Default gu

gu is a good spot if you can get it and want a regular shift.once you except the gu spot noone can knock yu off your shift regardless of your time on the job.also can learn a lot about the job and can get wrecker qualified if thats something your intrested in.dont make any extra money unless your night gu(night diff)good spot except maybe in winter during snow gets kinda off hectic otherwise a pretty good gig by the way i have 9 years on and have been guin q5a for last 6 months or so. any questions let me know

For the guys anticipating getting called after the august class(including myself).Dont work yourselves into a sweat even though sometimes you cant help it....theres plenty of rumors going around that ive become numb to,but like the post a couple of pages down mentioned,and from a couple of union guys i know..in the end the union makes things move...i heard everything but what the commish said, so just sit back and let it unfold.

Less guys=less union dues. You know they don't want that to happen.

nyhc what a crappy week man but what can you do.... looks like now were on a mission to find out when the next classes will be... and if u think about it that 1 in 3 thing didnt even come close 464 u said right....i think im gunna call and ask what the last list number was im looking to here at least 500....lol

good luck with OJT guys remember your probation is in ultimate effect lol
