Currently, my center is having some difficulty with extra work in the preload. A friend of mine who has 3+ years of seniority is routinely made to stay after their trucks are loaded, and help others. All well and good, except the supervisors allow many other people on the belt to leave. Newer people. Slow people. That individual complained to their supervisor that lower seniority people were being let go first. Subsequently, they were moved off of their position, and put into a harder position, where they will be the last person to finish. (In their eyes, alleviating the issue of that person not wanting to assist at the end of the day.) This seems highly retaliatory. Is this permissible? We do not have bid areas for the preload. My understanding of the contract is that it is only when overtime is hit, when extra work is by seniority. As per this: This is in local 710, if it matters. What are this person's options, with regards to the union?
