How common (or uncommon) is it for an employer to ask for employees to work extra, uncompensated time?

I work for a defense engineering firm. My workplace pays overtime to it's salary employees. Recently, however, they've moved to asking us to attend some meetings 'on our own time,' meaning uncompensated. This is really irritating me, so I want to get an outside perspective as to how common it is for an employer to do this, (and in what specific fields of employment.)
