First, thanks for the time to help me with my problem. Second, some minor info to help you with my issues. I work in Small Sort, trained in every job available. Also able to work in the Unload. My seniority puts me ahead of about 5 other people in the area (about 20 workers total) Most people with less seniority than me are trained in same or similar jobs in Small Sort & Unload. Our Small Sort includes the SSLAW machine. So I have a few questions as I recently have grown into fighting for my rights rather than bending over for my supervisors as most workers at my plant do. I have obtained the book with the National Master United Parcel Service Agreement and Central Region and Local 243 and Metro Detroit Supplements. Its quite the read and a bit ambiguous in certain parts. Now for my major problem. My supervisor just put me at one of the jobs that I am capable of doing and was trained in(sorting for the SSLAW machine), however do not consider myself good at. Especially since a while back when I actually wanted to do the job I kept being criticized and even had been called into office with a union steward and my supervisor. Now recently I was asked to do the job as the primary sorters have gone on vacation. There are others who can do this job, with more and less seniority than me. I have told my supervisor about me not wanting to do the job as well as affirming the fact that I most likely will not be able to handle the flow. I was dismissed under the fact that I have done the job before and am good at it. At the end of the shift I was called in to have a talk with my supervisor and union steward (who by now I am displeased with the way they perform their job) and I was told that I have sabotaged the shift today as we had to take an extra 10 minutes to finish sorting everything I was unable to catch during the shift. So now that I have taken all of this off my chest, (and you managed to read through that mess) I have a few questions I'd like to ask and perhaps confirm ones I have had answered by other employees/backup stewards. 1) If I am displeased with the way my steward operates, I am allowed to select a different one for my grievance procedure or a talk with supervisor and steward. Is this correct? 2) If I see a lower seniority worker performing a job I wish to perform, and said worker is capable of doing my job I can ask to be switched, and the supervisor should comply with rules of seniority. 3) If said supervisor refuses the above and uses the rule of "work as directed" (which I have not found in the contract yet) I am able to file a grievance against him/her. 4) I was told a Union steward is a bridge between the supervisor & union worker, However my Union steward simply seems to be a gun for the supervisor to use against us, and never supports or defends us. Can I file a grievance against them for this reason? 5) This last one slightly off topic but still an issue I'd like resolved. Small sort is my preferred work area, and my name is on that list. However with varying degrees of flow, sometimes I am asked to help on unload along with the people below me on the list in small sort. The part time supervisors as well as the full time supervisor are aware of the fact that I do not wish to be on unload. However my issue here is that the people with lower seniority either don't have to go help on unload or they return to small sort within 30 minutes while I stay for the entire shift. Am I not allowed to fight for my right to either stay at small sort or return before anyone with less seniority? Once again thanks for all the help, and thanks for bearing with my poor sentence structure and wall of text.
