anything if you won't know till 10 hrs before you're doing it? Is this common practice in other centers? We used to be given earlier approval, but it was either a mgmt change in our building or a change in company attitude. The contract doesn't say they have have to give us notice, but it sure does mess with the whole idea of an 8 hr day. We gotta get after our negotiating team for more clear, concise language.
