    In the SoCal Region, been at UPS for 15+ years, 2 as a 22.3 combo.

    Had always heard that 'only your home center can write you up for attendance' and indeed, I had never seen a combo get a first half write up.....until now.

    I was written up (just a 'talk to') for missing first half BUT coming into 2nd half, which first half claimed was a 'tardy.' MY home center supervisors (both FT & PT) werent even aware of it and laughed at me. The Shop Steward that was present basically said nothing and afterward the BA i called told me to file a grievance on it.

    So im confused.

    Can anyone elaborate?

    Do what the BA says and file a grievance, sounds like it will be swept under the rug so to speak.

    What you heard is not contractual.

    Any management person can write you up for anything, at any time.

    And, you have a right to file a grievance.... at anytime for anything.

    Listen to your BA.

    Thats what im about to do. Apparently the PT supervisor (19 yr old punk @ss) has been telling other employees about my disciplinary action, like bragging about it. Sounds like harassment to me.

    They got me for 10 tardys; EG missed first half came to home center = 1 tardy. I hardly take advantage of it, unlike others. Feels like discrimination IMO

    I have been combo for 17 years and I can tell u we have such a unique set of circumstances in these jobs but have no separate language to refer to.so most of everything pertaining to us is gonna be b.a and labor manager agreements.i can tell u in the south only ur home sort has ur employee records so ur second sort cant even veiw ur attendance.curious why u would grieve a verbal though not much to grieve.

    Doesnt progression START with the verbal warning, thus next step is 1,3,5 day suspension. Why let them get the ball rolling?

    In the south and once again there is no language saying this but the practice is dont work first half cant work second half.its not always enforced though.

    So in your region, if you miss home center, you cant work the other half?

    Here, from observation, since our home center is the 2nd half, most miss 1st but come to 2nd
