    Got written up for calling out a month ago was given a warning letter
    I'm really needing to call out this morning.
    My question is what will happen if I pull the trigger.

    Did your warning letter say something like;

    "Failure to correct this problem, will result in further disciplinary action up to

    and including discharge."

    Something to think about. There is a reason.... they warn you.

    Yes but it's been a whole month.
    So if I call out I'm fired?

    I can't get fired.
    What if I text my sup and ask beforehand if they will fire me if I can't make it

    Just call in today, worst case scenario you will be suspended for one day(yay another day off ).

    9 month wait here if they have given you a warning letter on attendance before you supposedly can call in again.

    policy here is a 9 month wait before you can go over 3 occurrences for 90 days. You can call in, just keep it under 3 for 90.

    Progression here is document -> warning letter -> suspension -> pending term

    Most pending terms I've ever seen racked up consecutively is 5+. Guy ended up quitting.

    Hey, let's punish the guy who is calling out by giving him another day off! I'm sure that'll teach him!

    You would think some of these people would learn the call off procedures and policies or ask their union leadership

    Is calling in the same as calling in sick?

    I called in sick once (an HR before my shift as per the handbook) and still got a write-up. I now have 100+ sick hours and I'm afraid to use them.

    Yet I see some call in or call in sick once a month and get away with it

    Generally I think they play favorites. OP, They just hate you.

    Are you generally on time and do decent work? Are you full of excuses about why you can't make it to work once or twice a month?

    So, you have 100+ sick hours and you are afraid to use them

    I think I’ve heard it all now
