Has anyone been or heard of anyone being disciplined for telematics.
Unless there is a supervisor on area observing you do what the telematics system says you are doing wrong even a warning letter won't stand. Telematics has proven to be wrong in many many instances. It is in contract telematics alone you can not be disciplined for. Upstate knows this.
Just do your job. You wont have to worry about telematics,that way
Maybe in right to work states.
"Disciplined for telematics" sounds like a book title. Fiction section I believe.
Customer called in a concern about a driver speeding through a residential section. Telematics confirmed that he was doing 56 in a 35. Driver received a warning letter.
Telematics can't be used solely for discipline but will definitely give the company an idea of what you're doing and if you're worth the time to observe.
The company can give you a warning letter for anything.
They could give you one, for picking your nose.
That doesn't mean it's going to stick.
Always.... protest a warning letter, with a grievance.
The part in Article 37 about "the intent to defraud"....
Was to deter drivers from going "off area", to do personal business.
Too many glitches in the system to discipline. I remember a telematics sheet posted listing all the center's drivers average backing speed. Most were 2-3 mph. Mine was 35. I was hoping they would say something.
My boogers always stick!
