Do you really think that your second last paragraph is helpful?
I am writing to express my
displeasure and bitternessstrong disappointment with your decision to change my shift pattern.
As you are probably aware, my
main andprimary role at the moment is quality checking. I have been working in this role for more than six months now, succeeding JG who had been working as a quality checker for more than a year. Because of the nature of this role, the shift pattern of the quality checker has always been fixed to certain days in the week-- Sunday to Thursday. The reason forThis is thatbecause there are no restaurant orders that need to be checked on Saturday. It seems reasonable and logical, therefore, that a quality checker have this day off in the work pattern, as there is not much work to do on Saturday.
would like to allow myself to challenge your opinionwish to outline my disagreement with your decision which you statedexplained in an email to the night-shift manager JH, saying that I should not stay on a fixed pattern, nor be the only person ableto do the checking, and that there needs to be more workers trained to perform the role ofin checking , taking into considerationto cover for the checker in case ofabsence or 'long term sickness'. You may have not been informed that there are currently at least three operatives (PM, GD and SR), who have been trained to do the checking and who have effectively substituted for me in this role on many occasions, usually on Friday or when I was on holiday. The only significant difference between me and them that is worth mentioning,us is that I am a person whocan log on to the computer systems used in our workplaceto obtain all the necessary paperwork for checking and do not have to depend on admin clerks for assistance.
In your response to JH, you also stated
that it would beit was unfair that I should be the only operative 'privileged' with a regular shift pattern. , meaning that other operatives could be displeased with this fact.I and previously JG have been working on fixed-days rotas for more two years, and this has never been questioned or disputed. I have never heard any warehouse operative express dissatisfaction with this fact. It seems that everyone has accepted the status quo in this regard because it wasis considered sensible and practical.
I would also like to
make you awarepoint out that I aspire to assume a role in office administration in the future. , which I hope will one day come true.I managed to establish a position ofalways been a reputable and reliable employee , wh o has displayedwith exceptional performance and commitment. and who hasI have become familiar with office work and WMS, which is very much in line with my current aspirations. To come back to an irregular shift pattern is something that I regard as a major setback and a factor that could hinder my career development. Thus, I find your decision find itvery upsetting and disheartening, and that you are being so firm and uncompromising in your decision that,in my view, is rather inconsiderate and undeserved.It is a matter of utmost importance to me that I return to my previous shift pattern.
On top of that, I recently applied for the internal position of Stock and Admin Clerk, and I was not even given a chance to be interviewed. I have reason to believe that there are ‘forces’ within our company which are conspiring to prevent employees like me from progressing; forces that are making a concerted effort to impede decent, hard-working peoples' development. I have a feeling that there exists a ‘glass ceiling’ within our company that does not allow ambitious employees to further their careers and pursue their goals. I have reason to believe that decisions about promotion or admission into the stock and admin team are entirely arbitrary and are not based on objective, impartial assessment of particular candidates’ suitability for the role. All this leaves me with a feeling of a profound letdown and a sense of injustice. It appears that all my previous efforts and commitment have proven to be in vain. It is all indeed very frustrating, and I feel as though all the enthusiasm has been drained from me.
I therefore urge you to reconsider your decision, and I trust that this letter has given you a deeper understanding of my position on this issues.I would welcome an opportunity to meet with you at your convenience to discuss and hopefully try to resolve this issue.
