Mock Mediation Roleplay #8 (continued)

Tool Box

College Flex-Time

You are a support person in the Admissions Office. You have been there almost two years. You had a lot of input into decision-making in your last job. When you try to offer suggestions here, Robin does not listen or seem to care. You are used to having flexibility in your job description and in your hours. Recently, you offered to work late on Mondays and Tuesdays in order to come in late on Thursdays. You proposed this because: 1) you want to take a special class on Thursday mornings, 2) Monday and Tuesday are the busiest days and 3) students might appreciate having extended business hours. However, you did not have a chance to give your reasons. Robin was very short with you, immediately saying that it would not be possible, and you have been reluctant to bring it up again. You were talking with friends about this problem, and they suggested mediation. You thought it was a great idea. You like the work the other staff here. You do not know Robin well, but are willing to be open-minded.
