Sorry I took so long. We were just being carefull. He actually got his job back on Tuesday in Alabama, he had to travel there but never actually had to sit in panel. the Union reps and the UPS labor guy came to an agreement. The Labor guy said the Union reps harped on him all day so they gave him and offer without going to panel and we took it. Job back, seniority and all returns to normal. He has to join the safety committee and have a supervisor ride with him for 2 days. No back pay, but he did have the choice of going to panel, but I didn't want to take the chance. We really didn't care about back pay at that point. That day he was told not to tell ANYONE till he went back to work today, so that's why no post. He said the sup who fired him didn't even say hello thismorning. everyone has warned him of the big X on his back now. All he can do is be carefull. The union told him that UPS had a really bad case. There was no official tow. everyone left the scene after the driver refused tow. according to UPS, the father then called someone to tow him with a rope "just to be safe" because the car was running and working. but UPS couldn't get this story straight because they kept calling and calling the people and then showed up at their house, the people probably wondered "what the heck is going on" so they got a lawyer and said they weren't saying anything else. I am so freaking relieved. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for being there for me, you friends have been wonderfull and full of information. Iv'e been trying to talk my husband into joining here, he may or may not, he just isn't really a computer person. I really can't thank you enough for being there when I didn't have anyone to talk to about this. It was so hard for him not to tell his friends at work all week, like 10 drivers must have called. but I'm sure they understand now. Thanks again!
