Welp, I finally did it. I had been avoiding it but my frustration has just gone through the roof with my management team. First, I'm a PT hub sorter... been with the company 2.5 years now. I sprained my ankle while working the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I probably wouldn't have gone to the doctor, but I've sprained this ankle multiple times and the swelling was more severe than previous times, so I wanted to make sure it wasn't broken. I went to the doctor the next day (Wednesday) and he said I couldn't work until Monday. I was concerned about my holiday pay since I wouldn't work that night, so I called the office and asked if they would give me an option day so I could get my holiday pay. My manager said yes, provided that I get the note changed to say I could have done light duty (even if the light duty was sitting, doing nothing). I stayed home Wednesday night assuming I'd be just using an option day. I know, I know, I shouldn't have even let it go this far -- he wanted me to get it changed so there wouldn't be another lost-time injury on the sort. I said yes, because I just figured it'd be a you scratch our back, we scratch ours sort of thing. Stupid decision. Monday rolls around, which was my followup day, so I went back to the doctor and was released back to work. I asked him to change the note to say I could have done light duty the Wednesday I originally went. He said he'd get to it. In the meantime, I got my paycheck for the week of Thanksgiving, and surprise, no holiday pay, no option holiday. Great. They screwed me. I finally got the changed note from the doctor and went to my manager to get my pay fixed. He handed it off to a full-time supe who said he'd "get right on it." Next week rolls around, no holiday pay there either. I wait another week and finally get mad and file a grievance. I asked for my holiday pay and any compensatory pay I'm owed for the weeks they didn't correct my pay. My BA calls me the day after I fax it in, and I explained and clarified my story to him. He understood and was in disbelief they had the audacity to try to get me to change my note. He said it should be a pretty open and shut thing -- there's really no excuse for not giving me my holiday pay, especially after I jumped through all their stupid hoops. This was right before Christmas, but I haven't heard back from him since. I'm gonna call him on Wednesday to see if he's made any progress. So I'm here to vent a little bit, but also to ask what to expect? I'm new to the whole grievance thing. Will there be a hearing? I've heard UPS will have grievance hearings in other states so the person grieving won't be able to show and they won't pay -- I'm guessing this is a horror story, but is it out of the question? I just want what's owed to me. I work hard every day and didn't expect to be treated like this.
