    At the center where I work the management likes to call break extremely late when all but around 5 pt employees are left and literally the only thing left after break is to close the trailer doors. I have heard some people in my hub say that we are entitled to a break between the first and third hour of the shift and if so I want to file a grievance. However, I have searched and I can't find where it says that. Can somebody please give me more information about what I can do?
    Thank you

    Check the supplement for your region.

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

    I’m not 100% but I think all our supplement says is it can’t be called in the first hour.

    You need to file a grievance.

    Unless there is some sort of unforeseen circumstance (emergency conditions)

    they shouldn't be waiting until the end of the day to call break.


    "All part-time employees shall be given a paid break of ten (10) minutes per shift
    or part-time operation. Breaks shall not be scheduled prior to one (1) hour of
    work being performed."

    They try this at our center on mondays....theyll send people home without break. But our steward caught on started fighting them on it.

    They tried that :censored2: for a few days here years ago. They would tell us to take our break right before we clock out. Half of the people would just leave because they were ready to GTFO. Our BA threw a :censored2: fit and it never happened again.

    Doesnt contract say break after 2 to 3 hours work? Ir something.
    But it doesn't say that a sup has to send you on break? Like you can pick ur break yourself, is that a thing?
