Hello folks. Several problems in my facility has been surfacing as of late. This facility is located at DFW Airport. Firstly, it should be noted this shipping facility is over 1,000,000 sq feet in size, probably not the largest UPS sort but by no means a small one. Upon completing an instruction to go work another area a stop was made to use the restroom. Supervisor informed that too much time was spent between the two work areas. It was explained that a short break had to be taken for restroom use. The supervisor then stated that I was followed while being mapped which route was taken in the building. Why ask about which way I went if I was followed? Problem beings with accountability. The clock in badges were confiscated this last week leaving no means to electronically swipe in and out each work area. Of course this can lead to speculation along with lack of accountability when registering times worked. Yes there are sign in sheets but that electronic time clock card is a man's best friend for both employee and supervisor up to senior management. The issue with restroom break borders on harassment. I'm really on the fence on rather an OSHA complaint should be submitted should this become a larger problem down the road. Since I by no means 'Excessively' use the restroom, it should be no surprise no problems has occurred with UPS during almost 6 years working there, .... until now. The labor contract states employees gets a 10 minute rest break not to commence during 1st hour of the shift and not later than 3rd hour. The facility I work does not normally adhere to the rest breaks on part of both employee and management alike. When speaking to the supervisor, several suggestions were made: 1. Electronic time clock badges: Either have them on the persons working or just work in one area. Moving around the building without the badges on each persons is problematic at best. Registering the badge to each area removes any speculation on how long it took for someone to move from one area to another. 2. Restroom use.... well duh. Nothing to say here. 3. Supervisor was informed no policies were violated on my part. A short break which could typically consist of using the toilet, refilling the water jug, and/or short rest stop (not to exceed 10 min) falls under the labor contract for 3.5 hour sorts regarding relief periods. Now asking for opinions. Am I reasonable to ask that I work in just one area without a time card on hand? Of course the option of having a time card to register at the new work area is always there too. How exactly should the issue with occasional use of toilet facilities be handled? In extreme cases, OSHA should be involved. For now, this seems very isolated while yet points to what can be an alarming trend in my facility. Do all sort / preload employees working 3.5 hour sorts get a 10 minute relief period? Reason for asking is there are many contracts covering different regions. The one I was citing was for Southern Region and not sure if that covers the Red River district. Well, thanks for reading and have a good day.
