I'm a PT loader. Had some interesting things happen to my belt this week. On Monday, when break was called we were told by the PT sup and cover sup they couldn't get the belt to stop and to "work through PCM" so we continued loading and by the time we stopped, we were 5 minutes into break. Break was not extended and we went back to work as if we had gone on break when it was originally called. Friday, the same thing happens. Only they didn't tell us any story the sup just said "We're working through the first few minutes, guys." And sure enough, I kept an eye on my watch and break was only 6 minutes long. No break was given on Thursday because we worked all the way through it. Employees who asked for one received one on an individual basis. What gives? If this continues, can I file a grievance? It doesn't seem like a big deal but when you work 5-6 hours with a 10 minute break, you want those 10 minutes. The old PT sup, who is well liked, has just been replaced by a noobie so I think next time I'm told we're working through PCM my answer may be "No I'm not."
