After several months of near aneurysm-inducing bureaucratic nonsense and leaping through union-mandated flaming hoops I've almost got what I wanted out of this job. The official posting for my revised, three days a week, job was posted this afternoon. I'll be "applying" for the position tomorow.
The union rules demand the position be posted for seven days, so I'll have one more week at my current wage and hours. Fortunately it is a short week anyway.
