Hey guys, I made a post a few months back about facing intimidation and harassment about my speed while working the preload shift. I was running to keep up with the belt and they had me on the hardest pull on the belt, with 1500+ packages between 4 cars. I'm having a much more serious issue now and everything I have worked so hard for in life is in jeopardy. I could really use some advice/insight on how I should handle my situation... Back in September, I distinctly remember my wrist feeling "strange" upon completion of my shift. I thought nothing of it and fell asleep. When I woke up, my wrist was in pretty serious pain. Swelling, discoloration, it even hurt to turn the damn door knob leaving the house. I notified my supervisor of the issue and he gave me a couple days off to let it heal up. I came back later on that week wearing a cheap wrist brace and let him know that if still felt off, but I was ok. It wasn't getting better, or worse - until peak. Not even a week into peak season, my wrist starting flaring up again. I immediately called my general practitioner to set up an appointment and notified my preload supervisor of the issue again. He asked me if I was ok to work, I figured since I could still use it - then I would be ok in the meantime. He required me to update him verbally whenever it got better/worse. My GP diagnosed it as wrist tendonitis and wrote a referral to a Hand Specialist. Again, I notified my supervisor about the outcome and appt for the Hand Specialist coming up. I worked up until last Friday, when the pain became debilitating after I felt a CLICK in my wrist. I had to call it quits mid-shift. I talked to the preload supervisor and said that I needed to file an injury report. He called my union steward in and told me a few things... 1) He had no knowledge that my injury was this bad 2) He would not have worked me if he knew it was this bad 3) He had no way of knowing if I did it at home 4) I didn't have an exact date at the time for when it all started (I figured it out from my paystubs today actually) 5) I saw my own doctor My steward agreed with him and basically said I'm out of luck. They did not allow me to file the injury report. I was told to not come back until I'm 100% better and my job will still be here. I went to my Hand Specialist appointment and I have a TFCC tear in my wrist. I will be out of work from anywhere between 1.5-4 months... I have bills and I have no idea what to do. I spoke with the business agent at union hall and he told me to contact an attorney that specializes in these situations, but it sounded like I have grounds for disability + unemployment benefits. What do I do?
