Do you need additional tips on how to ask for staffing information? We covered how to use partnership skills to address common hurdles and successfully obtain staffing information.

  • Remind your management partner that the staffing crisis is a joint problem to solve in partnership. To understand your management partner’s pain points, ask questions like, “How’s this short staffing affecting you?” “What’s keeping you up at night around our short staffing?” “If you could fix one thing around our staffing issue, what would it be?”
  • If you encounter resistance and your manager asks, “Why do you need this information?” “Why is this important?” You can answer, “transparency increases trust in the team” and “information helps us create team projects to solve the issue and increase team morale.”
  • If your management co-lead or manager continues not to provide information after repeated requests, calmly but firmly remind them that this is a contractual obligation per our 2021 National Agreement. Remember, you can also raise this in your next UBT meeting with your labor sponsor. Have more questions? Check out more tips here.
