Do you get paid overtime for every hour you work after the 40 or 80 hours, or do they not pay for the first five hours and only start paying you on the 6th hour as the first overtime hour paid? They should pay you for every hour you work, else the company is getting 5 hours of free work. There must be some type of labor law for this.
The 9/80 work schedule was never offered to bargaining unit employees in spite of the fact that over 3,000 L3 Harris employees are unionized. The only time 9/80 was available to unionized employees was during the peak of the pandemic, when most of management stayed home hiding in their bedrooms. In Clifton New Jersey it was the unionized workers that kept the business going while the rest of management cowards stayed home for weeks even months at a time. And we paid for it, we paid for it by getting sick, and yes, some of us died. The 9/80 schedule was to enable cleaning crews to come in on off Fridays and sanitize the work areas. But that never happened. It was a total lie meant to make us feel safe going to work. Now, 9/80 is only reserved for management. The leadership of this company proved that they are total sc-m. While I feel badly for the people who are going to lose their jobs, this rotten corporation doesn't deserve to be in business. If the government did anything worth a damn, they would investigate this company and throw these ba----ds in jail for what they've done. While lying to your employees is not illegal, it is unethical. But, this went far enough to expose people to a fatal disease. And these rotten scoundrels did it on purpose. You can all stick your 9/80 schedules up your as--s.
I do love my 4/10's tho. EVERY Friday off!! Oh where am I? Down the street at Northrop, such a good place to work. Sorry to hear about the troubles at L3-Harris, we need good people in the SLC/Roy buildings.
what’s so bad about it
It is like working part time most days. 6-3:30 four days a week and 6-2:30 every other Friday. I think most people who actually get to work this schedule will grow to like it. And then again, if you keep your head down and your mouth shut, it will change again in a few months. It simply does not provide the needed support to the airplanes. I think that the corporate types simply don't understand that we actually deliver planes and you can't put planes into a specific time slot.
Legacy Harris doesn't work 24/7 365 days a year like we do in Greenville. So it'll be 9/80 for normal people and SCIF , flight line folks will still work . Carry on.
Legacy Harris started this in 1999, once you get use to it you’ll appreciate it. There had been rumors of it going away under BillBrown, and the engineers all threatened to quit.
We've had a 9/80 schedule in camden for over 30 years. Love it.
Today is first day for some engineering in Greenville. I say it lasts this month and then goes away.
First Friday off? In November? What location is that?
Tomorrow is the first off-Friday and people are already being told they need to work. Brilliant plan!
