Kris Pringle?  That is very witty.  If only I had the ability to come up with such deep cutting insults.  This layoff has been handled deplorably.  Many people here have been through several layoffs, most all are of the opinion that this is the worst handling of a layoff that they have seen.  Hopefully you made the cut Snowman.  Love you.

With ARRA money these labs piled us up like cord wood.  Lots of projects lots of work.  Now that the time and money are gone, whether through careful/thoughtful spending or waste we are being cast adrift like ashes in the wind.  I don't know about you guys and girls but at $35 an hour and a hundred a day only a dumb ash wouldn't do it again.  Happy motoring to the next job, may your future be filled with health and wealth.

I heard the number was back above 480. At least one of the ARRA techs is staying now. Don't be surprised if the number is back above 500 by the end of the year. CH2MHill is still trying to figure out what it takes to do the work they're committed to complete. After that all bets are off on call backs.

As of late Wednesday CH has called back 7. This is unconfirmed as the company has not informed the union of the actual numbers.  I suspect the numbers will continue to change.  Right now the challenge is make sure the bump and roll process is done correctly.  A few mistakes have already been caught and corrected. I would suspect the numbers would firm up a bit by 10/3.

The "official" number is sitting at 482. Rumor has it there are 2 more that  have been contacted, but the hall has not received notice on them.   And the Beat goes on and on and.... :)

New rumor has it that WRPS is bringing back 55 bargaining unit employees.  Any guesses as to how many of those could be RCT's.

RCTs identify that work needs to be done, RCTs define the scope of work that needs to be done, RCTs determine whether or not the work is being done successfully, RCTs verify that the work is complete, RCTs to the final status survey documenting that the project was successful. Perhaps RCTs and Operators have equal parts to play in the D&D process. When they bring back NCOs perhaps they will need to bring back RCTs to cover them.

Heard over the weekend that Tank Farm Projects re-organized to 19 techs. That's down from about 30.

True.  Took some from projects and spread them out to base ops, labs and closure.

Here we go again.

Well I survived the cut ad was bumped down to WCH\ESHI. On Friday some guys were talking about layoffs in January here on this side. So i asked my group of people including my supervisor and he said if there is any for Radcon that it would be more on the lines of after April of 2012.

Anybody have a clue on this new rumor? And what is our new number as off today of techs?

I sure hope we don’t get laid off 3 months after being called back......

I know that there's a new rumor a day - or an hour - at Hanford but I've talked to some friends still there who say that most places are ghost towns with no work getting done. I've heard rumors about staffing up again to some level in the spring to start getting things done. Maybe the pendulum will swing back toward the middle just a little?

I've heard that work is very slow. Once a week or so someone gets a big idea to start a project and calls for a pre-job where not enough people show up (remember it takes about HP six techs and two IH techs to do anything) so everyone ambles back home. Hopefully the pendulum will swing back to the middle somewhere over the next couple of years. I wouldn't expect much until after the next election cycle.

If they are hiring people back from the lay off list, they should be pushed over to the WCH side, and let the senior people go back to CHPRC. Seems like they are bending every rule they can, holding the forced over to WCH for a year, to do what dig dirt?  The union is all for the companies, and not for the people who pay them every week.
Take there tests, that have nothing to do with the work. Never train, just have books thrown at you, for you to read, and they test on what you read.
I glad they are taking people back, just torture, them on this side.

Currently 8 Openings at WRPS.  I would expect them to be filled by lamp and possibly the backfills could come off the recall list...

 Well looks like the various companies have called back to about # 501 ( possibly more ) on the "old"  prelay off list... at least for some temporay work...WRPS has 8 openings posted for lamp. The backfills could possibly be filled by permanent call backs after the shuffle is done
