WELL ST LUCIE HAS FOUND ANOTHER WAY TO SCREW OVER AND PISS OFF THE TECHS AND THE DECONNERS!

It was really nice of them 3 weeks before the outage to cut a bunch of positions,when this was something they could have done earlier to save the techs their money on condo's and apts. they paid for and to find other work.

Im sure they arn't planning to to pay everyone back who lost money to come to do their outage.
It just goes to show you how we need a  union more than ever to protect the workers.

If you do that to them and back out you have hell to pay,if they do it there is no penalty or reprocussions.
You just can't keep treating people this way!

Actually Rome, they can, and will.   :(

The utilities don't even recognize RP techs as a real resource most of the time. Contractors are like leather gloves to them....they provide some protection, but if you don't have them, you still get the work done.... :o

I can't recall Lucie ever not staffing, and there are enough folks that will go there no matter what to always fill it up.

Can't say the treatment will be any better here, but come on up to VY for our outage. Atlantic still has openings last I heard...

Peace,

Worked St Lucie last fall.  They have an old boy cronyism in place that if you're not a part of, forget it.  Also while down there I found out that they are infamous for laying people off 2 or 3 weeks into an outage without any warning.  Because of the area and the good ole boys they will always get staffed, but I, like quite a few others before me make note.  I wont say I'll never go back, but if you see me down there you'll know that I'm getting a really, really nice rate of pay.

Thanks to all the Bartlett Hps and Deconners on nights.  I had a really good outage and didnt get yelled at once by my bosses.  I know it was very hot for a few days in containment at the beginning of the outage and that we worked the Deconners like sledding dogs, but it wasnt all that bad on nights.  Take care and thanks again, I have to go update my resume now.

St. Lucie did it again, short staffing and aggressive scheduling. Add to that the delay in cooling containment made for a miserable first week. If you worked containment it was a very long - short outage. The plant ran a number of their own techs into the ground as well and are closing in on becoming one of those plants that friends won't let friends work at.

Biloxi, you didn't get yelled at because I wasn't there working with you,hahaha.
Sorry we missed this one.
Maybe next spring,oh wait i'll be in brazil working the SGRP,maybe the next one after that.
Is your brother going to work in brazil for the sgrp?

Well i did do  a seven hour jump (refuel mast repairs) and a couple of six hour jumps but I still think the aux building techs had the worst.  We had a great group in ctmt.  and we were a team so all in all it wasnt bad.   Right now we cant get by 80 percent power so I dont know how my turkey day will be.  Yeah I miss your wife, but I cant really say I miss you.   I have to keep my ties in case I get tired of the house thing.  You take care and remember NFL teams cant play great three times in a row.   Talk to ya later radbastard.
