    You are not entitled to be at a grievance hearing during your work hours.

    A less than 8 hr air job was awarded to a preloader who has more senority than me by 4 months. I have over 10 years as an air driver. I said it should be awarded as a driving job and not a preload job.
    I was told i lost and he got it
  11. Sorry. Seniority wins.

    Guess im screwed. Didnt get to be there for the grievance and still have to pay union dues!
  14. I understand that. Bit he has more building seniority than you. Maybe you will get lucky and he won't qualify. Then they will have to put the bid back up again.

    Your union dues give you the right to file a grievance. What information could you have added to this case? Your BA can handle this without you.
    • Agree Agree x 2
    • Optimistic Optimistic x 1
    • List
  17. Now if they was trying to fire you or suspend you, that's a different story.

    Did you request, to be present ?

    Grievance hearings, should not be scheduled during a members working hours.

    (And I could provide a wall of text on this issue)

    Communication with your BA is essential.

    Not really.

    I would never here a case like this.... without the member being present.

    Trying to terminate or discipline an employee "off the clock" ??

    UPS would sure try. :biggrin:

  19. No S* they would try .
