I would do the following:

1) try to do as much of the work that will secure your job for as long as possible. So, if dispatch is something that would be the last to cut, do your best to get that work done.

2) look for another job – keep your options open, you may need a more stable company

3) I think it’s fine to ask them, but just make sure that you go in there with the attitude that you want to do whatever you can to maintain your position in the company, you love to work there, etc. etc.

Keep your head up and your options open!

I wouldnt ask if your job is in danger. 

What I would do is ask for a meeting and to very clearly and articulately explain how you see the new policies and procedures and how they are hindering your productivity. But dont just complain. Offer a new alternative. Tell them which things work and provide better information etc, and which ones are not so productive. Offer new policies or efficiencies etc.

Ask for their help in allocating your time to the different activities and what is the priority on any given day or hour.

Get in the habit if you have too much to do to ask your boss “I have # hours of “blank” to do and I still need to do blank, which is the higher priority?”

@lefeymw: This!

Yea, I would NOT ask if your job is in danger, that might just tick them off.
