    Steps against shortening of lunch hour?

    I am a Senior Officer in a MNC. Recently a notice has come from the higher authority that the lunch timing will be shortened because of the excess work pressure and to provide sufficient time to employees to complete their tasks. As a consequence all the employees are disturbed with this. What steps should we take against this decision?

    Remaining healthy is the primary objective of life.Shortening of lunch hour will indeed be setback to the time for resting.The higher authority must have thought of some good reasons before shortening of your lunch hour.So it requires a peaceful discussion rather than direct revolt against the decision of the higher authority.Being a Senior Officer,you should take an initiative to solve this problem of the employees
    .
    -Hold a meeting among the employees concerning this issue.
    -Discuss all the problems of the employees.
    -Chalk out all the negative aspects of such a decision.
    -Submit a petition with the negative aspects and the request of fulfilling the demand of the employees to the higher authority,requesting them to hold a meeting regarding this issue with the union.
    -Go for the meeting and express the negative aspects of the decision on the employees.
    -Try to make the higher authority understand the adverse effects of such decision on the goodwill as well as smooth functioning of the company.
    -Explain the outcome of such decision on the work culture and the success of the company in the long run.
    -Request them to rethink on their decision and take a decision as per the interest of the employees.

    Hi aspirant

    I think you should definitely take the necessary steps to voice against this decision of your higher authorities. Your employees are certainly right when they are showing their dissatisfaction against this decision. Shortening of the lunch time to deal with excess of work pressure is certainly wrong as this will create even more pressure on the employees as they will not have enough time relax themselves. In this way they will not be able to do their work with full concentration as they would be tired and won't have enough energy to do so. So of course your employees would be disturbed.

    As a Senior officer you should put all these points forward in front of the mnagement and help your employees get out of this situation. You should tell them that all the employees are showing dissatisfaction against this decision of reduction in the lunch timings as they want some time to re-energize and refresh themselves after hectic schedule of the morning hours. Otherwise they will not be able to work properly during the hours after lunch. So you want them to reconsider their decision again and thus make it in the favour of the employees.

    I hope the senior authorities will definitely consider this matter from the employees's point of view and thus there will be no reduction in the lunch hours. Then all the employees would be happy.

    All the best and Thanks

    Dear friend,
    If this problem is for just few days don't do anything. but if it is permanent then you have held meeting who is suffered like you then write a letter regarding increase lunch time and take everyone sign on that paper and just give it to your boss or HOD. if possible then do face to face meeting with your boss and solve it.
