    Good Morning, would be very interested in your thoughts. Back on 8/06/2018 i was walked out of the building for forging a doctors note. Since then my shop steward has communicated with the District Manager and asked him if I was a NFW to return. The District manager said no but didnt really want to talk about it at that time. My status on UPSERS is suspended. Every week it is updated to reflect the suspended status. I still have my UPS ID's all my uniforms. I ran into our Office manager the other day and she told me i was still on all the active employee lists. Has anyone ever heard of a suspension lasting this long and do you have any thoughts on when they plan to bring me back IF they plan on it. My second question is to be officially terminated to I have to be brought to the panel? thank for your time and thoughts.

    I thought there were only 1, 3, or 5 day suspensions.

    Forged a doctor's note??? I would have thought that would have been fired for dishonesty.

    You never talked with your BA? I would believe that when they walk you out, you are terminated. Did they sit you down with a steward and tell you you were terminated before walking you out? Did you file a grievance on the termination? Did you have a panel hearing?

    The office has to do time cards for everyone on the books, every day, whether it’s vacation, sick, lay-off, whatever. They are coding you in as suspended for whatever reason. You’re still on the books but that doesn’t mean you’re getting your job back.

    I did have a local level panel hearing they sided with UPS. I just find it odd that they would keep coding me off as suspended for 9 months. that seems odd

    No employee is worth suspending for 9 months. You've been terminated.

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

    Did you file a grievance? Have you had any hearings? Panel? This doesn’t add up

    Sounds to me, like you are just coded wrong in the system.

    You said you went to a local level hearing.

    After that, you should have known what the status of your employment was.

    Proven dishonesty for falsifying a doctors note ?

    You're not on a suspension. If you were.... you'd know it.

    Not if you were terminated for dishonesty....

    Some supplements call for that.... in a progressive disciplinary situation.

    Not for cardinal offenses.

    What did the doctors note say?

    Did the doctors note that you allegedly forged have anything to do with UPS...like restrictions, return to work...anything?

    I would think if the OP was terminated the company would get moist and get the champagne glasses out soon after the "termination". It appears they haven't done that and, no, I don't think it's a "mistake".
