Is being on call 24/7, 365 days a reasonable expectation from my employer?

Am I being unreasonable for asking for compensation? I work in a tech related role and the company I work for has access to me 24/7, 365 days a year… When I’ve addressed this with management I’m told it’s expected in the role but when reviewing my workplace agreement there’s no mention of on call.

My contract has a line saying ‘you’re expected to work reasonable overtime from time to time’ but I don’t think being on call all day everyday is reasonable.

I get paged when I’m on annual leave as one example.

There’s a whole lot more but this is my major issue with my current employer at present…

Any thoughts / advice would be appreciated.
