    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    You weren't fired for filing a grievance...or I wouldn't have a job. You were fired for attendance??

    They told you they intended to fire you. Why would you not file in a timely fashion?
    Issued intent to discharge in February
    Discharged in March
    Seeking help in April
    My best advice is that you pick up the pace

    That kind of goes "part and parcel".... with an attendance problem.

    Hope it works out.

    Other than attendance, if you have a good work record.... you might get a "bite of the apple".

    Either way, let us know what happens.

    It could be a lesson, for all.

    You are done. I am not sure why they are even hearing the grievance. Made three of those calls already this year...

    Because he didn't come to work to file with his steward.

    Seen the same thing here except the shop steward never filed the grievance given to him by the driver. Although it wasn't for attendance but something small. Driver is gone. Couple years later they canned the shop steward for something and he never came back.

    I would suggest in such an extreme situation as a discharge greivance the employee would be a little more adamant in making sure it got signed off on with a copy for themselves at the very least.

    Um, not necessarily.

    His Local and the company agreed to meet.... when they didn't have to.

    Let's see what happens.

    Could you clarify what you mean by that ?

    It gives the impression (as a "package center") manager....

    You have full-time drivers being discharged, and filing un-timely grievances.

    Help me out.

    Would've,could've,should've.....hindsight is 20/20, he handed it off to his steward and thought it would be taken care of. Oh well I hear he is much happier now,imagine that.

    We have a guy works PT and always get fired for simple stuff. He always come back and probably holds a record for the most fired employee at our center. We also had a guy that did not hit inside delivery and was fired for that.

    Hope everything works out for ya Mannymake if not there is always a job hiring smily faces [emoji652]️
