In the home directory of each user on the local workstation you can  
have a $HOME/.sge_request file that automates default requests to qsub  
and other submission tools.

If each user had a .sge_request file with the following contents:

-q workstations@<hostname>

Then all they would have to do is "qsub ./myscript.sh" and the default  
request would be applied with no extra typing required.
