Submission + - Union Wants Overtime for Blackberry Use (zdnet.com.au)

coljac writes: A union in Canada, where the Blackberry orginated, has called for Blackberry use to count as overtime. "We have old clauses in our collective agreement that cover standby pay, but these clauses have to be updated because these devices have changed the definition of work and being called after-hours," said Ed Cashman, regional vice president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). The Canadian Government has indicated it is willing to talk about the issue, but some have warned that winning such a claim would "legitimize" Blackberry use at home: "How can you compensate someone for their divorce, the fact that their kids hate them or don't know them?"
