    Exclamation Hmmmmm.....!!!!

    Well come to find out that when we started work this morning our ER's and NR's and anything that the office used to give to us is now coming from Indiana? I guess the people in the office showed up to work this morning and were told they were no longer needed???? No notice just happened over the weekend????

    Much worse than when we were 30 dayed and told we will no longer have a job a few years back when SBC took locates in house????

    Pretty shitty just goes to show they dont give a shit about any of us even the office people.

    I'm not 100% sure but I think ELM here in Idaho is being dispatched out of Montana. They no longer use a local dispatcher.

    Here is what is going on. ALL SM&P/CLS Emergencies, restakes, and short notices are eventually going to be dispatched from Carmel, IN. Most of the staff there is all temps (no benefits). There are only a few full time staffers. Each district will have 1 full time staffer (for damage notifications / general filing and paperwork).
    USIC eventually wants to petition to start taking over the one call centers from their central dispatch (more money and influence).
    Basically each office will have 1 DM, 1 Trainer, 1 Claims Coordinator , 1 Operations Coordinator, and 1 Office Manager (secretary).
    Eventually most functions (if not already) will come from Carmel.
    It was said last March that as much of the non-profitable positions would be eliminated. Yes this sucks for those that lost their jobs.

    Yes but they could have at least given them some damn notice as these people have been in place and good employees for a long ass time.... Pretty selfish to save a few $$$$ IMHO?

    That there is a stand up individual. I did however hear that the manager didnt even know it was coming, it was a complete suprise to him also.... He just had to drop the bad news on them after their thanksgiving vacation....
