Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about lunch room clean up:
As a union employee, should I be forced into lunchroom clean up even though I do not use the facilities?
Signed, Not Fair
Dear Not Fair:
Yes, it’s not fair to be assigned to clean it up if you don’t dirty it up. That’s assuming that clean up is extra work during the break or lunch hour. Your job assignment as a union member is determined by your contract. Right? If your contract permits supervisors to assign such duties as clean up as she/he decides, then you are expected to comply.
