Overtime is defined as authorized time worked in excess
of forty (40) hours in the designated workweek.
Overtime shall be compensated at one and a half (1 1/2)
times the employee's regular hourly rate. For purposes of calculating
overtime, the regular hourly rate of pay is determined by dividing the
monthly salary amount by 173.33 hours. Shift differentials shall be
included in the regular hourly rate of pay. All other payments and allowances
are not included in the regular hourly rate of pay.
All overtime worked shall be compensated by cash or
compensatory time. Such determination shall be made prior to the time
an employee is requested to work overtime, if practicable. However,
all overtime worked beyond the accrual of two hundred and forty (240)
hours of compensatory time shall be paid in cash.
Overtime will be credited on a one-quarter hour basis
with a full quarter of an hour credit granted if half or more of that
period is worked. Smaller fractional units will not be accumulated.
Paid holiday, paid sick leave, paid vacation and paid
CTO, when used, shall be counted as time worked for purposes of this
Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be interpreted
as requiring a duplication or a pyramiding of holiday, vacation, daily,
or weekly overtime payments involving the same hours of work.
When an employee is separated from service, he/she is
entitled to a lump-sum payment for any earned compensatory time by reason
of previous overtime worked.
The scheduling of CTO shall be by mutual agreement of
the employee and the appropriate administrator. When an employee’s
CTO balance is over 180 hours and mutual agreement is not possible,
the appropriate administrator may direct the employee to take earned
CTO provided that seven (7) days notice is provided to the employee.
Overtime for which cash compensation will be paid should
be scheduled for payment in the pay period following the pay period
in which the overtime was worked.
The appropriate CMA administrator shall assign overtime
work. Upon the request of the Union, and where practicable, the CMA
shall establish a system of overtime distribution to employees. Such
a system may include a procedure that requests and utilizes volunteers
to perform overtime work from among bargaining unit employees who are
qualified and available within the appropriate work area.
In emergency situations or when there are an insufficient
number of qualified employees desiring to work overtime, employees may
not decline overtime assignments.
For purposes of this Article, "emergency"
shall also mean a circumstance, which requires action to preserve the
basic operations of the campus.
Employees shall have an eight (8) hour rest period from
the end of an overtime assignment until the beginning of the next regularly
scheduled work shift, except in cases of emergency. In the event the
next regularly scheduled work shift begins less than eight (8) hours
from the conclusion of such an overtime assignment, the employee may
report to work at the completion of the eight (8) hour rest period.
The employee has the option of making up the hours missed at the beginning
of the regularly scheduled shift by (1) changing his start time for
that day until eight (8) hours after the completion of the overtime
assignment and then working eight (8) hours, or (2) using accrued leave
credits for the hours missed, or (3) taking off the hours missed as
unpaid leave of absence.
In the event an employee is required to respond to work-related
issues on their regularly scheduled time off via telephone or other
electronic device, and the time worked for any individual occurrence
exceeds fifteen (15) minutes, such time shall be counted as time worked.
This time worked outside of the workplace shall not be considered call-back
pursuant to Provision 12.15 below.
Call-back is work performed at a time outside of and
not continuous with an employee's regular work schedule. An employee
called back to work shall be credited with a minimum of four (4) hours
work time providing the employee has been called back to work without
having been notified prior to completion of the work shift, or the employee
is notified prior to the completion of the work shift and the work begins
more than three (3) hours after the completion of the work shift.
An employee may be called back to work at the discretion
of the appropriate administrator. The appropriate administrator shall
endeavor to assign call-back work on a rotating basis from a list of
qualified volunteers. If no volunteers are available, or in emergency
situations, the employee who is called back to work shall be required
to perform the work. When an employee is called back to work, only the
hours worked shall be counted as time worked for purposes of computing
overtime. The hours not worked, but credited, shall be at the straight-time
