Openreach: Meal Break Travel to BT Buildings
18 November 2010
Since the introduction of iLM, the CWU has argued that members should be entitled to travel in company time so that they can get the full 40 minute break.
An agreement has been reached with Openreach that allows for up to 10 minutes each way to the nearest BT building. In the majority of cases this will be within the ellipse. Where the nearest building is not in the ellipse, members must make prior arrangements with their manager and inform the Control.
It is accepted that, in rural and remote areas, the time to travel to and from the nearest building may be more than 10 minutes each way. In these circumstances prior local arrangement can be made.
