So as usual the company decided to start making 1hr lunch mandatory even tho they didn’t enforce it all of peak. I’m a 22.3 (PL/Air) and they are not making me or the other 3 22.3’s take a 1hr lunch bc if it’s between the 4th & 5th hr that’s during Pre load when we’re super busy & already short handed so being an inconvenience to the company they won’t let us even when I asked to take my lunch since they are enforcing it. Can the company make me work every lunch of mine but then Force others?

Any tips on what can be done?

Work as directed and file a grievance. Also call your BA and inform them that you are being denied a lunch.

What is your question? Do you want an unpaid lunch? Or your coworkers are forced to take one.

Nope too bad. Doesn’t work like that. Take it between the third and fifth hour and if that screws up their operation oh well. Your lunch isn’t when it’s convenient for them.

So my coworkers all the regular drivers are being forced to take a lunch. Since the company just randomly did this I decided since they are not forcing me to take a lunch I want to take a lunch bc I know it will hurt managements numbers which is why I’m not forced to take one. Any reason I could not be allowed to take a lunch?

Apparently contractually they can force us to work through our lunch but we get a big paid 20 min break. The union allowing more 1 sided deals like letting drivers work 6 days a week. I saw the most action out of the union during the election last year where most on the ballots never introduced themselves but when we need them to hear our concerns they’re no where to be found

As a 22.3, do you get a lunch?
If so,
Why the :censored2: haven't you been taking it!?

No it’s contractual

Because it’s an inconvenient time in the sort when it’s time for him to take it being as it’s a time when they are getting hit. And instead of demanding his union mandated lunch, and filing if they still refused, he chose to come here and ask us instead of a union steward who could help him directly. Did I miss anything?

What supplement are you? Mine has this exact language so don’t go bashing the union, get to a meeting and start reading your contract. You want a quick fix and sometimes things take time.


From Metro Philly Supplement:

The Employer shall have the right to require employees to take a meal period of one (1) hour. The Employer may direct any employ- ee to work all or part of his/her one (1) hour meal period, in which event the employee shall receive twenty (20) minutes to eat on Em- ployer’s time and the employee may not be dismissed one (1) hour early but must be worked to the employee’s regular quitting time, producing a minimum of one (1) hour of overtime pay.


If they force you to skip here you get one hour of OT for the price of 40 mins.

I already asked a steward. Apparently they can force us to work through lunch but have to pay us an 1hr of OT which I already get everyday regardless on top of all the other overtime but no lunch.
Funny how the company didn’t force lunch during the pandemic, during peak season but now randomly enforce it & im still not allowed a lunch bc it’s inconvenient. Contractually they can do it.
