Working on a big project at work I am a Metallurgist, helping out the workers on the shift.
I feel like I am being left out. The workers have recently gone to split shifts. I was never notified directly about the change from management. I heard it threw the workers. At this time a person from the Metallurgical department needs to be present to perform specific tests. I was never notified about the split shift or when to be in to start testing. Good thing I was paying attention!! I talked to the manager. I told him It would be beneficial for the team to have a Metallurgist present when they talk about shifts to make sure everyone is on the same page about when testing needs done. He told me that's why we have this communication board that we are not using right now but everyone is overwhelmed so I have not enforced it. I oversee our furnace department I am not the supervisor. He has gone behind my back and made changes to the department that I have suggested. Without telling me. I feel he has little respect for me and doesn't appreciate what I bring to the table. Am I wrong.
