hi guys, i just file my first grievance and wanted to know what im in for. once all the paperwork goes through, is it like a trial or something? will all members of management be there with my steward? i filed because i have 6 months of seniority and have asked to be moved to the preload and they keep me unloading trailers. everyday, when someone from the preload calls in sick, they move an employee with less seniority than me to replace them for the day. my supervisors say that they 'want me to prove myself' unloading trailers and then when they feel like i've done a good job, then they'll use me in the preload. i talked to the center of management and he said the same thing. so i filed. my shop steward doesn't really like me though, he says hi to people except me and when i say hi, he ignores me. is this going to be a problem? how should i dress when i go? should i bring a lawyer? what should i expect? if i lose, can i file again? what happens if i lose? will i get fired? do you think ill lose?
