CO Concessions And Reserve For Co Emp.

Reserves, what are they. They are the people that put in the grunt work. Cover sick calls. Cover trips not assigned. etc. After being on reserve for 6 years, it finally looks like my time is coming to an end. Thank God. Ive done my time, and its time for someone else to put theres in just like all the people before me. Some longer than others. Will i miss it. H*** no. Will I care about others issues that will be going on reserve H*** no. It won't effect me until i go back on reserve then i will deal with it when that time comes. Regarding this t/a, people cant tell me that its not all about them. I hardly doubt that the senior mommas/pappas are gonna vote no because the reserves aren't being take care of. No, they are gonna vote no because the dont get paid for turns and there vaca, and the 65 hour thing. I would more likely than not vote no if my 5 dollar raise was effected (not saying i am or not just an example) along with some other things that effects me at my seniority level and what will happen in the future for ME. I guess all im saying is that everyone is gonna have a specific reason to vote how they vote. And thats how it effects them. To pretend they are voting either way to take care of others people needs is laughable. That is the only problem that i have with the t/a is that it does seperate us into that kinda thinking. Training pay, dont care 2 days out of the year. 65 hour thing dont care wont happen for 20 years. 1.85 per diem 15c less kinda sucks. NOW getting paid report time to block, instead of block to block LOVE, just to name a few examples. Just wish it could of been more fair. But LIFE isn't FAIR
