CW actually means Contingent Worker, not Contract Worker.
Its called Volun"told"
They are officially called CW's now = contract worker. I have never heard the term ETW and I worked at HP from 2005-2008. Back then they were simply called temps. Husband is a CW now at HP and has been for 4 years.
ETW= External Temporary Worker.
It's what we called temps when I worked at HP. I suppose there might be a new term these days.
I know what a CW is but what is a ETW? I have only been at HP for 2 years and have not heard that one yet.
Is that really going to make a difference in the bottom line? Just how many ETW's does HP have these days? Are they still called ETW's?
"asked"......that is how my agency put it in their email.
"We are asking all of our contract workers to take 5 days off . . . . . . . ."
They (the agency) was trying to be polite.
