  1. If you haven't heard yet, five more furlough days for CNHI'ers

    Shocking.
     
  3. It wasn't intended to be shocking news, but just a heads up to anyone whose administration thought they would wait until Monday to drop the news.
    Most people in our building were a little surprised by the news. We thought we had passed some imaginary deadline date since it was so close to the end of the quarter.

    Kimron: Thanks for the heads up. Greedy bastards haven't told us at our shop, yet.

    Sigh.

    (No, we haven't been told here either)

    Besides not getting paid 20 days out of the year, this is one of the things that annoys me most about CNHI furloughs, the way they are announced. Some people in the company seem to find out about it way early, by weeks or even months. But it's not like it's a leak. Yes, it's a big company, but still. Seems like someone from Birmingham could figure out a way to make sure everyone found out at once. It wouldn't make it any less frustrating as far as money or hours, but it would be nice to believe that management knows how to effectively send a company-wide memo. Just a thought.

    Holy crap, 20 days! One whole month without pay.

    They have got to have the most furlough days of any U.S. company (journalism or non-journalism), right?

    Hank: On top of that, it's 31 days in the last 18 months.

    Tough part is on us salary people. I refuse to allow my guys work a second without being paid for it while they are dealing with furloughs, so it falls on me. For me, since there's a no-OT policy, it doesn't amount to a furlough -- it's a flat pay cut.

    At least you get the time off with it. The company I work for handed out a flat 5 percent pay cut a couple of years ago, which when you figure a 40-hour work week (snicker) at 48 weeks a year (snicker), it's 12 days the company gets me for free.

    That's a whole pay period, plus two days.

    OTR: That was my point, as the lone salary guy on a 3-man staff, the time off isn't a reality.

    Colton: So you being salary, don't get five days off, just the pay cut?


    CNHI probably has zoomed past JRC as the worst media company. Well, maybe.

    Hank: It's supposed to be that way, but in reality, on a 3-guy staff, the other two being hourly, it's almost impossible for me to get the time off, since I will not allow my guys to work without being paid. It's just a shit sandwich. The fact I choose to keep eating it is my fault alone.
