LLNL security staff using favoritism to hire new SPO's ?

LLNL security staff using favoritism to hire new SPO's ?

SPO's that left for other DOE sites due to getting laid off because of de-inventory have applied for their old jobs and are not getting hired. Security managers are hiring their friends and putting them through all the required training at a high cost. Meanwhile current Q cleared certified SPO's are left in the wind. Another epic failure of money mismanagement.

This is against laboratory policy to use favoritism. But is widespread.

You know when the "nobody cares" hall monitor chimes in, LLNS is worried their questionable management practices are being exposed.

If the OP has any real evidence of this, as opposed to baseless rumor, I'd encourage them to report it to the DOE Inspector General.

Otherwise, STFU.

Did those who attempted to re-hire at the lab subject to any restrictions they may have signed before leaving the lab? Incentives were paid to a set of PSO's that were tied to the Superblock to stay on while it was being emptied. Did that incentive pay have any restrictions on rehire?

I know that on the VSIP of 2013 part of the agreement you signed was that you were in-eligible for any sort of re-employment for a year.

gotta keep jobs local. too many local young folks our kids and grandkids; men,women, of color, LGBT are out of work here.

getting them entry into local jobs is good. having the trained immigrants return home with a skill set learned during their visit to California is also good, technology transfer.

The only way to get a job is by knowing someone. Why would LLNL be any different ? @ 6:31 AM be careful what you ask for, sometimes it comes true.

If reemployment privileges were not waived upon their departure (severance package requirements) where does the AD for SHRM stand on this? Were the prerequisite steps (rehire priority, etc.) for these job postings skipped?
Shouldn't be difficult to determine.

No, they had 1 year recall under their CBA

Everyone in the entire department that wore a uniform along with CAS operators were pain bonus money. No restrictions for rehire. Even those that new they would keep their jobs got paid.

No VSIP, SPO's had a CBA

What official response are those that were laid off receiving from LLNS on this matter? Can this be partially corrected or is it too late?

Anonymous said...

Didn't the Director gives these laid off PSOs a "special thanks" for their collective service last year? Seems like a set of LLNS managers dropped the ball here, but does it amount to a policy violation or just another employee morale deflator?

Zero official response. Morale has always been low in PFD. When you have a supervisor volunteer to drop down to a SPO that says alot.

Overpaid guards (the highest in the complex for a Cat 3 facility)who have a very strong collective bargaining unit..NOT!! Chucky baby is gone DEAL with it!! Get a job on the outside of the Lab...right? Oh wait, most come back after they realize what the real world is like.

Only the sub-pars will return only to be heralded for having outside real world experience.

One former PSO is now the HEAF Facility Manager, a position formerly held successfully by graduates with Master Degrees.

No PhD, MS, or BS

A bold B-Division decision
