    I have never had a felony but just wondering if you do have a felony record and ups mgmt catches wind of it, is it enough to fire you for if you have done nothing wrong on ups time. A supervisor lied about me in a letter to another supervisor that i was a felon. I was fired the next day coincidance ?

    If you lied on your application and get caught in that lie they very well can (and should) terminate you; however, if you have done nothing wrong and were fired based upon false accusations, you should file a grievance for unjust termination, seeking not only your job back but back pay as well. Good luck.

    Thanks upstate, My local union is working my case and i'm optimistic I will be reinstated with back pay, And hopefully the supe will be dis-missed.

    So they just fire people because someone said you were a felon? Without doing a background check to confirm, that just seems very suspect and easy to fire anyone.

    If what you are saying is true, THAT YOU NEVER HAD A FELONY RECORD, and you got fired because a supervisor said you did, I would contact a lawyer ASAP and sue that supervisor for liable/slander. Maybe the company too. Back pay would not be enough for me. You slander my name and reputation like that and you will pay for it.

    I cant prove i was fired because the supe said i was a felon, i'm sure it played a part.

    Good memory jones, I was fired for harassment & Stalking and i went to court and those 2 charges were dropped by the prosecution, Because the supe had credibility issues, and the supe wrote a letter to a mgr telling him i was a felon, More lies. this same mgr. fired me. Coincidance ??

    I've always wondered if often you have to dig the truth out of the people you're representing as a steward.

    hey 407 i guess the prosecutor thought i left out stuff to. They just couldn't prove it. What does it matter? The end result was a $97.00 trespassing citation.

    You are innocent until proven guilty. My advice is to try to get a written copy of the letter that stated you were a felon. You might have to get a lawyer to subpoena the memo.

    Oh yea most people won't tell you everything. They think if they lie to us then its not that bad. The thing is it makes us all look bad when they do lie.

    There will be no apologies. You can bet on that.
