Last July a superviser ordered me to leave the property then reported I abandoned my job. He ordered me to leave in front of a witness. I have been through all the panels and now UPS and the Teamsters are in federal court over where the arbitration should legally be held. Yesterday, my local steward called me to inform me the labor manager retired and the new one has offered me my job back provided all time out is unpaid suspension and if this ever happens again I'm done. If I accept the offer, I know I'll regret it and hate myself for doing so but I'm getting a lot of pressure to accept. Has anyone had a similar situation where UPS made an offer so late in the game? Also, can UPS be doing this out of the goodness of their heart(hehe)? Or, am I right in assuming the offer itself is an admission of culpability? The steward seems to think, if I go to the end of arbitration, I'd be lucky just to have my job back.
