Alleged Hot Metal Process Agreement

It has come to the attention of the Union that false facts are being provided to members of 5890. They are being told that there is an agreement between the Union and the Company that if there is hot metal still in process when members shifts end without relief (ex. Layoff) that they are required to work overtime to process left over hot metal.

There is not an agreement of any kind regarding Hot Metal Process. Under Article 9.01 all overtime is voluntary. You do not have to stay after your scheduled shift to finish melting or casting steel. You are not required to tell anyone you do not have relief. You may clock out at 6:00 AM or 6:00 PM when your shift ends without notifying anyone that you are leaving.

If your supervisor tries to convince you to stay past your shift on overtime because of this alleged agreement he is either misinformed or outright lying.
