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???

    Why don't you and the others who want to keep 12 hour shifts request a meeting with management and express your wishes? They may decide not to do this if enough CNA's don't like the idea. If you are the only one that wants to keep the 12's, you may be out of luck.

    I didn't understand your comment about "giving your shift to people they haven't hired yet". What did I miss?

    some times you get the short end of the stick, but you can still let the new managers know how you feel about the situation. Remember the more people you have with the same issue the better they will listen.

    Good suggestion.

    Ultimately, it's management's decision. So be prepared for whatever they may do.

    And remember they're not the only ones with options.
