“Flexible” meal break change

The National government has introduced legislation to make meal and rest breaks more flexible, amending Labour legislation which set aside specific breaks and time for breastfeeding. This move has alarmed union members across the country.

Council of Trade Unions’ President Helen Kelly said, “These changes remove the absolutely fundamental right to minimum breaks at reasonably spaced periods during a working day. The changes proposed will enable employers to determine whether or not a worker should have a break and then how long and when it should occur.”
