Right now our duty assignments are under attack.

Management has come up with this program that uses “earned hours” rather than “actually hours”.  When I asked them to show me the formula they used to get earned hours they could not provide it.  Now this will all get exposed in the grievance process and we are fighting hard to keep each and every bid that they revert.

On the other hand, it is very important that we don’t give them reasons to take bids. Employees working on DBCS with only one employee are showing management they can take away another bid. If they only staff your machine with one employee, ask for a partner, if they don’t give you one ask for a steward. Employees not reporting Management for preforming clerk work is allowing them to take hours away from us. If you see them doing clerk work request a steward.
