The Union Screws The ATRs Yet Again!
What brought this change on? I can only speculate that the discovery of the number being 1475 ATRs by Fransesco Portelos at the end of 2012 and not the 831 that the union seemed to claim, has embarrassed the union leaders who have falsely stated that the weekly ATR rotation successfully exposed ATRs to more vacancies. WHAT A CROCK OF SHIT! The reality is that the ATR weekly rotation is a farce and the only ATRs getting picked up are the younger and less expensive ATRs. Therefore, most of the ATRs are older and more expensive and have few opportunities to apply for the vacancies. To make matters worse the ATR agreement allows schools to ignore seniority issues by seeking younger and less expensive ATRs who were most recently excessed. The result is that ATRs who have been ATRs for two or more years are not likely to be interviewed for the vacancy.
