    Im in the southern Region and we don't have a 10 min paid break as far as i can tell, Who here has it in your supplement and what does the Verbiage say? How can we get it into the next contract??

    In the area cover under the New England supplement we get 2 paid 10 min breaks.

    ARTICLE 64 - BREAK PERIOD There will be two (2) ten (10) minute break periods each workday, ten (10) minutes in the A.M. between the second (2nd) and third (3rd) hours and ten (10) minutes in the P.M. between the sixth (6th) and seventh (7th) hours. Part-time employees working on a shift greater than six (6.0) hours or area practice will be eligible for a ten (10) minute break.

    Yes, New England = two paid 10 min breaks per 8 hrs. State labor laws states a 10 min break every 4 hrs.

    Local 705/Chicago area: 10 minute paid break for all (part & full time) employees. Those who have been (full time) long enough, are 'grandfathered' in with 2 paid breaks.

    People in the South move so slow they don't need a break.
  8. We get one 10-minute paid break. It's just another thing besides lunch that the runners regularly skip.

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

    The southern sounds like one :censored2:ty supplement. Yet the southerners are the reason this last contract passed. Everyone else voted it down.

    Vote no. That's how you get what you want.

    That and go to contract meetings and tell them what you want.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    Yep. I'm in the southern and these ignorant azzes would work for free. Come to think of it, we have some 35 yr drivers who MIGHT take 15 minutes lunch and show an hour.

    Are these the same southerners who hate the unions even though a union could pull many of these people out of poverty, give them healthcare and other things that could improve their lives? I guess its just coincidence that the poorest states in the union, mississippi, alabama, etc are the states with rtw, and some of the poorest in the nation...wake the hell up people. I guess as long as you keep feeding them a diet of guns they won't give a :censored2: anyway...

    Strange, the paid break is the one break you can bet on the runners taking in my center. Unpaid is usually a 50/50.

    Our guys get a 20 min paid break.

    By the way, in your little black book, Southern Region (page 210):
    Article 49, Section 3 Part-time relief periods:

    "Part-time employees will be guaranteed ten (10) minutes relief period each work shift. The relief period may not start before the end of the first (1st) hour and must be completed before the end of the third (3rd) hour."
