A few days after I go my part-time seniority, I was written up for misloads. To be fair and honest, I think that it is important to do well and make the drivers day as easy as possible. I think on some level, I may have deserved the write up. I wasn't exactly a new employee, but I have proven to have made significant changes within the following months and I think that I was still trying to get my act together. Which I did do in time. It has probably been about nine months since that happened and I do have a few questions. I am still slightly concerned however. Getting written up for misloading itself isn't what I have grown to be concerned about. It's that I have realized that they took advantage of what little I knew regarding my rights, being part of the union. My supervisor came to me, told me I was being written up, advised me to sign and gave me no warning letter. I signed and haven't heard anything about it since. Weren't they supposed to give me a warning letter first? I know now that I could have refused to sign and asked for my steward, which I what I would have done. How long does that stay on my record? I'm in the pacific northwest and we have a very strong local here. I have no worries at all. My only concern is that I feel like they took advantage of what I didn't know. Welcome to UPS, right? Anyhow, I have become very pro union since my employment and have been vocal about it. Our contract states that we are able to file a grievance on something within 30 days of the occurrence; in which I keep a log of everything each month that I can file for. It's a way to protect myself from management, as I have made it clear that I am not an ass kisser like some preloaders. I do not plan of filing unless I get a warning letter or write up. Thank you in advance!
