I am out of work again from an on the job knee injury that refuses to heal. Keeping it short to protect my identity and medical history in a freak incident at work I fractured bones in my knee and torn apart cartilage. I have been out multiple times with the same injury and have had one operation and will most likely be having my second surgery in the upcoming weeks. After seeing my doctor unfortunately it is coming to the point where I may not be able to perform in package and will not have the seniority to bid into a feeder position. I absolutely love my job and have worked so hard in many months of physical therapy to recover from this injury so I could return to work and continue my career. Before my injury I came to work everyday and gave my best day in and day out and never had any disciplinary problems. My center has done absolutely nothing for me post injury and have made my working experience hell. I have had many over 11's, over 12's performance rides and management refuses to allow me to work within my ability. Its just constant harassment and office visits. I feel as if nobody is willing to work with me and after my next surgery I have no other options. I only have a high school education and I don't have any skills besides delivering a box. I'm not looking for advice on obtaining attorneys and get rich off injury claims and all that hogwash. I have not heard anything from the company nor the insurance company but buy-outs are not realistic for my family. I've work very hard for this company and each week I need to be able to put food on the table and provide for my family. To be honest all I want to do is work and earn my teamster pension. Do I have any realistic union options?
