Hi. My sup decided to kick off about our shirts being ironed yesterday, so I'm interested in people's views. I'm pretty sure my contract says my shirt should be ironed (can anyone confirm?). In the early days I used to iron my shirt but after realising it didn't look different to non ironed I stopped. 5 years ago. (The lack of difference is mainly due to my fabulous laundry skills. Don't overload the washing machine, unload as soon as the cycle finishes and put on hangers to dry). No one has mentioned my shirts in five years. There is various UK case law about dress codes, reasonableness and prior enforceability which I think supports me not having to buy a new iron. I think to win a case UPS would have to prove materiality where they would be on a hiding tp nothing. I think in the UK we have stronger employee protection than in the US. Otherwise I adhere to the dress code. I look smart... though I might not wear the brown socks all the time. The thing that really annoyed me is the sup started having a go at people at the end of the day. 10 hours and 100 stops and I still look smart but the sup is expecting razor sharp creases. The upshot is, I'm not going to iron my shirts. How likely do you think it is that they will try to sack me?
