    Default New Year, New Start!

    Well folks, let's hope the new year brings me a bit more luck than i had towards the end of 2006.
    I have been having serious problems for a while with work taking the pi$$ out of us as engineers.
    We were assessed 2 weeks before xmas to see how much bonus we were each due and i was told i would be getting £1280. Nice xmas spends!
    3 days before Xmas we were told there would be no bonus this year. Even though it is a performance bonus based on "first time fix" and response times the big boss said NO BONUS. Then we were not paid our ordinary monthly bonus, then to top it all i had 5 days wages stopped because i had only sent in a doctors sick note for my car accident and not filled in a "self cert" form.
    We all then had a request to work harder and pull the company through this difficult time For the last 12 months or so we have all worked our nuts off for no overtime as we are salaried. We get paid for 37.5 hours a week and thats it!
    I have worked an average of 50 hours a week this year. mmmm i wonder how much they owe for that
    There are loads of other issues and problems but i'd use this months bandwidth putting them all down on here

    Well i've had some phone calls over the past few days resulting in me having an interview on Thursday for a better paid job doing the same thing with a much smaller area to cover. Not saying i'll get the job but it's a start and at least it keeps me sane Fingers crossed

    It would seem that cos you drove the Vec sideways and always last month your boss is taking it out on you, probably cos he wanted it for himself



    Have a better one this yr Tony.

    Best of luck Tony.

    Sounds like they are taking the p.

    It would be great to hand your notice into the big boss in person, with a polite but to the point explanation of why.

    Fingers Crossed for you Tony. It is not nice when the firm you work for is tating the p122, it seems to be happening a lot nowadays, we need more union strength I think, good luck anyway.
