It is all about seniority. IF one wants an OT shift, they sign a sheet the day before, and if available it gets assigned. You change your mind, you are penalized. You can't offer someone an extra shift and ignore the seniority list. It stays organized and fair.
Of course it would happen with a union -- I have seen it. There also has to be a penalty built into the contract.

But it was management decisions that put that overly tired person in that position in the first place.
If a limited number of people were being forced to work overtime on a consistent basis, I would agree with you, but that does not appear to be the case in this circumstance. Employees' need for overtime runs the spectrum from not wanting a minute of overtime, to wanting all of the overtime that they can possibly get.

Yes, in the contract I have, there is a penalty.
