As a peak season hire, I was terminated for "sexual harrassment" after returning to the center Monday PM. (You can check out my posts in general discussions on browncafe for some detailed background). My question is....we are paying "service fees" (union dues) to the local. I was wrongfully accused by a regular union driver. According to the local, the union can't do a thing for me. According to what I have read from the Teamsters: "Peak Season Employment at UPS is considered Bargaining Unit Work, and falls under the Terms and Conditions of the Teamsters/UPS Labor Agreement" So, that sounds like since I was falsely accused by a union driver, I should be able to have some union representation under the terms and conditions of the Teamsters/UPS Labor Agreement. None of the Union rules/guidlines were followed in my case, nor were UPS internal guidlines followed, nor were state Labor Department guidlines followed, nor were Federal Labor guidlines followed (for sexual harrasment-in all cases) Does anyone out there have a clue as to what the deal is with this? I may not be an angel, but I have never been fired from a job in my life. Nor have ever sexually harrassed anyone in my life. I do not want to have this scourge/scarlett letter put upon me on a managers whim. The center manager summarily fired me on the spot with no investigation, or chance for me to state my case, or even know my accuser. I understand this work was scheduled to end 12/31/2006, however, I have lost out on the most money I would have made in the entire 3+ months, and basically had the rug pulled out from under me.....right before Christmas, with no basic rights given whatsover. They's have been better off firing me for no reason. But they didn't. Thanks for listening.
