just wondering what to do

  1. Im a night shift CNA at a little nursing home in north central kansas, and we have a new administrator and a LPN wo is due to take her boards in may as a ADON, well the problem is that they have decided to take all 12 hour CNA shifts away an d go to 8 hr while the nurse stay at 12 hour shifts, I've worked there 7 years and probably missed that many days (7) in calling in I like and was hired for twelves, and they never even discused the change at all with any of the noc shift....why can they give my hours that im willing to work to people they havent even hired yet, can they do this and what if anything can we do about keeping our shift???

    Under "management rights", they can do whatever they want with their business operations..... UNLESS your job is unionized and you have a union contract with the employer detailing what they may and may not do. If you aren't in a union job, and dont have a contract that says they cannot change your hours or eliminate 12 shifts, they can do it and not even be obligated to listen to your complaint. Maybe if everybody threatens to resigns over this - effective the same date - management might reconsider.
