can they mass text 30 to 40 mins before normal start time and move it up an hour and 45 mins
Supposed to be at least an hour before.
that was my understanding. due to conditions most of us were on our way in
so seeing it was late notifacation can i demand my 8
Ask your steward.
Why do they even have your cell phone number to start with? Second, your phone was "off" and you show up at your normal time and demand your 8.
"Act of God". They can do pretty much whatever they want with the start time. Nice if they give us advanced notice but don't think they have to.
Just reply back......Sick Day.
Where does it say in the contract they can change the start time at will?
Where does it say in the contract they can't?
You didn't receive that message. Go in at normal time, and have them pit you to work
I always say I'm not allowed to "text" out so you can't text information to me
In the Central. you are still guaranteed 8 hours if you show up. But you are not guaranteed to work everyday. Your 40 hour guarantee is void due to snow storm, acts of God....
ARTICLE 12-HOURS OF WORK
There shall be a weekly guarantee in each center as follows: In each
classification in each center, the most senior ninety percent (90%)
of employees called or put to work on the first (1st) workday shall
be afforded the opportunity of working forty (40) hours of straight
time work during the week.
The guarantee shall not apply:
(a) to an employee who fails to work a scheduled workday during
the workweek, or is suspended or discharged for just cause;
(b) when there are conditions beyond the Employer’s control such
as fire, flood, destruction, strikes, snow storm, or Acts of God, and
these conditions cause a curtailment of all or part of an Employer’s
(c) the weeks of Christmas, New Years and Fourth of July. Any time
off during this period will be offered by seniority, when business
Define act of God though because that to me means a spur of the moment thing and not a snow storm the management team knew about coming through days before.
It does say "snow storm"
when there are conditions beyond the Employer’s control such as fire, flood, destruction, strikes, snow storm, or Acts of God
I see acts of God being earthquake, tornados, the building disappearing...
What about locusts? Giant swarm of locusts descend on the area?
I'm not sure god creates snow either...
Show up at regular scheduled start time, clock in, you get paid starting your scheduled time, they say didn't you get the text? You respond ..what text.
If aliens take over the planet is it an act of god?
