A friendly reminder that with spring on the way, daylight savings time begins on Sunday, March 10, 2024.

Article 1606 of the Collective Agreement states:

“Overtime worked as a result of the changeover from Daylight Savings Time to Central Standard Time shall be deemed to be authorized overtime. The changeover from Central Standard Time to Daylight Savings Time will be considered as full hours worked for that shift.”

In other words, if you work one hour less this Sunday night you will still be paid for a full shift.

Visit our Collective Agreement page on our website for more information. 

For any questions regarding this Article, please contact your Labour Relations Officer.

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety has an article on how to spring forward safely when it comes to daylight savings time.
