These same men can have words with one of the female employees on the job and then turn right around and walk into the supervisors office and make a statement about her without her ever knowing. Female employees may talk and complain among themselves but most of the time they will simply drop the incident and not realize that the man has gone and talked to his good friend "Charlie. There should never be a time that either a male or female employee is "put down" by someone without having the opportunity to answer back. Face their accusors so to speak. Supervisors should never use the terms "Management," "They," "Someone," "The Men," "I Heard," or "I Understand." — Names should be used at all times. ! realize that no one has a right to expect people (male or female) not to have personal contact with one another on or OFF the job; however, a supervisor (because of his position) should not accept all that is said based on friendship alone or he should just change the s ubject. Persons in higher positions are always speaking of attitudes; of giving 8 hours work for 8 hours pay. These same persons may get here on time (and I know that we all should); they definitely leave on time—but in between—is something elsee These same persons receive one or sometimes even two awards for outstanding job performance (awards always seem to be in secret). I must say that some persons in the higher grade positions who do perform their jobs outstandingly are never recognized. WHY??? Persons in lower grade positions (probably 99% of them are women) are told that they are only performing their job—certainly they are not performing anything outstanding if they do the job to the best of their ability and put all they can into their assigned or unass igned duties. What is so outstanding about performing clerical duties??? "THEY SAY" that if your supervisor does not get along with the Division or Directorate level YOU might as well forget about your supervisor getting any kind of award for his employees— at least that is what "THEY SAY." Concerning absenteeism, be it annual or sick leave, I believe that a person's record should be looked at before that person is labeled as unreliable. (It is terrible to have employees who dread the thought of having to come to work.) The women at our meeting stated that they did not feel anything could be done about the supervisor problem and that we would just have to wait until times change. HOWEVER, I do not feel that this is true. Each one of us is supposed to have qualified for his or her position and we were chosen because of those qualifications. How is it that supervisors who seem to have no talent for handling people and who are so prejudiced in certain areas of thinking are selected to be supervisors? How are they chosen and WHO chooses them??? Perhaps a review of the way they are chosen should be accomplished. Training to me is not the complere answer for I am speaking of attitudes, not schooling. (The above message was an enclosure to a memo that a JSC clerical employee recently sent to her supervisor.)
