Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but Christmas is a very busy time for most of us and that includes me, but don’t dispair as we, meaning the WCC, have been busy during Christmas working on the many details of the roll out of the new day off system and scheduling system that goes along with it. Were just trying to finalize some dates and arrangements for some meetings, I think you’ll be surprised at what’s in store for you all.
I can’t let too much out of the bag, but suffice to say you folks who want to know whats happening will have a tremendous opportunity to find out exactly what you want and what there is to offer, exciting times and just a little more patience and you will find out the where’s and when’s and finally the how’s.
All I can say is what was said at the Union meeting this past month, everybody will be surprised at the benefits of the new day off scenarios, more straight shifts, more X-Grp and some odd twists thrown in for people to think about, the tough part will be in keeping an open mind and determining which one is the winner, and why?
I can’t wait to see how well the selection process works?and how everybody decides whats best for them, an interesting month or two are coming up and its all for our benefit.
A shame it will take a fair while to implement, were talking radical change here folks, as said previously in another post the change will involve a whole new system with many new changes that we’ve been hearing about for many years, finally coming to life, you folks with many years left to go will have a great opportunity to set the tone for the rest of your life at transit, I will likely miss it as will most with higher seniority, oh well! I hope you folks who get to experience it will enjoy it, the people who worked hard to get it done are really looking forward to finally pulling the sheets off this new model, and I can’t blame them for being eager. Its been a long haul for the WCC schedules committee and they are bringing you the best they could, and it wasn’t always easy, or so I’ve heard as I’m not on the scheduling committee and I only got to see the passion of the people involved at certain times,?and they definitely are passionate about what they are doing here and some seem consumed with making the best out of what they have created and I?think ?they have succeeded, so hopefully everyone else is also happy with the presented scenarios, or at least one, which is after all what were looking for, isn’t it? Just one.
