    I’m sorry for constantly bombarding everyone with termination questions, but I need desperate help and advice. But over the course of five to six years that I’ve worked at ups I’ve been well mean to everyone up there from co-workers to management and it’s gotten to where the business manager does not like me and I believe that he is trying to fire me even when I truly am trying to do my best at my job and at the way they want it done while changing my attitude and toxic ways but I think it’s gotten to the point to where they don’t believe that I’m sincerely trying. Like when I try to keep my mouth shut be respectful and honest and do my job By following the methods of loading (even though my walls are not always perfect) and trying to keep my trailer down and move around it just seems pointless. What should I do can they truly use any excuse to let me go? Also I all but know there have been a few people that have talked to the union steward about letting management fire me, Need help and honest answers please. On topic.

    Never talk to management without a witness or a steward. Do not sign anything without a steward or union rep present.

    I appreciate that you're doing something to take steps to improve yourself. I know how it is having the stress of this job turn you into a monster. Instead of telling them how you're changing, just change. We are all human and we all make mistakes and we live and learn. This is nothing to beat yourself up over or worry about your iob. Don't do anything that would dig your own grave.

    We had a guy who went on racist tirades about Jews and N****'s with multiple witnesses and he didn't get fired. I think you'll be OK. I'm pretty sure a lot of people underestimate how hard it is to fire a union employee.

    Heck, there was a guy who would cat-call the gay dudes and make fun of their "lithpth" and he didn't even get spoken to about it.

    Try no to worry, be humble and let your work do the talking for you.

    If I let my work do the talking for me, it'd have nothing to say. It might whimper and cry a little tho.

    Best advice is don't talk to anyone. It's usually your coworkers who are being babies and trying to stir the pot.

    Wouldn’t you need progressive discipline in writing, including any documented talks, write ups, suspensions etc.

    Don’t be intimidated

    Although I have overheard supervisors talk about making so and sos life a living hell. Ie write ups for every little thing/throwing them at the hardest designation. Most people earn that crappy reputation though.

    If you're mean to just about everyone then it sounds like Karma is coming back to bite you.

    At least he's doing something about his problems and not being an anonymous judgmental pusillanimous.

    He's still my brother and I'd go to bat for him. He clearly wants to change and knows something is wrong and is taking the initiative to be better. You don't see that a lot. I'm happy for him, tbh, and wish him the best of luck.
