Negotiable Instruments

It's been a while since I last posted for this blog. There are a lot of things going on but mostly about my kid. One non-kid related update is that I am rethinking my resignation. I already signified my intention to leave Sutherland because of the developments in my family. My dad's condition is making my mom extra stressed and she can't be 100% on top of things in our family biz. So I have to help out. Hence I resigned.

A few days ago, my boss told me that our site director would want to float some ideas so that I can stay on. I told them that I did not resign to negotiate because I really did not want to resign in the first place if the circumstance was different. I was told that they are willing to give me a more flexibile schedule so that I can also fulfill my family duties. I was thinking of having a 4x11 schedule, still 40 hours of work but 3 days off. I said that to optimize that, my rest days should be on a weekday. My boss was amenable to that. That made me cheerup a bit. But this schedule would mean that I will be working 7 days a week, 4 for Sutherland, and 3 for our family biz. With this much stress, I said I should at least be compensated comensurately for it. My only request is that if I am going to assume the role of team manager or assistant program manager for our program, I should have a higher salary than the highest paid supervisor, at least. Otherwise, I will not be working 7 days a week with the same pay. I know, the other 3 will be in my family but I am not negotiating, they are.

So with that in mind, I negotiate. We'll see come Monday how things will shape up. For those who are reading this, I hope that we keep it to ourselves for now.
