Bridgewater, Police, Call-in, Overtime, Interpretation, Collective Agreement


The Grievors are four members of the Bridgewater Police Department who allege that the Employer failed to pay them call-in pay, or grant equivalent time off, for starting work three quarters of an hour in advance of their regular start time. They put in for four hours pay at time- and-one-half, saying that they had been called out under the provisions of the Collective Agreement. The Employer did not agree that this was a call-out and paid them one hour at time-and -one-half in recognition of the overtime.
