This is more of a request than a question directed to ULM and company.
When will the employees of LLNL be able to see their ranking order for the RIF, assuming a UNIT is a four digit classification in any one organization such as NIF, NAI, Weapons, CMS, etc.
Each employee should by now been ranked from ( most senior to least senior ) in their four digit classification in each directorate. Any employee should be able to pull up an excel spreadsheet in LAPIS that reveals this information. The spreadsheet should show (all ) classifications at LLNL and how each person ranks in that classifiaction so each employee can see their peeking order. By allowing employees to view this spreadsheet each employee could get a feel for how long they have left at LLNL before they’re axed and prepare their future accordingly; instead of it being a surprise at the last minute.
The spreadsheet should be on a secure server where only LLNL employees with an employee number and password can check in. This vital information needs to be readily available at any time and updated on the fly, so as lesser senior people exit LLNL the spreadsheet reflects those changes immediately showing those who remain, just how much closer they are in the pecking order. This could easily be done by tying the requested LAPIS spreadsheet into the badge office and PAF database so even as individuals are transferred between directorates, it would result in their immediate re-ranking within that directorate. Since RIF's are done by seniority the employees start date is all that's needed to be rerank them no matter where they are assigned.
Wouldn't you, ULM, if you were in our boat want the same information available to you so you could have a chance to prepare for the inevitable? There should be no secrets from the employees if the goal of LLNS is to have an open society of employees who don't fear or distrust management.
Since lay-offs are going to be a continual event for years to come especially as the budgets decline , could you please consider my request?
