    I am a brand new steward. If I notice that the ten minute break isn't given within 3 hours of hub start time how do I handle it? One single grievance on every one's behalf? What results can come out of that grievance?

    How far off? Are members complaining?
    Might not be worth your time.

    Consider discussing the problem with the sup first.

    If it's a legit grievance, and this applies to any situation, make sure the member you're representing wants to file. You're there to represent them, but not to change the world for them. Make sure you're on the same page.

    Nothing worse than trying to convince members to stand up for themselves.

    I had this problem when I was the PT steward on our preload. They tried getting us to take our break at the very end of the sort instead of in the middle of the sort so I threatened to grieve it and it never happened again.

    I would talk to the preload sup or center manager and mention that the point of a break near the middle of the sort is for safety reasons to give people's bodies a rest.

    Atta boy.

    Now, begins your training.

    Right off the bat;

    Don't immerse your time and thoughts on what might happen.

    When a situation arises, and you're not sure how to handle it....

    Network with other Stewards and your Local.

    Break is to be taken after the 1st and completed before the 3rd hour.if not speak with ur manager at that moment,if not corrected immediately file and ask for all effected employees to be paid plus ten minutes since break was not given at the cba time frame.
