Article 8.04 Paid rest periods shall be 20 uninterrupted minutes. But, if you choose to combine your two 20 minute breaks (with a manager’s approval), instead of 40 minutes, the break shall be 35 minutes. This is because you are only traveling to and from your break once. We do not recommend you combining your breaks and losing 5 minutes of paid break.
If you are in a position and have access to Kronos, Do not edit yourself whatsoever! There used to be a time when supervisors were allowed to edit themselves when doing editing on Kronos. But not anymore. We have seen a few long term employees get terminated recently for editing themselves into Kronos.
Article 9.06 now reads that a “day shift” is any shift that ends by 6:00 p.m.
Article 9.12 reads that A and B employees shall not have their guaranteed hours scheduled in more than 5 days in a row in any combinations of shifts.
If your manager is going to change your posted schedule, he or she must give you 24 hours VERBAL notice. This does not include texting, e-mail, changing the schedule themselves without telling you or leaving a message on your phone.
