Hey BC members. I am currently a part time loader. I asked my part time sup if he needed me to come in to work on Friday night because I was informed by another coworker that the supervisor sends him home about 50% of the time(against his preference) on Fridays because there is not enough work for him. The supervisor told me to just show up on Friday and we'll see if he needs me. I rebutted by saying that it is a 30 minute drive to work and back and if he doesn't need me then he needs to let me know prior to me blowing $7 on gas just to be sent home. I have no problem coming in on Friday. I just do not think it's right to have me come in if he will send me home anyways. He said that a lot of people don't show up everyday so he doesn't know. I find that to be unacceptable. If I show up on Friday and he tries to send me home I would just like to know if the union will back me up and get me my 3 and a half hours. It seems to me that they will back me up but I'm just trying to cover all my bases by asking the pros here on BrownCafe. Thanks!
