Hello all. I work preload an average of 20 hours a week for the past 3 years. There was a storm and we couldn't get a couple trailors today (Thursday). Our super went up to us all towards the end of the shift and told us tomorrows start time is going to be 4:30 instead of 5:35. Which is great, another hour of pay (overtime pay). However I told them I'm likely not going to be able to make that time as I have made other arrangements. They said I have to. Otherwise a written warning. Every time before we're asked to come in earlier than the scheduled time, I have. My questions are.
1. ) Are they correct? Where is this rule posted in the policy?
2. ) If so , what stops them from saying i have to come in two, three or four hours earlier.
Just trying to learn because our union steward is a joke.

What state are you in. Different areas have different rules for everything. In order to get any credible advise people will need those

every supplement is different, but there must be one week notice (in this area) to start time changes, up to one hour.
