    We were told today that no longer can we take lunch and breaks together by our operations manager, just the other day the terminal manager told us: "With this new contract, the culture of the company will not change"....yeah....right!

    So what!!! You should understand and thank them for trying to work with you all of those years. How is this associated with company culture in any way?

    There is no contract language on this matter that I am aware of and past practice should stand if your union is willing to back you up. Breaks have been documented for years now and they should have no trouble obtaining the company's records on it. For them to suddenly change this constitutes an unfair labor practice if the issue was not agreed upon during negotiations. The key is whether or not your union will back you up. Those fat cats get all the breaks they want whenever they want and really don't care if you can't combine yours anymore.

    Is that all you have to offer? I can answer that for you and the answer is...YES! When was the last time you actually added anything of substance to a discussion?

    Whatever go40. I Find ourselves lucky we even get breaks with all the changes that are happening in our job market. If you haven't noticed our union is done with freight.

    No, because you make a comment on something you know very little about & is not willing to learn.....

    What's wrong with respecting an authoritive figure being a policeman, boss, pastor, military ????? It's disrespectful. Everytime a supervisor asks for something out of someone we automatically go in tear mode. I don't get it

    One has been filed.
    7% cut in pay, loss of vacation time, and 33% cut in breaks...and before the ink is dry, an established practice is trashed?

    It sounds like you would fit in great at Old Dominion.

    Look at it this way, instead of one long nap, now you get three short naps. Now get back to work
