Time off

#1
Our boss is always taking long weekends off without putting in a leave application. This is not a one off occurance, but about 2 weekends each month. What really makes us mad is that we are still working over the weekends. Does anybody know what we can do to stop this happening or am i just going to get the answer RHIP?

Give him 5 minutes then follow him out the door.

Dear somethingtomaonabout,

1. Tuff sh*t.

2. Stag on.

3. If I want to take 2 or even 4 long weekends a month I will, so cram it you crow.

4. You know where to find the WRVS ladies if you want a shoulder to cry on.

Get the clerks to put it on UNICOM anyway, but be prepared to back it up with a good argument, embarassing him in front of someone senior is always a good one! You don't say if it is an Orifice or WO/SNCO, if he is and Offr then one of your SNCOs should be earning his bloody money and having it out with him?

Become a civvy, and get every weekend off.
And more money too.

His leave is between him and his CO. It's f*ck all to do with you. Suggest you wind your neck in and get on with what you are paid to do. Who the f*ck are you, the Unit snitch? Had a bad CR or a good rifting recently have you?

Nob.

He is an orifice and our seniors are too spineless to face up to him.
Then take matters into your own hands and grass him up to your OC. That'll teach the b*stard and your SNCOs will resepct you for it.

Somethingtomoanabout, maybe your name says it all.

What next to moan about? Or is it that your annual report does not make nice reading and you are not the star you think you are?

Maybe he prefers to take his annual leave (or part of it) as single days, with the agreement of his boss. Unless you can prove that he does not submit leave passes, you have no right to make any assumptions whatsoever.

And your 'spineless' SNCOs are aware of the arrangement...

Somethingtomoanabout seems to have piped down [sorry, nautical term].

Could it be that he found out that it was legit after all?

Or is he all 'shout-and-stir-with-no-substance' like all good barrack-room lawyers?

No i haven't piped down. Took some advice and done some investigating.
To all you so called know it alls out there, his time off was not legit, there was no leave passes put in and he is taking his full leave entitlement at the same time as myself. I do work on UNICOM so i do know abit about what i am doing.

Seems to me that its some of you who have your heads stuck up yor arrse and are scared to deal with officers who break the rules!! :evil:

So you are a clerk, or mis-employed as one? Are'nt you a high-flyer!

Either shut up and stop whining, or go and report it to the RAOWO/RAO - if you've got the balls!

Sounds as though you may be getting seeen off, however, note the following: (whether you, I or anyone else like it, this applies)

Yes RHIP,
Why keep dogs and bark etc,
He is still writing your report,
If you are working weekends then you haven't finished your work in the week.
Remember it, learn from it, use it later.

Lastly, and I'll try not to be as abrupt as some, but, you appear to be the only one that cares!

Then why don't you deal with yours, instead of boring us to death with your sh*te.

Biscuits_AB, well said.

Somethingtomoanabout, I look forward to hearing what you have done about it - for example, to whom you reported it and what action has been taken against the individual? If you are correct, then is this not a case of AWOL?

I can just picture the headline in the Sun - 'Squaddie Exposes Officer Racket - Officer Forced to Resign'. Soldier quoted as saying that 'it is unacceptable for an officer to break the rules - officers are expected to set an example'. [Well, maybe not the quote - it contains legible joined up writing...]

Typical of the Orifice corps.. do as i say not as i do Bde.

One way to sort him out is via your Unit EO (Equal Ops) this is done in confidence so the bugger won't know who stiched him up......

But a word of caution i read a DCI last year can't remember the issue No but basicly it stated that with the agreement of the CO anyone can work
" Flexi Hours" .. perhaps he has this arrangement and makes up his hours after you have knocked off.

Not sticking up for the bloke but just maybe he like quite a few of us... this may be the only time he gets to see his family because he has decided to put down roots rather than live on a Qtr patch.

be careful before you take him to task ... you could end up with egg on your face
