Need wording for # of Hours

Here's a silly one for you:

Most of the employees in our organization are hourly. For the past 30-some years, the number of hours for full-time positions has been stated in newspaper ads and job descriptions as "37.5 hours per week." The reason for this is that we have 30-minute, unpaid lunches.

When I first started here (~2 years ago) the "37.5 hours" thing seemed odd. But, now that I'd like to fix it, I've been looking at our "37.5 hours per week" so long, I can't remember how most companies word it. For those of you with unpaid lunch breaks, how do you express the number of hours in a work week?
