    I was issued a warning letter for being 3 miles over my Orion dispatch. I'd like to file a grievance as I was not the only driver over that day. I've never filed before. What would be appropriate wording for this complaint?

  2. Have your Stewart handle it. Try to follow Orion 100% even if it doesn't make sense too.

    Whatever you do don't start backing up turning around to match Orion.

    Be safe. Take the block. It is impossible to safely follow Orion and match its miles.

    The end.

    How can this not be a technological advancement? So why is anyone getting disciplined for it now?

    This can't be real.... If it is, I want a check for all the times I was under ORION miles.

    Dont sweat it. I dont think that is an official warning letter. It doesn't have have the proper format. I would file a harassment grievance.

    Call your BA, the local should have gotten a copy.

    I think I would grieve harassment either way. 3 miles?

    Coworker of mine would just tell management that they adjusted to changing conditions, Ie traffic road construction accident ect

    I somehow managed to do it yesterday.
  16. File a grievance for harassment. (Article 37 Section 1(a) page 128 line 4) The Employer shall not in any way intimidate, harass, coerce or overly supervise any employee in the performance of his or her duties. 3 miles over is BS.

    And an edit here: Any time I drive (I'm a preloader as my primary right now), I always go over what Orion wants as I run air first instead of running it with the route. Most of the drivers in our center do it. Other than that, I follow Orion as much as possible so long as I can stay safe. If they have a problem with me driving safe after being awake at 4:00 in the morning, they can go pound salt.

    Don't sweat the small stuff... We have had guys follow Orion by 95-98% and been over miles by 10-15....don't let them single you out!!
