It does seem to vary even within Southern which I sort of understand based on work load, but also don't agree with. A friend of mine based at another Southern depot simply requests not to work his Sunday's, and he never works them. At my depot the chances of my request being accepted are probably less than 10%.

Fair play to Southern for getting buses sorted so quick. Bastards.

We have a good amount of permanent na's here, but the number of booked sundays is increasing all the time, so they usually end up having to do a few. I'm long weekend this weekend but popped in earlier and he has 9 uncovered at the moment for sunday, and thats before he gets to look at the permanent not availables

Not really a perk, They all have the same rest day patterns, but change from earlies to lates and visa versa mid-week.

Trouble is with that is people would be prone to throwing bitch fits and probably complain to our train companies. I was reading on the rail forum that there is a chap who regularly complains to FCC on their twitter that all train drivers work a two day, 12 hour week, on about 80k a year. If that were true everyone would work on the railway. Clown!

Macstar I did know about them switching shift midweek, they asked us about a year ago if we wanted to stay as we are or switch to that method. Pretty resounding that most people wanted to stay as we are.

Can't blame them really. Hard enough as it is to sort out childcare and get into a sleep pattern when you start at 0430 one week and finish at 0130 the next.

How about a railway worker's thread, so that us signallers can be allowed on it too?

The master Rosta had me at 14.37 Sunday, found out today they have booked me a job that starts at 07.08, childcare is impossible when they move your job 7 hours.
