    At the end of the twilight shift today we were informed our start time had changed from 5:30pm to 4:00pm tomorrow. They posted a bunch of sheets stating all time worked from 4:00-5:30 would be "premium pay".

    does that mean that my OT would start at 12:00 resulting in only 6 1/2 hours of straight time?

    You need to check your supplemental contract language.

    Some supplements have a provision.... if you start before your "posted" start time,

    it entitles you to time and 1/2. (hence "premium pay")

    unless I was given 24 hrs notice, I would let them know I would be there at my regularly posted shift.

    It means you will be paid premium pay from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm ( in the Central, it would be time and a half for an early start and OT pay will not be pyramided.)

    You will then have to work an additional 8 hours before overtime kicked back in.

    So yes, if you only worked 8 hours, you would have 6.5 hours of straight time and 1.5 hours of OT.

    If you worked 9 hours, you would have 7.5 hours of straight time and 1.5 hours of OT.

    If you worked 10 hours, you would have 8 hours straight time and 2 hours OT.

    Are you 22.3? Is 5:30 your scheduled start? Do you work over 8 hours?
