    Putting out a litmus test on mandated lunches being crammed down our throats. Would love to hear any/all stories concerning lunches especially ones claiming disciplinary action including any panel stories if they exist. I am hearing rumors and am trying to differentiate between fact and fiction. No lunch taken for years here. Trying to keep it that way. Thanks in Advance.:-)

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

    Take your lunch when contractually obligated. Keep job. End of story.

    I can't figure out why people will openly give up the best part of the day. I'd love to be able to escape from UPS everyday for an hour.

    Thanks regulars. On a fact finding mission not necessarily interested in opinions and U know what they say about opinions anyway.

    Honestly an hour is a bit much and that truck doesn't empty itself any while you're on break.
     
  7. I take a half hour, that's enough for me.

    The only fact that matters are what the words in your locals contract book say

    Agreed Slave. I would be fine with a 1/2 hour too if everyone was on board.

    To be completely honest. They started forcing mandatory lunches here about 4 months ago. We have had plenty of people written up for it. We only get a 30 min lunch though.

    It says I'm allowed to not required to.

    Sounds fair to me 542. Any disciplinary action beyond the warning letters.

    No only because our shop stewards told everyone that the company is requiring you to take a lunch. Our BA also alerted everyone to the fact that the company is within there rights to do so. The contract doesn't say they can't. It's pretty much just guarantees you a lunch if they ever say you can't take one.
