Their position should be simple.... We have a matrix and an order of consideration and all RCA work must be handed out accordingly... RCAs must be willing to file though, many are not.Management will follow whatever District says because they don't want to be hammered on the telecon. So they're enforcing the 5 day rule. We don't have anyone who "isn't working" as all RCA's in our offices are scheduled to the max, no ARC's. Just emailed union DR for position.
5 days, that's the shortest i've seen.. And in an area like yours, im impressed with district's cluelessness.
-- I wrote "SDO" simply because management will schedule it and abide by it by any means necessary. Not implying that RCAs are entitled to an actual SDO.
