your statutory break has to be somewhere in the middle of the shift, being part time, this will more than likely be your 10 minute break. In our office our 20 minutes non statutory break is always taken at the end which has been agreed locally.

We all- well nearly all !- know the procedure. It would appear that managers do not know or wish to implement the procedures for an over running duty time. They feel comfortable, righteous and entitled to treat people like this ( almost said like a slave there, mmmm, err only joking ). With wage negotiations, pensions etc receiving our unions main priority, why do they allow this basic everyday treatment of members go unchallenged, and get it sorted once and for all.
I cannot understand our CWU leaders apparent non interest of this problem. They profess an interest in our dignity and respect at work - as very union should be as a priority matter- but appear flippant and indifferent to the abuse and intimidation of members by RM management, DAILY not an occasionally isolated issue by any means.!
It is blatant intimidation, bullying and harassment, simple. What happens to these characters ? Nothing, ziltch.
Do they change their attitude ? NO. Do they get challenged by superiors or Union ? NO.
So the cycle continues and staff are subject to this every day. I know I rant on about this, plenty posters state in great detail the treatment they receive from DOMs about this. Where in any other job do employers try to fit a square peg into a round hole ? It's a simple fact that posties do have a right NOT to work overtime if they do not wish to or go over their contracted hours against their wishes.
If time is the factor due to the prep work prior to delivery not being done any sane person will realise any remaining time to do the delivery aspect of a duty is reduced = less mail can be delivered within duty time.
