Customer Question

Contractor - august 2011 - nov 2013, ltd company since sept 2013.
Production supervisors start enforcing 10 minute rule for tea breaks in canteen.
NOT a production line - individual efforts
" Some of you have been taking liberties".
Not always possible to get a breakfast get a coffee pay eat & finish in 10 mins, 15 mins ..yes.
Conversation with Production supervisors Not demanding 15 mins at all just saying 10 is not realistic. Several conversations with a particular Production supervisor actually saying this just "this just pisses people off, it can;t work". Its a refreshment break , they do more if refreshed.

Anyway to cut it short, after one of these "conversations", nothing written or discussed, I'm given just 5 minutes to pack up and go.. just like that.

Any redress ?
