This is Big Stuff. A.J. is Walk the Walk. How many of you Talk the Talk, but are so scared of retribution that that is all you have the courage to do. TALK. Anonymously.
I don’t think I told you the best part of the Board meeting. This is the part that got all the bigwigs at CCCCCCCk in a twist and the part I’m getting heat for. When I finised my statement I fielded several questions from the Board members. One of them point blank asked me if technicians at my employer were performing duties that only a pharmacist can per the rules and regs. Well, what was I supposed to do? I wasn’t going to lie so I said the only thing I could…Yes, they were. It’s true and I have more proof than anyone would care to look at. He asked me why and I said that’s the companies policy and how they’ve set it up. This has made it all the way to the president of PBM operations. I’m quite popular at CCCCCCCk! It also prompted a visit from the Director of PBM Quality in San Antonia to make a special trip up to talk with me.
Right now I’m very unpopular in PBM Operations. I unloaded everything I know onto the Director of Quality. We will see what she does with it. If it’s nothing them I’m prepared to go to the Board.
Last comment from A.J. Yesterday. CCCCCCCC, as in CCC-CCCCCCCC. That company uses FORCE to get what they want. If any pharmacist actually acts like a professional and uses discretion, they go ape-shit. We need CCC pharmacists to join the guerrilla action and we need you to do it NOW. That includes former CCC RPhs. Kelly, are you up for this? So many of these top-heavy companies have their ass squarely on the fence. Refresh y0urself with the historical/political basis of the Humpty Dumpty story. Recall, “But the emperor has no clothes”. It will take so little to push them off their high-horse and watch them tumble.
The big retailers and PBMs must be smoking something. It is incredible how vulnerable they are. A.J. cannot do it alone (And.. he was all alone on Monday). Now, CCCCCCCC is coming after him. How can we support him? How can you guerrillas make a move? We have to start winning and the time has never been better. Talk to us.
Woo! Hoo! Word travels fast! Had a 2.5 hour meeting with my Director and Human Resources this afternoon.
I guess the count down is on to see how long I keep my job!
Any bets? A.J.
