I know this point has been discussed here before. But with all the layoff talk, and it does look like it will happen. It is more important now than ever that each of you take your required meal period. Be it 30 min. or an 60 min.whatever your supplement requires. And at the appropriate time BEFORE the 8th hour.Not at the end of your day. This should be the way it's done everyday but I know that it is not. The company is cutting routes and drivers, expecting everyone to do more work. There is no problem with the company striving to be more efficient. The problem arises when people are working off the clock ( skipping lunch) to achieve the new goal. This dysfunctional new mandate can also aided by not taken your meal at specified time. I know there are a million reasons that you feel you have to skip your meal. It's fill in the blank______( hot,cold,dark,late,ballgame,play,school function,etc.) Or to take your meal after you finish. I can't take my meal on time because I will _____ ( miss business,have too much to do after pickups,miss pickups,be to bulky,etc.) These obstacles are to be corrected by management, not by you the driver. You should be able to take your full meal at the appropriate time and finish all the work you have been given safely. No one ever told you when you were hired that you would be working 8-5. Accept your responsibility to work safely and be paid for all the time you work. No matter how long or late it may be.Or if you are interested in running all day and working off the clock and being paid that way, by the package, mile, and stop FEDEX Ground is always in need of "independent contractors". Do it the right way who knows the job you save may be your own.
