With the creation of the CSM grade, operational station staff are now disciplining each other. Increasingly, station staff are divided between grades.
The breakdown of solidarity has led to a culture whereby many staff seem to take it upon themselves to police each other and grass their colleagues up to management for minor performance issues.
No-one likes piss-takers, and if someone isn't pulling their weight at work it does make the job harder for the rest of us. But dobbing them in to management doesn't solve the problem, it just helps create a more disciplinarian culture.
If your colleagues have performance issues, try to support them rather than grassing them up. Remember that we’re all on the same side - the enemy is the real bosses!
