At present I am on 12 hour shifts, and in the next couple of weeks we have to switch to 10 hour shifts. The schedule they want us to go on is ugly, and I am hoping some one here can come up with one that isn't quite as ugly. We won't be working any Saturday night shifts or Sunday Dayshifts, and the schedule has to accomodate three crews and average out 80 hours every two weeks. (even though this one is 70 and 90 hours)
Work Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday DAYSHIFT
Work Sunday Monday Tuesday NIGHTSHIFT off for 5 days.
Come in Monday Tuesday DAYSHIFT Wednesday Thursday Friday NIGHTS off for 4 days, and start again on Wednesday Dayshift for 7 shifts.
That is ugly. 7 in a row, especially when for the last 17 years we've been working 4 on 4 off 12 hours shifts.
