Ftel Out of Area
We, the undersigned employees from Ftel wish to raise our concerns that there is no allowance for when a technician is routed outside of his/her contractual area.
We believe that reasonable compensation should be in place where substantially extra travelling time is involved which can result either in a loss of earnings or people feeling pressured to breach H&S regulations just to make up lost time.
We also believe that the rules surrounding overtime are unfair. While our contracts stipulate that we will be required “from time to time to work overtime”, any overtime should be agreed on voluntary basis between a manager and staff at every occasion.
We believe that these issues contradict the company’s core values: “The interests of individuals and the needs of the organisation are balanced“
We ask that you consult immediately with elected Voice reps to agree criteria and appropriate arrangements for when technicians are required to work outside of their contractual area.
