    Thread title says it all. Dishonesty for doing something a supervisor has told me to do before.

    Ouch, goes to show everyone that you should work according to the methods, and let management explain in grievance hearing why they want you to work the other way. It also puts it on record that they want you to work that way. I bet, however, that it would never go that far.

  5. I remember my first day driving as an air driver, my sup told me I could sheet packages before the commit time and then deliver them after. A year ago or so they started giving people unpaid vacations for that. I wasn't lucky enough to get one.

    A sup will never put anything like that in writing. So always ask them to do so and they can do nothing to you for not following those (verbal) instructions.

    Business signed before all packages were scanned. Then left. Stop complete got accidentally pressed. Scanned remaining packages and put POS instead of getting a second signature.

    Was told during a ride out. So hopefully some digging will prove it.

    Proof of signature. Since I had already told then their total count just happen to mess up on the diad.

    Are they saying you were padding your stop count? Did you dup that second stop? Do you run bonus?

    So, a sup told you to enter "Pos" in the signature field? Has this sup told others this as well? If so, you have a nice case for an attorney.

    We once had a sup who was telling new drivers that they didn't have to get signatures, they could just write "on file" because ups had all our customers signatures on file. He no longer works here.
