Hi all, I was looking for some information and stumbled upon this forum. I know most of you are far more experienced in the was of UPS that I am, and I'm hoping some of you could give me some advice with a situation I'm having. I'm a part-time package handler and I have a little over two years seniority (two years in April). My area's supervisor was looking for a few people to help out in a different area during this past peak season. I agreed to help and was told by my part-timer that they would no longer need my help once peak was over. I'll be honest, my regular job is a bit easier than the job I do when I'm helping and I'd like to no longer be sent away. It's almost August and I'm still being sent a few times a month. I've talked to my current p/t sup (the one that told me it was a peak-only situation no longer works for the company) and f/t sup as well as my dept manager, and I keep getting the "we understand, and we'll do what we can to help" responses but I still keep getting called away. I was basically told that once I became certified in the position, I could be sent at anytime. So does being certified to work in a different area mean that you have no choice but to go when they call for extra help? I feel like my last option would be to involve the union, however, I've never really dealt with the union before and I don't know that they would be able to resolve my issue. And if not, would I end up making myself a target for management? I guess my question is basically, should I get my union steward involved or keep waiting for my supervisors to do what they say they will? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
