    Not all areas deduct 30 minutes, here they only take out what you put in, most put in 10-15 minutes +paid break.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    I'm aware of that, but if 1 hr lunch was mandatory, like in my center, most rookies would skip it to get home and play on the xbox all night. Stupid sobs dont realize how much money they give to a company that doesnt even thank them for it.
    UPS will never be happy with their profits. Why give time to a company that can never have enough?

    Just curious, did you guys always have an hour lunch?

    We only get 30 min unpaid lunch, 2×10 min paid breaks. I would kill for an hour lunch, and am wondering if theres anyway to go about pushing the local to negotiate for at least the option for 1 hour, next contract..

    Took a 3 hour lunch one time to watch one of those :censored2:ty avengers movies. What's management going to do? Fire me?

    Why do you care about what someone else is doing? No one should be forced to take an hour lunch, so stupid.

    IMO an hour is too long while 30 minutes is not long enough. 45 minutes, which is what we were "forced" to take in my former center, was just right.

    Need more stories like this on here, instead of the fake Rambo stories or drivers pretending to "stick it" to management.

    If EVERYONE took their full lunch, in the middle of the day, there would be more routes. Blows my mind every time i hear 15+ year bid guys say "I take my lunch at the end of the day cuz otherwise i cant deliver all my buisinesses before metro".

    Wtf is wrong with you people!?!?!?!

    Boywondr The truth never changes.

    People that understand the system know that spineless drivers who run run run to get their businesses done but only succeed by skipping their contractually allotted time frame to take their unpaid meal break actually screw other people out of work.

    22.3 and 22.2 employees who only work 7 hrs and '05' are just as weak.

    Evidently we make too much money.

    The formula that the Joe Unions liked to repeat was that for every 8 drivers who took their full lunch between the contractually obligated times the company would have to create 1 new route.

    ...other than their desire to take care of their customers...? Nothing.

    You're nothing but a troll and a scab. Joe unions negotiated your compensation and you spit on their work and dedication.
    You'll probably rot in your grave while the joe unions that had to endure your pompous mouth at work urinate on your headstone.

    I've known and worked with a few scum union janes like you and most of the ups employees disrespected them and their two faced cowardly ways.
    Hopefully your pension goes belly up so that youve got to go find another job and maybe then you may appreciate the hard work of the union joes who worked tirelessly to give punks like you a solid future.
    Ungrateful punk scab.

    I always took my full lunch and break-----granted, I never took them per the CBA. I normally took my meal break from 1545-1630 and my 10 minute break while sitting at my last drop box. I took my meal break later in the day for two reasons: 1. It was a natural break between deliveries/first round of pickups and the second round of pickups. 2. I lived on my delivery route and that was about the time that I was near my condo.

    Ok so if you want more routes tell everyone in your building to slow down. I’m contractually obligated to show “some” lunch, i still average 1 9.5 grievance a week, maybe they’ll add more drivers soon, LOL

    Thats just wishful thinking.
    So, people could be getting their stuff delivered at 3pm everyday, by a lunch skipper, whos cranky, stressed, in a rush to get it all done before metro. OR, they could be getting their delivery earlier in the day, by "union Joe", whos pleasent, helpful, and not a dick, cuz hes not overloaded with work and knows hell be on lunch soon.

    Hmmmm.

    Just had a guy fired for doing that. He did it multiple times.

    My point is, if you dont take an hour, dont show an hour in your board. If i coded 30 mins, but actually took an hour, there would be problems. The company doesnt care about falsifying records if it benefits them.
    Thats why i care.

    Did he watch the same :censored2:ty Avenger movie or was it the whole collection of :censored2:ty Avenger movies?

    You shouldn’t care what someone else is doing, but how many times have you raised your hand for more work when you know you don’t have enough?Probably never, because it benefits you. Human nature.
