    Any chance the Union and UPS would agree on reducing the hour lunch break to 30 minutes? I take my hour lunch everyday ( I learned a long time ago to never work for free), but it is torture.

    No..... You would not be getting off any earlier. Management would add 20 more stops to your planned day.

    I would love it. I wonder how runner-gunners would make up the 30 minutes?
  5. I guess it's nice to only have to take a half hour lunch. Did you ever think about filing a grievance or putting in a proposal ant a contract proposal meeting.

    We get to chose here half or full. Most guys who chose half worked later, well the dishonest ones anyways. I understand wanting to be home earlier.

    In our supplement that was passed by hoffa we have the option to take a 30 min lunch provided that management agrees to it.

    I take a 30 minute nap at lunch, if they bust down the hour I'd have to choose eat or sleep!! No thank you I'll choose both cause this is AMERICA!

    We are already at half hour required, full hour optional. As it should be.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I wish ours was 30 mandatory and 30 optional. I can hardly see how it's torture though.

    We are required to take our 45 minute lunch. I agree with the OP that having to sit for an hour would be "torture" and would also prefer a 30 minute lunch.

    Future, how is it possible for the OP to derail a thread that he started and in which he made the first post?

    PC drivers complain about how work is piled on especially through numbers manipulation and now you want to give them more time to do so?

    You guys would be popular in prison showers.

    Take 30 for lunch, then 30 at the driving range or putting green. Visit one of your favorite customers and hang-out.

    No way I am giving up my hour lunch. I relax and listen to Howard Stern and surf the internet.

    I bring my tablet to work, park at a Cheeseburger N Paradise, bum their WiFi. I would much rather get home a half hour earlier.
