Unfortunately most of the damage has already been done by the likes of DC, MH and RH. Persons promoted to positions that they should not have (at all levels), with little experience, and in sections where they should not be. A change of manager will not fix these issues. Most of these problems are here to stay.

We can only hope that the new GM will have the brains to clear out the current band of misfits masquerading as managers,positions they got because of who they know, and employ some real dynamic managers who really know and understand the business.... and hopefully bring us into the 21st Century!!!.

FMU, you have hit the nail on the head.

Jealousy is a curse. And has a nasty tendency to cloud good judgement.

why would he be jealous of a lame earning $1185.12 per week
signing out maintenance on say a 744?
after all the previous 'incumbent' got over 30 times that amount.

Eight hour shifts resulted in more overtime than the Twelve hour arrangement because of the continuity of work requirement.

While pay was higher, our wonderful income tax system took a very large chunk out of that extra money.

Now move to Twelve hour shifts. Overtime decreases or ceases, but the "continuous quality time" of full days and nights available to spend with the family increases dramatically and most felt that it more than outweighed the relatively small reduction in pay.

The biggest loser was the ATO.

As a manager, since when do you get those levels of time off??
