    After working about 5 months I'm positive I made my 30 working days but was never notified about it or about when i could join the union. In my 30 working days there were 2 days I missed due to being sick. Last Friday, I had a family member dealing with a mental disorder and could not clock in to work. (Yes, I'm not going to risk losing a family member for a job.) The call out number was not working so I texted my supervisor.( The last time I called out the call out number was not working so I texted him saying I would be sick) We work in the AM and I did not want to call in case he was sleeping. At the end of my message I asked what the start time for Monday (today) would be and never received a response so I did not come in as the start times are given to us for the next work day at the end of the current work day. Am I fired? Is there anything I can do to attempt to get my job back? I tried to call human resources but I cannot find a number anywhere.

    So you didn't show up today either??? It is your responsibilty to find out your start time. Pick up the phone and call who cares if he is asleep do you want your job?

    Get with your Union Steward or Business Agent. UPS can not fire an employee until they go through the Union.

    Three no call, no show is grounds for job abandonment. Get to work.

    News to me. They fire people all the time for the silliest reasons. Keeping them fired is a different story.

    You know what I mean. Termination requires a Union representative be with you when you are notified and then the Union files a protest. You are not terminated until the grievance process is played out.

    Above all don't sit around waiting for them to call you and say you're fired----get your butt to work. They will let you know whats going on and then you can proceed with a plan of action

    I know what you mean but it sounds like this kid is clueless and needs some backup.
