OK I will start off by setting up the situation for you all: One belt for my tiny little center. I am loading at the end of the building where they have added on to it with rollers set up. I have a few boxes on the rollers its around 8 A.M. I have realized that the outlet mall that i load isn't getting enough to have the trailer along with it. I had about 20 or so in the trailer. Now on the other side of the rollers was a real mess. The loader was getting his butt handed to him all morning long. It had at this point become backed up to the next set of trucks. Belt was being shut off, rung looking for help. All mgnt did was look and start the belt back up. Eventually the f/t sup comes down and says to me "get over hear and help him clean up his side." I simply replied "No. I have the trailer that needs to be moved over and I am still getting more, can't you get some one to come down from unload to help. That way we both wont get backed up." He then came down to right infront of me and stated that I will listen to him I will go over and help I will not be insubordinate and if i dont i will be sent home. I calmly said to him that it doesn't make much sense because its only going to get worse down here if i stop doing what i am doing and go help him. So he then said as he was walking away " I'll send you home, terminate you, and have you go under investigation for insubordination." Yes i did go over and help him out. Yes my side became backed up just as far within a couple of minutes. I didn't leave till very late. My question is: Is insubordination a real rule? Is it something that i can be fired for? Can the f/t sup get in my face like that? i personally think it was all BS and i dont like the way i was treated. Any feedback would be grateful. Sorry for the long post everyone.
