Uh, are they having budget issues or not?They were just talking layoffs!
Baffles us just as much as it does you. Metro has been asked by the union (particularly in light of pending cuts) not to do any new hiring of either PT or FT Operators. Yet it has put out the call for FT Operators (hired from the PT pool) and re-opened PT hiring in apparent open defiance of the union request (designed to give existing employees enough hours).For Punkrawker who may see this as "negative":For one to trulyUnderstand the Complexity of the Kind of stuff that happens each Year at Metro,One must appreciate theUnderlying Complexity of theHorrific an undeniable lack ofAccountability in contrast to thatDemanded in the private sector-jw
Jeff!! Nothing was negative, but facts, all before the "Punkrawker" part of course ;)I'm wondering if thats the reasoning behind the speedy timeframes.....Something just seems fishy, or theres stuff we dont know....
Remember that memo titled "Overtime - Or Lack Thereof" from Bachtel where he mentioned that the County had been asked not to do any new hiring?It's disappeared from both union boards at Atlantic/Central as well as the ATU 587 web site where it was previously posted.So yeah - there's stuff we don't know, and probably should.
