    You're no union brother of mine. I hope they fire you quickly.

    Give me a break with the union fake brotherhood crap. Look at your own signature.
    My only regret will be wishing that it was your truck that I loaded.

    It's satire.
    I AM a preloader. Self deprecating humor.

    I thought the union is supposed to handle discipline and the terms of. Walk in and suspended? Weak local

    I'm sure they do. He probably didn't talk to his Steward or BA about it and management took advantage of him.

    Here your suspension starts 10 days after the date disciplined.

    Peanuts said two weeks so that would make sense.

    The problem is he relied on the people that wanted to punish him to do him a favor and inform him. He should have talked to his rep and he'd have known from the beginning.

    Rookie mistake honestly.

    Here's the thing, misloads really screw over no one but the drivers. You want to "mess" with your supervisor, just work the preload the way you should.
    -Write the pal location on every package as you load it.
    -Scan every package, no exceptions.
    -Anything needs tape, send it to rewrap/damages. I'm sure you don't have a tapegun since they never seem to be around.
    -If you load from cages, make sure you have a hook/pull stick. Don't dive into them to get what's in back.
    -Don't stack/pull down the cages early in your shift. Work to the best of your ability to load what you can but make sure it all goes in.

    If you do the job the way they want you to, not skipping any steps, it is nearly impossible to keep up the pace they want and will therefor cause your supervisor a lot more headaches than one bad day of misloads. And your drivers would rather leave 15 minutes late then meet for misloads all day. Especially if you hand them a perfectly loaded truck.

    Yes - but this jackwad hates drivers. It sounds like he hates everyone.

    they refused to change the pick up time or tell a shipper to arrange a pickup and they dropped it all in the drop box making me late for a medical pick up. then tried to write me up on it after I been telling them for 3 weeks to change it. I told them suck it and i want a steward.

    Has anyone tried to get more than 4 hours of penalty pay in a month yet? It's in the new contract. I printed off that new language and highlighted it for management. Haven't been violated on an 8 hour this year.

    Have you successfully gotten more than 2 penalty payouts in a month? They are afraid of me filing 2+ 8 hours requests per month so I get a 5 hour dispatch on those days.
