Professional Staff Collective Agreement 2014 - 2017
19. Ten Hour Breaks
- Ten-hour breaks
- When overtime is necessary it will, wherever reasonably practical, be so arranged that employees have at least ten (10) consecutive hours off duty between the work of successive days.
- Where an employee is instructed to work any part of a ten (10) hour break between the completion of work on one day and the commencement of work on the next, they will be paid at overtime rates for all time worked until such ten (10) hour break is taken.
- The provisions of this clause will apply in the case of shift workers as if eight (8) hours were substituted for ten (10) hours for the purpose of changing shift rosters, or where a shift worker does not report for duty and a day worker or a shift worker is required to replace such shift worker.
