This is a good one, last year in our company the girl, sorry , young lady in rostering who was actually quite niffty with her PC; had the life tortured out of her by 1, her imediate boss and 2, a very large percentage of our flight crew.
I, fortunately for me, wasn't in that percentage.
When she finally had deciced that enough was enough and handed in her notice, she also left a little present for those that had treated her with respect.....and for those that didn't.
Myself and several of my colleagues have found that this year we have had "extra leave "allocated, in my case 52 days instead of 42 ! This varies depending on who you speak to, one guy has had double his entitlement.
Also some of my colleagues have not been allocated their full entitlement, you can guess which percentage they lie in, can't you ?
Before the "ethics police "get on their high horses, my self and the colleagues who have been given this little bonus have all contacted rostering to inform them of the "adminastrative error."
The reply was that, they were aware of the problem but there is nothing that they are able to do to correct the problem; and that the program had been locked by the aforementioned with a safe guard of not allowing extra duties to be rostered.
I am not that good with PCs and I am still learning, can any one enter a program such as this that can't be unlocked ?
Don't p1ss off your rostering department I suppose is the short answer.
