Question: We’re on call all the time as part of a maintenance team. Recently, a manager informed us we are no longer allowed to take breaks for lunch or other reasons. Previously, we had 30 minutes for lunch and two 15-minute breaks. Now if we take them, we’re told we have to stay an extra hour. I’m reaching out to my union representative, but wanted to know: Can companies cancel breaks and lunch whenever they want?
