Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about distribution of work load:
I and one other employee work on the 3rd shift as a school custodians. We work 10p-6am. We have a day custodian (facilitator) who gives us direction. She cannot reprimand us but sometimes she is one of those troublemakers who starts trouble between employees and then stands back and watches the fireworks fly. There are three shifts in this school. Our problem is we all have areas to do. We have a relatively new coworker who is a known troublemaker in the district. She is on the 2nd shift in our building. My problem is that this coworker bad mouths people behind our back. She has befriended the head custodian. The 2nd shift custodian decided she didn’t like her area and wanted ours. So our head custodian (even though the building needs do not meet their shift and area) decided she was going to make us do their area and they can have ours. I have been in this building for 6 years with pretty much the same area and this employee has been on workman’s comp mostly in the years she has been in the district. She hasn’t always been in our building. She told (because we found a note in the trash) our head custodian that my coworker and I think her area is so easy, so why doesn’t our head custodian give it to us and see how we like it. Well that was two weeks ago.
