    Question? I am PT unload and cover driver. On nights I unload, my sup clocks me in and out. Rather he clocks everyone in and out. I never know what my time is. Tonight I went to go tell him I am done and he had already clocked me out? What the heck is this? I asked why they took our time badges and he said some were not clocking in and out properly. Like they would go talk then clock out. Why am I being penalized for other people's mischief? I have never had other people clock in and out for me. It's not fair.

    Talk to your steward. In the meantime, write your start and end times down daily and check that against your paychecks...make sure you are paid for every minute you work.

    Wrong on so many counts. See your union steward (you are a dues paying member aren't you?)

    What is a steward? This is only my second week.

    Nevermind you haven't made book yet. Write down your start and end times. If you tell your sup you're finished, and he already punched you out...ask him to correct it. You should be paid for all time worked.

    A steward is your union rep who will also be one of your co-workers who takes care of Teamster problems between you and the company. After you have been there long enough to get into the Union get to know this person.

    You can go back 90 days on pay errors, if they continue to do that after you qualified, so keep track of your time. Only do this after you qualify, as they can fire you for anything beforehand

    You must work 30 days out of 90 in order to be qualified and become eligible to join the union.

    No, you show up on time, ready to work, punch in, do the job to the best of your ability, punch out, go home.

    Nobody should punch you in and out but you. From day 1. Keep your punch in badge and don't give it up.

    He was never given the badge.

    This sounds pretty illegal to me.

    Our local contract here states you get a badge to punch in and out. Might want to check with your union rep to see if you have same thing. It's illegal for ups not pay for your time worked...no matter 1 day or 30 days or 10,000. I suggest politely bringing this to your management team and your union, together at same time, for witnesses.
