Weekends. The Employer will make a good faith effort to schedule all staff nurses to every other weekend off, or to two weekends off out of four successive weekends. Except in emergency situations, all such nurses shall be scheduled as stated above. The employer may schedule a nurse to less than every other weekend. The weekend shall be defined for first (day) and second (evening) shift personnel as Saturday and Sunday. For third (night) shift personnel, the weekend shall be defined as Friday night and Saturday night. However, in the event any employee agrees to work on an unscheduled weekend, all time worked on the unscheduled weekend shall be paid at the rate of double time the regular rate of pay. Time worked on the next regularly scheduled weekend shall be at the employee’s regular rate of pay. This section shall not apply to staff nurses who request more frequent weekend duty or who request weekend work on a continuous basis or who trade single or double days on a weekend.
Weekends. The Employer will schedule all regular full and part-time employees for at least every other weekend off. In the event an employee works two successive weekends, all time worked on the second weekend shall be paid at the rate of time and one-half (1 ½) the regular rate of pay. The third regularly scheduled weekend shall be paid at the employee's regular rate of pay. Employees regularly scheduled to work every third weekend who work the weekend prior to or following a regularly scheduled weekend will be paid at the rate of time and one-half (1 ½ X) the regular rate of pay for the extra weekend hours worked. Weekend time worked on a regularly scheduled weekend is not eligible for time and one-half (1 ½ X). Subject to advance approval, employees may request the trading of weekends, providing the schedule change does not place the Employer into an overtime condition or premium pay condition pursuant to this section. In the event that sufficient weekend coverage is not available, the Employer will seek volunteers before scheduling employees to work extra weekend shifts. This section shall not apply to supplemental part-time or per diem employees. Premium pay provided for in this section shall not apply to employees hired to work eve1y weekend. Premium pay provided herein shall not apply to time spent for non-mandatory educational offerings. The weekend for premium pay purposes shall be defined as 11:00 p.m. Friday to 11:00 p.m. Sunday. For twelve (12) hour shift employees it shall be defined as 7:00p.m. Friday to 7:00p.m. Sunday.
Weekends. The Employer will make all reasonable efforts to schedule nurses so that they have at least every other weekend off. In the event a nurse is required to work either Saturday or Sunday on two (2) consecutive weekends, all time worked on the second weekend shall be paid for at the rate of one and one-half (1½) times the nurse’s regular hourly rate of pay, unless the nurse voluntarily agrees to work on the weekend either at the time of hire or thereafter (including any trading of weekend work). The next regularly scheduled weekend shall be paid at the nurse’s regular rate of pay. The weekend shall be defined as commencing at 11:00 p.m. on Friday and concluding at 11:00 p.m. on Sunday (for 12-hour shift nurses, from 7:00 p.m. on Friday to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday) for a night shift nurse unless mutually agreed otherwise.
Weekends. The present practice of weekend-off scheduling shall be continued until any proposed changes are discussed in the Agency or Facility Professional Committee meeting. At the Agency or Facility Professional Committee meeting, the discussion shall include operational need and the rationale for change.
Weekends. On Saturdays, Sundays or statutory holidays, a minimum of four (4) hours' travel time shall be allowed. If travel exceeds four (4) hours, eight (8) hours at straight time shall be paid in each twenty-four (24) hours.
Weekends. Weekend scheduling will be done in accordance with current practice. Weekend premium will be based on a majority of hours worked over the weekend period (e.g. – a nurse who works a twenty-four (24) hour shift beginning at 7:00am on Friday will receive no weekend premium. A nurse who works a twenty-four (24) hour shift beginning at 7:00am on Saturday or Sunday morning will receive weekend premium for twenty-four (24) hours).
