I requested a 8 hr day properly for 1-7-08 and was not denied. My Daughter had a school activity. I told my superviser in the morning I may need help. By 3:30 I sent a message of the work I needed to loose and who could help. Many messages were exchanged. The two drivers that I suggested could help were both in when I came in. The Manager instructed me to go back out and deliver the 8 stops I brought back. I told him I had to pick up my daughter. After a series of questions and getting a shop steward he went from warning letter to discharge in 5 minutes. I have now lost 4 days of work. Today I got word I will be back to work on Monday but the discipline given will be a 4 day suspension. My grievance will be heard to recover the 4 days pay. Does anyone have the new language or what the article (policy) really means. Any input in this situation is welcomed.
