To be honest, the way we`ve been shafted on wages, it`s becoming a real problem paying the extra fuel costs. The closer you get, the better.

I know that there are TO's who are probably over the limit, but providing that Google maps or something similar says its possible to do it in an hour, no probs. Question is, with fuel rising again, the Government doing nothing about it, the poor wages we are on, who can afford to :?: :3s: :3s:

Ah ha a subject close to me heart, When I first joined the service, To my delight they posted me 79 miles from my home, and Yes I did apply for a closer outstation. Now anyone in their right mind will be able to see, That by following the legal speed limit There is NO way I could possible travel that distance in an hr even on a clear day. When HR was informed of this, I was told it didn't really matter. When I turned up, I even found someone travelling even further than me by about 15 miles. Luckly I was able to transfer to an outstation closer to home, Now i only have 50 miles each way to travel, but hell its a milage cut I guess. I can also travel this is less than an HR Providing the Motorway is open. Unlike today so It took me over 2 hrs to get home :)
Before you get up your hopes for a transfer, I have had a transfer request in for an outstation that is only 5 miles from my house, But in another region, for over 2 yrs, So it looks like thats not going to happen, However another outstation has just opened 22 miles from me, New outstation, recruting people, Told to put my transfer in ASAP from the big bosses, and guess what...... Nadder, Nothing , not a sodding word. Guess despite all the promises the only chance you have of getting a transfer is when the HA needs to move you. Otherwise You are stuck. But Hey, I'm not Bitter Honest Guv ;)

With the struggle to recruit in some areas the one hour rule has gone in all but hollow words. :?
