i was terminated for dishonesty. Story: I futured 6 packages (businesses) that I was not going to make. I futured them for the next day. Next morning I show up and my shop steward tells me they want to walk me out, tells me bc I futured these 6 packages. I had a meeting and they asked me if it was true, I told them it was. I told them I knew I was not going to make them so instead of writing them up as missed I decided to future them. That was my mistake, making that judgement call and not calling the office and putting it in their hands. I get loaded with 200 plus stops daily on that route, that day I had 215 ( it's not even peak season (September). I told them i can only deviate from my route so much, I already get off around 830/9 pm daily. I was terminated and in 2 days I will have a meeting with the labor people and the union. What should I expect? Will I get my job back? I also mentioned that I wasn't trying to cheat the company or cover my ass I told them I was trying to do a favor for my center so it don't show up as missed is all. Once I went to the office with a business package and said " I don't know what you want me to do with it, sheet it up as missed or what" . One driver said " future them to tomorrow that's what I do" to the response the dispatcher said " yeep" so I honestly didn't think it was that bad. now I'm 2 weeks in not working, no pay and scared I'm not going to get my Job back. ( been with the company for 10 years, driving for 2 years). What do I say when I have this meeting? I've futured packages in the past but they never told me not to, or what's happening here, no warning letter Or write up straight to getting discharged. My center manager said it came from higher in the command chain. Any input would help since I'm 2 days out from this meeting. Thanks ahead of time everyone!
