    I volunteered to work today, finished deliveries and now waiting to pick up ups store at 12. I am being told to take lunch until 12. I don't have to take lunch, correct?

    Correct. I'd ask them if they plan on paying you 8? If not, lunch is dependent on supplemental language and hours of service from federal motor carriers

    Tell them you can only take your breaks.

    Ask them, "what work is next?" Hell I've driven back to the center to wash cars before a pick up.
    Theyre gonna pay you to sit or work. Let them decide

    You volunteered. Let them show their appreciation by paying you for all the time you work today.

    Unless something has changed, saturday work is part-time work, and pt work includes 10 minute paid break but no unpaid lunch.

    What do you mean by "no unpaid lunch". Do I get a paid lunch?

    For a pt work day you are entitled to a 10 minute paid break only.

    I get kinda hungry after awhile.

    Bring a snack. How long did you expect to work, anyway? Sat work is usually 4 hours or less.

    If you do put in an 8 hr day, then take your unpaid lunch same as during the week.

    Thanks for that. So take my half hour breakfast break on the clock and half hour lunch off the clock. Works for me.

    no such thing as a 30 minute paid break. Why do you need an hour break on a 4 hour shift?

    Here the saturday work is generally covered by part time air drivers, however, from time to time they don't have three available so they need one of us full time drivers to work. When they do, it's eight hours guarantee unless you agree to go home early for less. And all time and a half.

    I used to run Saturday Air every once in a while----it was hours worked at straight time, which did work out to time and a half as I already had my 40 hours.

    are you saying you don't get OT until over 40 hours

    Full time should be OT because of 6th day I would think. PT Air drivers receive OT only after 40 hrs on Sat. Article 40 (k)

    When I do pick ups in the afternoon. Turns into a 9 hour day.

    You have Saturday pick ups?

    We have two Saturday pickups--both are at hospitals and are NDA only.

    We have 15 pick up stops. Most are UPS stores. No ground.
