No pay has been mentioned. The call hours are to be covered initially by one person .
The tasks are potentially take care of anything occurring during those hours including stat specimens. The primary concern of management is that a refrigerator or the room temperature or humidity will go out of range when staff are not on site.  There is a 24 hour monitor for environmental stuff that will call to the person's cell phone, and anything else that occurs when no one is scheduled in the area will result in a cell call.

> Please advise of the number of hours that your histology staff are scheduled to take on-call in addition to their 40 scheduled hours ( FT staff/hourly) ? 
> If you have a maximum # of on call hours by your lab or HR policies, that would be most helpful.
> The proposal is to begin a usual 40 worked hours scheduled in the lab and then ~ 15 hours overnight on call for each weekday,( M-F),  and potentially 8 hours or more each weekend day. I think this proposal is unreasonable, and 75 hours + 16 hours potential on call/week ( 91 hours on call?). 
> I would appreciate your thoughts , comments? I hope to derail this with something more reasonable
