    I have some tattoos on my arms. For two years I have used compression sleeves to cover them up, no issues. Well after pissing off my SUP, he tells me the next day that I am no longer allowed to wear sleeves, that I have to wear my long sleeve UPS shirt, and that the order came from the TOP. So after 2 weeks of wearing long sleeves in 100+ degree summer heat. My union steward calls and says I'm fine to wear my sleeves. That my SUP was told he couldn't make me wear long sleeves, and he DID IT ANYWAYS.... Suggestions?
     
  2. They are pushing that everywhere. The drivers with tats use make-up if they want to wear short sleeves.

    First and foremost don't lose your job over this...keep your cool! Get the three of you together for clarification....sup says it's ok to wear your sleeves, to you and your good.

    Ya, I understand that. But he lied saying the order came from the top saying I can't wear sleeves. Now my steward tells me that the SUP was told he couldn't make me do that... And he did anyways. I'm just sick of this :censored2:. He did it bc he was :censored2: off at me. This guy is just trying to make my job hell.

    My steward called this morning and told me I was good to go on my compression sleeves again.

    Your supervisor is using the technicalities of UPS's uniform policy.
    It's not grievable and you have to follow center orders.
    If you can come to an agreement with them and the union, that's your best bet.
    If no long sleeves are allowed, gloves and an elbow brace compression can bring the technicalities back in your favor.
     
  7. It is a pile.of crap. For years they never said anything in the Summer months.

    True
    My center looks the other way but when we have Big Ties coming to visit, they go berzerk on appearance.
    Anyone with tattoos showing always have to be prepared for scrutiny.
     
  10. Maybe everyone should show up to work wearing a temporary tattoo.? They would get them going

    :censored2: would hit the fan! I guess on Friday morning when my SUP was told that I was allowed to wear my compression sleeves, he followed me around ALL day in an unmarked car. This guy has it out for me... and I'm not sure why.
     
  12. I would suggest using the tattoo cover up make-up.

    I am sending my fiancé to get some today! Thank you for the advice. I appreciate it.
     
  14. And this shows how little they care about safety. Cool solutions, stay hydrated, wear light colored clothing (that always made me laugh) just CYA and good luck brother

  15. I asked a few drivers what they used. They all said they got it from Sephora.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Why people should use their freaking brains when deciding where to get a tat.

    Hey he chose to drive and chose to get easily visible tats.
     
  18. That's why I never got my old one redone. To show my kids what a tattoo looks like 35 years later.
     
  19. I understand that but they never used to enforce it. I could see if it is something inappropriate or vulgar.....but you know , safety first.

    Hey I was young and dumb. I'm sure you never did anything you regretted later in life.
