“Stint work shifts” allow those workers to leave work early if their tasks are completed but still get paid in full.
Let's examine this a little deeper.
A good leader always knows history. DID THE MAYOR CHECK TO SEE WHAT THE ORIGIN OF THE "STINT WORK SHIFT" WAS?
Everything in a contract evolves from a previous situation. I would BET that the origin of the "stint work shift" was the following:
COMPLAINING BUSINESS OWNERS.
In short, it most likely was the business community who screamed at a previous Mayor to get those smelly, large, dirty, obnoxious GARBAGE TRUCKS AWAY FROM MY BUSINESS DURING PEAK BUSINESS HOURS. It doesn't go well with lunch or my pretty little boutique. The trucks also make for a nice CLOG in front of our stores between 12 noon and 4pm.
I can hear them screaming right now in my time machine, "Oh, Mr. Previous Mayor - can you not do something to get those dirty trucks and dirty men away from our customers, parking spaces and buildings? YOU ARE COSTING MY BUSINESS MONEY!"
Have no fear business people - Mr. Previous Mayor has a solution. I will get those dirty men and smelly trucks off of the street before it can effect your business.
I will make them a deal, start early, hustle your ass, finish up and beat it.
Until 2009 that is.
Mayor Sottile has now decided that those days are over and has even been quoted saying that, “It just doesn’t make sense.”
This should be good. I just hope that they don't forget to wash up before lunch. Maybe now they can even dine in one of those fine restaurants with the rest of the lunch crowd.
Know history or you are doomed to repeat it.
