So, I just started within the past month. I've been on probation and, according to my own calculations, I should have gained seniority by the end of next week. The thing is, I got injured on the job. I was following the methods, the injury was more or less unavoidable. The cause of the injury is something that happens to all of us from time to time, and this time, it just happened to happen to me and resulted in a broken bone. When I spoke with the manager at my hub in the office, I was first told that I would be relieved of my employment after the worker's comp process was completed. Fair enough. I know a thing or two about business, and I know it doesn't make sense to hold the position of someone who hasn't even passed probation yet and is unable to work. No hard feelings, just disappointment. The next night, I brought some papers from my appointment at the provider's office in, and the same person who told me I would be relieved of my employment then told me that I'd be kept on. Naturally, I became cautiously optimistic but a bit confused at the same time. Well, I haven't worked for over a week, and now, to add to the confusion, I got a Teamsters member ID card in the mail along with a "Welcome to the Union" letter. I'm sure I'll receive some clarity on the matter this coming week, but I'd still like to hear people's opinions. Am I being jerked around by management (I haven't been given any reason to believe they'd do that...yet)? Am I somehow in the union, or do they always send these cards out prematurely? Should I be looking for another job at this point, or if I have been offered TAW does that mean they're serious about keeping me?
