    We have nobody to to do split out at the end of the night. Our FT sup has been forcing the entire sort to stay after we're done to go and clean up all the missorts. I talked to a steward about it and was told that he doesn't have the power to do that. I've always been told that split is voluntary. Next day FT sup hits me with the I'm the boss do what I say or I'll terminate you. He brought another steward over who told me I have to stay and work as instructed. Is this for real?

    Job abandonment, if you leave before it is time for you to leave.

    We have no set quit time, our quit time is when the work is done.

    You stay until all work is done. What is so hard to to understand about that?

    Many many jobs that is. It the case. They get to leave at a set time to leave and they leave.

    It’s one of the larger negatives of ups as a job

    This must be a difficult time for you. Don’t hesitate to reach out to friends and family to tell them how being told to do your job makes you feel.

    So you're upset that you have to clean up the miss sorts that you sent.

    Sorry but the sup can make all you miss sorters stay and help so make sure you bring a lunch because you're going no where.

    Agree but if the whole sort is being forced there isn't much he can do about it.
