So this happened on my center yesterday (this was totally not me I swear). A driver after the PCM went to get his call tags and HVs when he came back to the truck the building manager was waiting for him and asked him. Manager : what is holding you up? Driver: I was getting my call tags and Hvs. Manager: that's part of being ready for work. Driver: I'm getting pay to get them as they are part of my work, you can go ahead and call the union if you want to. Manager: you don't work for the union, you work for me, so I decide when I call the union or no. Driver: ok I work for you so im gonna tell you this I AM NOT GOING TO WORK FOR FREE, ILL GET MY CALL TAGS AND HVs WHEN I'M ON THE CLOCK, also I feel like this conversation is going to end in me being discipline so im requesting my union rep if you want to continue this. Manager: you don't have the right to a union rep. From this point on the manager kept asking him question to which the driver only answer was SHOP STEWARD, eventually the manager just moved aside and let the driver go. This morning the big union guys showed up, and we were just laughing about this. While this is funny is kinda sad to just imagine how many drivers will have accepted that they have to work for free just cuz someone with a tittle told them to. I understand that is better to keep your head down but i really rather that they know my name as the guy who will stand by the book and won’t be intimidated.
