Agenda For Change Frustrates me!!

  1. I cant believe it..It is just so frustrating, nurses who came 3 months to 2yrs after me are paid more than I do!!

    wELl, i cant imagine the angst of those who are in service for the last 20 years and are paid behind, their counterparts who got qualified 10 years and earlier were paid more..

    I rang salaries and wages and I begged to be explained why...and the last line? "I am just unfortunate and there is nothing they can do aboout it"..

    What a?...

    I dont think this is gonna get better...u know newly qualified staffs who cant even insert a cannula, handle CVPs, perform and interpret blood gases are paid more than me..

    SOrry to channel my frustrations here..I have colleagues who are experiencing the same.. the more our working condition is not inspiring as it shld be..
    went to my union, and they cant dp anything about it yet, as the assimilation is MAD.. well, no doubt about it IT IS REALLY MAD>>

    :angryfire:angryfire:angryfire:angryfire:angryfire :angryfire:angryfire



    i think, therefore, i will think again!!!

    AFG has been kind to me but the other F grade got a 3.40 wage rise, she was so cross and upset but because I didnt sign up til late I got over 900 rise because I had an increment and the april wage rise had accured. I feel really bad for her.

    eXACTLY...there are people who are blessed and fortunate to be vindicated w/ a better than before, well deserving increment but a number has been on the other end of it..

    I just cant understand why its difficult for them to analyze it...

    the nurse practitioners at the soho walk in centre all got low grade- 5 I think! this is for nurses who are all qualified NP's.....are extended nurse prescribers........who work totally independantly........no doc to turn to.. and are they valued? NOPE! they are bringing in physicians assistants at 45k....... so maybe I should just do that training!! sigh.

    I'm still waiting to be assimilated! (when did we join the Borg collective?)

    I believe the questionaires when they have no idea where to put you are a right pain in th ar*e. They just dont make life simple do they.

    I personally think, this A4C is not going to make our pay and working conditions any better...

    too early to judge A4C, i know and please dont call me stereotyped... well, i studied my stars and ruling planets and it said, it's not promising at all..

    i think ill go to middle east and be a servant of a princess instead....or to libya, and become a florist..:flowersfo:flowersfo

    or start my business in bermuda triangle..
