and from what i understand you really have no choice unless it's a safety issue. any one else run into these types of managment slogans from there sups?
very good advice.actually it's better than a slogan and it's a more effective way to utilize your rights.......I have taken several labor related seminars (link follows) and have learned much from others who have "been there done that"..........this is how they walked me through it.....mgt. tells you to do something you disagree with, since it happens all the time and your personal relations skills are not up to par because your PO'd, it leads to a verbal disagreement, things are said, things get heated, you end up doing "whatever" regardless......and lose sight of the original issue, you file the grievence, but part of the battle is already lost because according to mgt. you "became argumentitive" "refused to work as directed" "became insubordinate"......... all of which are debatable....if you "work now, grieve it later/document everything" (as we were taught) it goes down much differently, you demonstrate what rule they violated, mgt. states that yes "whoever" did work as directed, and the violation remains the issue.....
