For every four hours on call, one hour of straight time pay. The expectation is you can grab your gear and go. Members working up north where they’re basically on call all the time outside of work hours make a ton of money. But your work is your life.We called it Standby Pay. But, I guess it's the same thing. If you don't mind me asking, how much is on call / standby pay?
We received three (3) hours pay at regular straight time hourly rate for each twenty-four (24) hour period within which you were assigned to stand by.
There’s a lesser rate of 1 in 8 where you basically stay in the area and on reasonably short notice can return to where your stuff is, gear up, and go.
I suspect if dog guys are on call, it’ll be the first, higher rate.
