there is going to be a bus stike in london on tueday. im 26 weeks pregnant. it would take me about 90 mins to walk it. plus 90 mins back. plus inbetween i will be working its quite physical and don't get any breaks. i work in a school kitchen lots of running about... so i was thinking if i should take the day of... i dont have money for a cab having a skint week
That sounds really tough ghostspirit. Do you mean take annual leave, throw a sickie or speak to your boss and see if you can be absent from work that day? I do wonder about the breaks situation though, surely you're entitled to them, your employers have to consider the health and safety implications of your pregnancy and needing breaks seems like a reasonable request.
I think it'd hard to advice without knowing the circumstances so these suggestions may be impractical or irrelevant but could you take a train for part of the journey or get a lift? I was also wondering if you know how all the other staff at the school will be getting in that day, would there be potential for sharing a taxi? Would your employers be willing to pay for a taxi if they were faced with many of their staff being able to get in otherwise?
i dont get breaks only work from 11-2.30 euphemia there wont be a nearest one as such as thats my nearest one so it would end up further away.
i dont get holiday/leave that has to be taken in the school holidays.. i dont know anyone to get a lift from... there was talk about a taxi share and nothing came of the convo... maybe i can bring it up tomorrow.
i wont take a sickie i will just be honest.
i dont know maybe i could try find the money for a cab... maybe do it one way. walk to work but cab back
on the way there i could get a train. its more on the way back im worried about because of the school run. i would not make it in time and i dont have the support system where i have any sort of help.i guess i will find out more tomorrow.
I'm disabled, and don't know what I am going to do. Companies are not obliged to assist disabled employees get to work, so doubt they will help you out. The TFL website is particularly unhelpful. It gives the names of the companies who may go on strike, but not the route numbers
thats not good enjorasdream there are only 7 of us where i work. we based in southeast london/kent boarder... one driver lives closer to london. opposite direction to me... the other driver does not come no where near me either. 5 of us are going to have problems. so dont know what will happen find out one way or another i guess.
