Excerpt from Memoranda of Understandings in Connection With the Memorandum of the Director General, Dated November 15, 1919, in Regard to Conditions Under Which Time and One-Half for Overtime Would Be Granted in Freight Service Question 1. Give examples or application Of the combination of service rule as contained in the proposition submitted, as set out in the following combina tions of service between terminals, which heretofore have been recognized as two services or for which special allowance has been paid. Answer. In View of the introduction of time and one-half for overtime in freight service it is felt that Article V (c) of Supplement no. 24 will have to be changed. It provides that where engineers and firemen are required to perform a combination Of more than one class of road service they will be paid at the rate and according to the rules governing each class Of service, etc. Under this rule service may consist Of passenger and freight and overtime would be paid after fractions Of a day. It is not the intent to pay time and one-half in freight service prior to 8 hours on runs of 100 miles or less, or prior to the hours deter mined by dividing by 1211; the miles run when in excess Of 100. To preserve Article V (0) would necessitate continuance of pro rata overtime for freight portions of the trip where less than 100 miles were run, and all passenger overtime be paid at pro rata rates. Rather than have such a complicated con dition it is believed that the rule should be changed to provide that where two or more classes of road service are performed in continuous service the highest rate applicable to any class of service or to the heaviest locomotive used shall apply for the entire service, and the overtime basis applicable to such rates shall be applied. Under such a rule the through or the local freight rate being higher than the passenger rate, they Would be applied according to the class Of freight service performed, and the freight overtime basis would apply.
