    Mondays are usually light and trailers already there so we take break at the end of the day. Heard a few people grumbling about this, this AM. Seems like its another management ploy to save some pennies, since a few sorters clock out and go home with out staying for break. Granted its not managements fault for doing this, if some dude in the back unloading trailers does not want paid for 10 minutes and just wants to go be it.

    Any other small hubs take break at the end of the day, on Mondays?

    I think there is contract language to prohibit the practice.

    No. I usually take my break last hour on Mondays.

    Southern supplement says p/t 10 minute break has to be before the end of the 3rd hour and not before the end of the 1st hour.

    Old school trick; this is from the classic Management playbook. During the Great Recession when labor was abundant, Management tried to end breaks all together, insisting that since the sort lasted for less than 3 hours, we weren't entitled to one. A bunch of us grieved it, and we were then offered an opportunity to take a break at the end of our shift. This went on for a few years... some of my early postings on here were ranting about it.

    The language just says the break can't be offered in the first hour IIRC.

    In the southern breaks have to start no earlier than 1 hour after clock-in and finish no later than 3 hrs after clock-in for part-timers.
