Calculating Meal Penalties


While members are strongly encouraged to read and understand the various contracts under which we operate it can still be confusing to understand when you are and are not eligible to receive meal penalties, and what to do when a production calls for “grace”. To help make things easier for our members we have created a flowchart that takes all of the factors into consideration for those working under the Area Standards Agreement.

If after using this flowchart you are still uncertain of your hiring status please contact the office and ask to speak to the Business Agent or a Field Representative.
