Voluntary vs Mandatory Overtime
specific to St. Boniface Worksite 5
Information provided herein is specific to St. Boniface Nurses Worksite 5. Please contact the Worksite 5 office with any questions or concerns, or when an issue first arises.
Do understand the difference between Voluntary vs Mandatory Overtime
- If overtime is offered and you say yes… that is voluntary.
- If the manager (representative) pleads, please, please, please stay and you say yes… that is voluntary.
- If the manager (representative) says, one of you must stay…and one of you does…that is voluntary.
If you say no when overtime is offered and you clearly state that you are leaving at the end of your shift and the manager representative then tells you you must stay that is mandatory overtime. Even if you are able to negotiate this down to a shorter period of time… it is still mandatory overtime.
