I'll emphasise that I don't agree that there should be a situation where somebody is forced to work every weekend outside of leave for years on end but we need to be careful of creating an impression that weekend working is very much more biased towards juniority than perhaps is actually the case.
Absolutely agree with the above. Iím in the top third on my fleet. In May I worked two weekends (my choice), June I worked every weekend (definitely not my choice!), July Iím working one weekend (my choice) and by using leave and golden days I already know I wonít be working any weekends in August.
