That's fair. Is there a penalty if you get called the night before and told to show up 2 hours early and you say no you can't?It depends on your job. My work starts at 7am, some parts of where I work start as early as 5am. We also work shift work which is something most of the CAF doesn’t do particularly often. We do get called in occasionally if there is a big enough job, and it can potentially be late at night.
I don't know much about unions or collective bargaining but I know there's hell to pay when DND civilian employers are kept past 1600hrs.
If you're unionized I can't imagine there is a credible threat you'll be fired for refusing to be called in early.
I'm open to being wrong in my assumption.Your cigarette butts one is a odd one to pick, I get told to clean up after others which includes garbage all the time. Civilian employers can also force multiple jobs on you, especially higher ranked ones without the pay. If you say no you can potentially be fired.
Again from my small knowledge of civilian jobs I find it hard to imagine workers being told to go clean up garbage or cigarette butts or risk some kind of punishment.
Likewise for having additional jobs dumped on you or working at the next pay incentive without being compensated. I can see an AS-1 covering off for an AS-4 for a short period of time. 6 months or a year? Not so much.
Maybe the difference between unionized and non-unionized is being lost on me.
