The current schedule I'm working is M Th Fr and every other weekend. When I asked if she could predict the new schedule she said she had no idea, which makes it impossible for me to schedule appointments, or hold a daycare spot. I tried explaining that and she ignored me. I'm willing to change my work schedule I just need to know what it will be. They need me to request days off 60 days in advance so they can schedule but they publish the schedule do weeks in advance which gives me no time to make plans. This was not an issue when it was just my husband and I, but now that I have a child I have to have a daycare spot for it is a problem. (Thus the lack of flexibility I used to have and not working doubles each weekend)I get that the unit has needs, but any place of employment should try to be a bit more family-friendly than this. A good workplace will have a manager that works with people, and staff who try to cover for each other. This one is going to have people at each other's throats before long.I think if you discuss your personal situation with HR, and they actually work with you, you can accomplish a few things. You might be able to keep your job and meet your family's needs. The power-tripping manager will get a reality check. And your coworkers hopefully won't get their needs summarily blown off and have to watch staff morale drop like a rock.I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.
