I started working on the preload loading box cars in the beginning of this past August. After working for about two months or so and being a "good employee", on time everyday, following proper methods, etc., my supervisor has asked me to stay home on two occasions. The more recent time happened like this. I received a text at 3 AM saying "I need you to take the day off." I asked why and he said he had "waaaaaayyyy too many people" in that morning. I then said "I would like to work 3.5 hours can I come in later?" and his final reply was "I can't send home people with higher seniority, you need to stay home today." This seems to be a cut and dry violation of the "3.5 hours a day" rule in section 5 of article 22 on the union contract in the sticky on this forum. Does this contract apply to me considering my hire date? If not, where can I find the written rules for my minimum daily work hours? EDIT: I noticed I posted this in the wrong forum, meant to post it in the union forum can a moderator move it please?
