They laid me off 9/13/08 give or take a day. They said they informed me on 10/03/08 that I was to return the following week. I never got a call or letter. I went out of town from 10/06/08 to 10/10/08 on the 10/09/08 I was home for a my son's baptism then my family left town again from 10/12/08 to 10/21/08. I called and asked if they were going to bring me back anytime soon. They said they had been trying to inform me to come back since 10/03/08. I had no messages on my phone and no letters in the mail. They told me I was terminated as of 10/16/08. My seniority date is 06/99 and I am currently a part time EAM driver. Is this termination permanent or is there a chance I can be reinstated?
