Msg ID: 2586352 HAA Working 84 hour hitch +0/-2     
Author:Over 40 hours in a week
8/6/2019 9:18:45 PM

What States require employers to pay overtime on hours worked over 40 in a workweek. How does this affect the 84 hour hitch that most HAA pilots work.

Do States look the other way if pilots agree to work 84 hours (7 x 12 shifts) in a row so as to get 7 days off.

What happens if a company has not been paying OT in a State where OT should have been paid over 40 hours. Can the employee claim back pay? If so how would they go about getting paid without having a target on thier back?

And other realities.

You need to talk to a labor attorney.

does so only because the want to, not because anybody Toledo them the had to.  RLA preemptions exist over state and local laws.   Employees have right to organize if the don’t like terms of employment

It's because aviation is technically under the DOT which has different regulations about OT hours and pay which supersedes state laws.

Can’t remember the exact year prior to 06.  California AMC pilots wanted over time  past 40 hrs

Management made an 8 hour schedule.  The pilots gave up the requests

As Clint said, "Go ahead, make my day".

With todays computers, we can adjust your hourly rate to compensate and the end result will be the same cost to us.

Be careful where you go with this. Some of us like our cushy jobs making $100k+/sleeping 42 of those regular 84 hour pay periods.

BTW, my OT rate is $1.25/min.

Calc that one my friend.

These HAA guys only think they are working half a year even when working a normal 40 hour work week you work 2080 hous  a year and they are working 2184 hours a year, so thats 184 hours more. They may sleep part of it but they are still at work.

That's based on 12 hour shifts, which with turnover time is more like 12.5

Not only that but, if you fly till your 14th hour, you might not be free from all work restraint for another 15 to 45 minutes.

And, theoretically, every day can be a 14 hour or more duty day.

Geez, HAA pilots do nothing but whine. When you run out of things to whine about, you cycle back through buried topics and re-whine all over again. This must be your first hitch on an 84. If you don't like it, there's always the alternative... RTP. Then you can whine about only getting paid once the door is shut. 

My condolences to your med crews.

That’s not the right math. Really your 12 hour shift includes 30 minute lunch unpaid period so payroll sees your 12 hour shift as 11.5 hours. (Not saying that’s fair since it’s not like you can go get a pizza or take a walk or leave your desk like a regular office worker at some 30 minute part of your day...just saying how it’s calculated by law requiring you to get a lunch break over x hours worked). 7 x 11.5 = 80.5. Where I work, payroll does 6 x 11.5 and then the last shift of your 7 is only on the books as 11 paid hours. Basically yes they short us 30 minutes the last day, an hour a month we are losing or working for free technically. Again just explaining the math, not saying it’s right. But considering you likely sleep (or sit home playing video games on call as a wrench monkey) for at least 30 minutes in a week and get paid for it, be careful how much complaining you do.
