Previous injury a month back... do not want to go completely into depth on this matter in here. I don't know who to go to or what to do. Dealing with main floor manager right now at my UPS pre-load location. Had a leg injury a month ago - fell out the back of a truck. A few people on the line saw it - not sure if they'd remember however.... Told main floor manager, multiple supervisors.... just found out the other day report was never filed! Fell again inside a truck today, after leg had been bothering me again.... Mentioned to a supervisor and they called up the higher ups.... the highest up on the floor told me that we were just going to report for today. Never told them about the fall today... just that leg was still bothering me. They're reporting from today's date not previous - either way, my leg is messed up - they gave me tomorrow off, the weekend and even monday if i need it... but i won't get paid - and i obviously need the job to pay my bills. i am not an unfair person by any means, nor a liar.... i felt uncomfortable today not reporting previous fall.... they said i'd be "taken care of" for just reporting it today. Either way - my main reason to post is to accumulate everyone's personal and professional thoughts on this. I AM IN THE UNION - what should I do from this point on. The safety lady today told me that i "shouldn't go to the doctor." "probably just bruised bad"..... that the clicking and popping is ok... i'll be better soon, rest the weekend.... etc. As a union member.... what should I do. Am I allowed to get opinion of my personal doctor, plus go to their's or do i have to soley go to theirs... and will the doctor work against my health in order to benefit the company? i'm so stressed out - i just want it to feel better.... it hurts putting continued stress on it. i like my job - i'd like to keep working - but if i need a week or two off to recoup and heal, get tested, etc.... i need to be payed... somehow. i just need to resolve this - so i feel better and then can go back to my normal work day. the safety lady also said that i will get cut hours and only allowed to work so many hours on my bad leg, if the doctor doesn't grant workers comp or time off.... said they might not cover it!!!!!!!! Should I immediately call my union rep tomorrow to see what to do next? No one has told me what to do straight forward. Being very secrative. Don't want to get anyone fired, but worried about my health and being able to perform my job well, without problems, and feeling ok!
