Just reading all this, the answer is to leave, but it is very scary to leave a job, when you are 60, even though he is fit.
We all worry about bills, we are use to getting paid weekly and most get paid monthly, so scary for us.
Once you get past the first month its much easier getting paid monthly, you shuffle all your bills so they come out the day after pay day for example, fill your car up, do a big food shop, then divide your rest by 4

I used to work for one of the large banks before retiring. Although in my office they were very flexible if we had to work extra it was unpaid. I used to have to travel to London (from Edinburgh) for meetings and it was taken as part of the job even though if it was an 8 am flight and not back until 7 or 8 pm. It did not matter what level you were either.

I know I am a cynic but it doesnt matter how good your husband is at his job - you are just a number at the end of the day in so many workplaces.

To be honest if he is worried about his job if he speaks out you will have to decide if its worth it - I know its unfair.

it does depend on the contract your husband has. In some contracts it states that you will be paid from stated base eg the yard until you get back to the base. But others in this situation can say things such as the first hour at the end of day day will not be paid but after that it will be. or some say if the job is over x distance away you will be paid. There are just too many variants. He needs to ask for a copy of the contract and then ask for it to be applied. If the employer does not want to abide by the contract then your husband has a choice to make grin and bear it , Make it clear you will leave a job x minutes before to get back to the yard, or leave and consider if he wants to goto a tribunal.

Sadly I think this is true.
He needs to think VERY carefully before doing anything. He needs to think through how far he will take it and if the relationship falls apart. How dependent is he on this job? etc. etc.

It is easy to get up in arms about stuff like this and act without understanding potential consequences.

My work at the moment is I get paid til the van is back in yard, no matter what time of day/night.
But when I worked for FedEx, I got same salary every week wether I finished at 5pm or 8pm! That's why I don't work for FedEx anymore! (That,and they are a shower of *****! ).
And yes, definitely don't leave the job til u have another lined up.
