    Parking at work can anyone advise 7th Feb 18 at 9:28 PM
    HI not sure if anyone can advise but I have a situation at work and didnt know if anyone had more knowledge than me and could advise . When I started my job 9 years ago we had parking and work shifts so great if finishing at unsocial hours . Now we have reduced parking and everyone is fighting for spaces they have decided that we either have to live a certain distance from the building or disabilities , illness etc . Now this wouldnt be so bad but a lot of us due to some start times cannot get the easiest public transport and have to take multiple buses to get there for early morning starts . Thus making our journey to work double or more in time . Also when leaving late at night it is not so nice to be walking around at those times . Due to where we are there is little or no street parking and what there is is some distance to walk again posing a safety risk .
    Our workforce is now divided into the ones that have the parking and ones that dont - also the ones that dont are worse off as have to pay for public transport and have longer days of work due to the travelling . In a nutshell I guess what I am asking is this ok are they allowed to do this . It is making life so difficult for some that they have left . Thanks in advance for any answers

    How far do you live from work?

    It!!!8217;s more fair than the places I!!!8217;ve worked with limited parking. Places I!!!8217;ve worked the parking has been reserved for management only. However there has been street parking available but it!!!8217;s caused problems.

    If you didn't want to ride that far you could get a foldable bike and park around 1 mile away and it will only be a 5 minute ride to work.

    I imagine its full when they arrive.
    Depends on the length of the shift.

    How often to do you do a late shift? Could you agree on an arrangement for these days only?
