Some of my coworkers were told this morning that they will no longer be recieving a travel allowance, we get $90 per pay plus mileage or you can get a higher milage rate. They are losing their minds, how can we stop this, what are we going to do, can we grieve it?
The positons they are in used to require a vehicle and they had to do home visits, they were also told that they no longer have to do home visits and actually have to get a home visit approved by a supervisor if they feel it is necessary. The home visits stop today, but they will still get their $90 biweekly for 6 months.
Not one of them has mentioned that now they have the ability to car pool, and most of them live in the same area, how they don't have to go into homes they feel uncomfortable in and will still be getting this payment for 6 months when they are not using their vehicle.
