think i answered my own question:
CASE datepart(weekday, ShiftDate) 
                      WHEN 1 THEN (CONVERT(varchar(8), DATEADD(day, - 6, ShiftDate), 112)) WHEN 2 THEN (CONVERT(varchar(8), ShiftDate, 112)) WHEN 3 THEN (CONVERT(varchar(8), 
                      DATEADD(day, - 1, ShiftDate), 112)) WHEN 4 THEN (CONVERT(varchar(8), DATEADD(day, - 2, ShiftDate), 112)) WHEN 5 THEN (CONVERT(varchar(8), DATEADD(day, - 3, 
                      ShiftDate), 112)) WHEN 6 THEN (CONVERT(varchar(8), DATEADD(day, - 4, ShiftDate), 112)) WHEN 7 THEN (CONVERT(varchar(8), DATEADD(day, - 5, ShiftDate), 112)) 
                      END AS Starting_Weekday

Below is a much easier way to get the correct date, including stripping the time (if needed).

You can add a CROSS APPLY to assign an alias to that name you can use through the query:

SELECT
    CONVERT(varchar(8), Monday_Date, 112) AS Monday_Date,
    SUM(...)
FROM dbo.table_name
CROSS APPLY (
    SELECT DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, ShiftDate), 0) AS ShiftDate_Time_Stripped
) AS assign_alias_names1
CROSS APPLY (
    SELECT DATEADD(DAY, -DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, ShiftDate_Time_Stripped) % 7, ShiftDate_Time_Stripped) AS Monday_Date
) AS assign_alias_names2
GROUP BY Monday_Date
ORDER BY Monday_Date
