Union accuses company of limiting bathroom breaks

According to a complaint filed by the Teamsters union, a Chicago company limits its employees to only six minutes in the bathroom per day.

WaterSaver Faucet allegedly thought its workers were spending too much time in the restroom, so they instituted the new policy that required swiping an employee card upon entering and leaving the lavatory.

Nineteen workers went over their allotted time in the month, and all of them received warnings.  The next time they violate the limit, they could face suspension.

The union complaint to the National Labor Relations Board said the policy is an invasion of privacy and sets unreasonable expectations.

Company CEO Steve Kersten said the policy will save hundreds of hours of productivity per month, although he admitted he does not have to swipe his employee card when using the bathroom.
