    I believe I've seen in past posts someone mentioning a 3rd break after 10/12 hrs. Anyone know if this is true???

    There has always been a 20 min break after 10 hrs. It is unpaid.

    Where you get this? It certainly ain't here and not in Master Contract.

    And it's a 10 minute paid break after 10 hours here in Norcal.

    In New England it's a 20 minute bonus after 10 hours. It's not a break...it's a 20 minute time bonus added to your total for going over 10. It was to take place of forcing someone to sit out there even longer to get the added break in.

    Its the state law in California that you receive a third 10 min break paid after being on the clock for more then 10 hours - so unless you work in California you are out of luck

    Huh?

    Out of luck unless he's in CA? Seems like ours is better as 20 minutes of free time is given to us.

    This is in the upstate NY supplement.

    This varies by supplement. In the New England Supplement, an employee gets a 20 minute time bonus paid at the overtime rate if they work 10 hours. We used to get a paid 20 minute break after 10 hrs but that was changed in the 90's. We still get the 20 minutes pay, we just don't have to actually take the actual break any more.:)
