We have a cowork in our area that gets a lot of favoritism. If it gets slow and they start sending people home, she goes, because she is the only one asked. If she wants to stay late she can do that too. If she wants a day off without using an option day she gets it. She is pretty buddy buddy with the sup. She brings cookies for the part time, full time, and the general full time sup, or puts a box of cookies in the sup office. She always has food and the sups expect it from her. Honestly, she has more seniority than me. I don't want to leave early, and I stay about as late as I can. I'm not the grieved person here. My other coworker I work closely with has more seniority and did try to file. She really didn't word her grievance well. She talked to the general manger and the union steward. Then the GM came to her and said,"if you file that grievance you're fired." This can't be right. I can file a grievance for someone being ugly, but being ugly isn't breaking any articles. So it would just get thrown out... Why intimidate her not to file if there isn't any problem. She actually did cave and not file. But I feel like where there is smoke there is fire. If management doesn't want her to file they must be doing something wrong. Today she brought cookies again. I feel like this is bribery. I bet she gets Friday off for her son's football game, with no write up. And, our hub has said e-cigs are equal to regular cigs and must be used out side, but she still carries it around and tugs on it while working. So do I file a grievance for this? if so how/for what? Is this an HR issue? if it is then there is nothing I can do because HR promotes clique behavior at our hub. Should I call UPS helps?
