  • Shift Differential

    It's contract negotiation time and we are looking to get shift differential. Looking to see what other departments already have in their contract so we have a basis on what to ask for. Thanks!

    OOPPS, my bad. After posting I saw you were only looking for MN agencies. Sorry.

    But come to California. we only have light snow in the mountains and an occasional earthquake.

    From an agency with 7,500 sworn members.

    Night Shift Pay
    a. Employees shall receive night shift pay as set forth below:

    (1) Night shift pay is earned on a day-by-day basis. Employees must work a
    qualifying shift, or be on a paid leave of absence when scheduled to work a
    qualifying shift, to receive compensation.

    (2) Employees shall qualify for a swing shift pay differential of $1.00 per hour when
    four or more hours of the regularly scheduled work shift fall between 1800 and
    0100 hours.

    (3) Employees shall qualify for a graveyard shift differential of $1.50 per hour when
    four or more hours of the regularly scheduled work shift fall between 2300 and
    0600 hours.

    (4) A “regularly scheduled shift” are those regularly assigned work hours established
    by the Department head or his/her designee for the duration of at least one
    monthly period.

          Ours is a percentage of top patrol pay which currently equals out to like 1.30 an hour. Federal is 10% of base pay which like 2.25 to 2.90 an hour...

            There is one south metro agency with a $0.27/hr shift differential, but they mandate that you have to work Dog Watch and that your regular assigned shift must extend beyond 0245hrs. The agency intentionally did it this way to save a few bucks and screw their mid shift officers, who end their shift at 0245. Only the dog watch and night Sgt get shift differential, which totals out to being at most 8 officers in the entire dept who can get it.

            If your agency runs a mid shift or evening power, make sure to negotiate to get those guys in on the differential pay. This ensures that A.) you don't cause the shift bid to get all wonky and cause people to change shifts to chase the money, and B.) you don't create more resentment towards the agency because you have a shift that deserves the pay but doesn't get it just because their shift ends 3 hours earlier (or whatever) than the dog cars. I previously worked at that south metro agency, and I can't tell you how plssed the fvck off we were on midshift.

              and it encompasses mid, mid-power and dog watch shifts.

                  Carver Counties night diff is .85/hr if the majority of your shift occurs after 1500.

                    Shift differential? What's that? Oh, right. It's something that a lot of other MAC departments get, but they won't give to the PD because it's "comparing apples to oranges". That's very convenient for them, but we're apples to apples when it comes to getting the same pay raise percentage as the rest of the MAC departments

                        Well when I was there and we finally got the shift differential, a lot of people were happy that it even happened. I personally was miffed that it was $0.27, because that's pretty much a slap in the face and a middle finger to say "hey, if we could pay you less, we would" mixed with "we think you're dumb enough to think this is enough". Midshift not getting it was twisting the dagger once it was already in.

                          Several contracts ago my guild proposed extra pay for night shift. The city laughed at us, "You guys like working nights."

                            Thanks for all of the replies. We have 4 shifts, our mid is 1600-0230 and our dog shift is 2000-0630, so we need to make sure the mid shift doesn't get left out.

                            There are plenty of studies on how bad nights are for your body and health, so hopefully those arguments help us out. Dog shift used to be highly sought after in my department, but now it's just the new guys who get put on nights.
