    What is the correct phrase to use when one thinks they should have a shop steward present??

    My plan was this, "I am sorry, I cannot answer that. My supe said that I would not have a job if I did, so I would like to politely decline. If we need to continue this conversation, I would like to request my Weingarten rights and have a shop steward present."

    Yes??
     
  2. Exactly!
    You are entitled to a steward and they can not deny you.

    I have been practicing it since my drive from my delivery area, back to the building. The hardest part for me, will be shutting my mouth after I say it,

    I threatened to answer all of the safety questions wrong when the auditors come to our building. I said that if you cannot get my dispatch right, I cannot get your questions right. He said if I got them wrong, I would not have a job.

    I don't think he can do that.

    I don't think he can either. I do think that this will escalate the whole thing. Which is pretty much what I want.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I’m going to need a steward present if we’re going to discuss this.

    I know that’s not the official way but it gets the job done here. I really don’t like face to face confrontation so I normally just stand there and take my lashing and acknowledge I heard what was said while no agreeing to do what was said.

    Like 9.5. Get pulled to the side in the morning you’ve been over 2 times you can’t go over today. You’re light you’ll have no issues right? Well I haven’t really looked that close but it doesn’t seem too bad. We will have to see how the day goes. Knowing full well I’ll be over for day 3 without help.


    Go deliver a dozen stops and send a message. Over 9.5. Lmao

  19. They haven't changed anything. No extra routes in , no 22.4 drivers. What do they expect?

    The company agreed to this language

    Threatening my job is pretty much what I reserve harassment grievances for. They can do or say whatever they want. I really don’t care until they threaten to retaliate by taking my job. Then it’s time to nip it.
