I mainly just want to have a whinge but feel free to comment if you like. I have a casual job at a detox centre and I haven't had any work for weeks. Anyway, I rang the admin person who does the rosters a few weeks ago and it turns out I have been struck off the roster. In the mean time I went for another job using my supervisor as a referee and I didn't get the job. So I rang her to ask if there were any job performance issues and she said the reason I didn't get the job was as she hadn't seen me work with clients (true) but asked me to come in for a meeting to go through my job description. Anyways I rang my union rep to ask if I had any rights as a casual and she said they would have to have a good reason to not give me work and that the reason of work performance wouldn't hold much weight because I had only worked 15 shifts - 11 orientation and 4 with responsibility. She also said that extra shifts should be divided evenly between casual staff and they can't discriminate. So I talked to my supervisor this morning and it turns out there were no work performance issues. Then I told her of my right to an equal number of shifts and she went off. She said the reason I was not getting shifts was because she had more experienced casual staff - but she accused me of starting industrial action (I just asked about my rights) and that I had contacted the union without her knowing (of course I can do that whenever I want) and that she should be able to give work to who she wants on her unit (her unit - personally funded by her) and said that I wasn't employed with the unit as she had never sent the paper work! Anyway I know that there is heaps of evidence that I am employed there but I did not really know what to say so I said I might get my union rep to ring her about that and she said that she would refuse to speak to the union rep! Unbelievble response. I mean, apparantly things have changed since I was employed because they have a new unit opening next door and they won't need as many casual staff - so I guess my supervisor wants to give the old staff more shifts - but that is not my problem. So, anyway, I think I am finished whinging now.
