Make sure you have qualified management staff. Assure that all employees are treated with respect by management. Stop the favoritism by upper management. Make sure when you decide to discipline an employee you get all facts do not accept what other people tell you get the employee side that way the suspension might not be merit especially if you have an employee who has never been disciplined during their time with the City/GLWA. Stop allowing clerical dictate to mgmt what should or should not be. Magmt makes decision s not clerical.

I was just fired for also filing my complaints about a rude, unprofessional Team Lead/Supervisor who was discriminative against me from day one! She would go off on me and when I tried to talked to her several times it only got worse. She had me fired the next week!

Rotational shifts for Water tech and System tech. 6 day shifts, off two days 7 afternoons shift off two “technical days” 7 midnight shifts off four days and the rotation is repeated. One weekend off every 4 weeks. However, that’s not necessarily true at all locations. Although all treatment plants and Systems control are 24 hour operations. Some sites have straight shifts. Which goes back to things not being uniformed and unfair because of this “DISCRETION” management and supervision has.
It would be healthy and create a better balance of quality of life if GLWA implemented straight shifts across the board. In addition, it probably wouldn’t be a challenge to hire and keep plant, water and systems technician if there was a straight shift.
