At the beginning of the year I was made a ‘production key worker’. I was told that I would get paid an extra £3 per week. This did not happen.
Because of this and the involvement of certain parties who are connected to the Print Shop blocking me from doing any arts project work in there, I stood down from my key worker role. Given the amount of work I have put into the Print Shop over the past 2 ½ years, I feel very badly treated and this has destroyed any trust within my working relationships. I am considering alternative employment. Right now, pen assembly sounds better.
If this was all about controlling me and my time, clearly there has been a lack of consequential thinking.
Be happy, be safe (and have the confidence to take your skills elsewhere).
