At the federal prison if you worked a cell block or dormitory on the day watch you got a 30 minute unpaid lunch break. If some other staff member could be found to relieve you that is...

Then one day the union president (AFGE) without telling anyone about it agreed to the warden's demand that the lunch break be eliminated. Shortly after that the union president got promoted to supervisor and transferred to another prison. Standard operating procedure. The union presidents always got into bed with the administration and rolled over for them on just about everything.

This is why I never joined any union of gov't employees. By law gov't employees are forbidden to engage in any kind of job action. Remember what happened to the Air Traffic Controllers Union? Reagan fired their striking asses and sent the ring leaders to jail. Correctly I might add.....

And so it goes.
