Default 12 hour shift workers, how many breaks do you get.

We get one half hour, plus two twenty minutes.

Good or stingy.

Working Time Regs state .....that if you're an adult worker (that is, over 18), you'll normally have the right to a 20 minute rest break if you're expected to work for more than six hours at a stretch.

At my old place, when doing 12 hour ****s, we would work from 6pm-9.40pm, have 20 mins, then work from 10pm to 2.30am, have 30 mins, then work through to 6am. Pretty much the bare minimum.

Good grief, you really are quite hard done by. I didn't realise how cushy I had it. Albeit, not nights, but 8 hour shift, and I get 1 hour unpaid lunch and 2 15 minute breaks.

Never realised I had it so cushy. 7-7 nights or days and we get 1.5hrs to take when we want (start, middle or end or split up into bits) and we can have a wander off around the place at any time if we feel a bit frazzled (vanishing for over twenty minutes raises eyebrows though).

Oh and we can pop up the petrol station or 24hr Tesco any time for bits and bobs as long as we get a decent packet of biscuits for the team.

When I was 12hr shifts, we got 2 x 10min breaks. 10pm and 2pm, if you wanted a lunch break you had to work on the time at the end of your shift that you took for the lunch break.

The breaks where the only time the smokers got their nicotine fix. The phones were a **** take aswell, no incoming or out going calls were allowed. All mobiles had to be switched off and no reading material allowed to be taken in, like newspapers or mags. Also had to work under cctv getting recorded to catch anyone slacking off.

Im so happy that place went down the pan.

2x 12 hr days,2x 12 hr nights then 4 off.
Breaks vary,usually very easy,nights are better.
2 x 1 hour lunch breaks,then in our control room either surfing or watching dvd's,just watched Bangkok dangerous now on Casino Royale.
One night we watched 3 Pink Panther dvd's,another the whole series of Rising Damp..
Smokers get breaks when they "need" them.
And yes we still moan......sometimes we have to work but the minimum is the 2 x 1 hour breaks
