Our company is switching software for our management systems. We will be training with coworkers from this other city who get to go home each night.
We have two locations in our area, and the company is telling us that we are to close our offices and all of our staff are required to travel three hours away with two overnight stays to be trained on the new system. We do not work in an industry that typically requires business travel so none of us agreed to travel when we accepted our jobs.
