    Received a warning letter in the mail for failure to blow my horn at a pedestrian on the side of the road. Letter stated I had a meeting with the center manager and union steward on the 23rd. I wasn’t even at work on the 23rd and the meeting never happened. A member of the safety committee was also out at the observation helping management. Just wondering what I should file a grievance on. And I did blow the horn.

    I had a warning letter sent to my house out of the blue. Had no idea what it was for. I still don't know what it was for. But when my wife called me and asked why we missed a letter from the post office from ups. I called my supe asked him if he sent me a warning letter. He said yeah. I filed a harassment grievance on him that night. The next morning we had a meeting with my shop steward. My supe threw out the warning letter.

    They were following you on your day off and you didn’t blow your horn at the pedestrian I don’t see the problem. They caught me jerking off one time when I was on vacation and tried to fire me for stealing time

    They made a mistake on the date.

    Grieve it, and blow the horn every time you go past that ORS house especially if it's late from now on.

    Omg!! As someone that used to be on the Safety committee, I can tell you that we handled safety WAAAAAYYY differently than most of the country. We were NEVER involved in observations. Just facility audits for PE. Our job was to hold the company accountable for unsafe work practices. It was completely Union runned. Did not blowing your horn result in a crash? Well F your boss.

    The only time you don't blow your horn at a pedestrian is if its Upstate--in that case you aim at him and floor it.

    I don’t know what the big deal with the warning letter is. It’s the same thing as your grievance process. If it’s not done then there’s no documentation. Wipe your ass with it for all I care.
