Yes. And yes this falls under it. I wanted to work yeaterday but it was a no goIs the contract still full of "Act of God" clauses that over-ride everything else? Mathew just might be classified as an act of god and guaranteed hours might not apply in this case.
How do you become a stewert?Yes. And yes this falls under it. I wanted to work yeaterday but it was a no go
To the OP. You come on here to complain about the union but don't intend to do anything proactive it. If you steward sucks, become one yourself and try to push him out
You not filing the grievance just adds to the problem. File it. Stand up for yourself
The rule of thumb is if they call you before your shift telling you to stay home you would have to burn a day if you want to get paid. If they make you come in you are entitled to your daily guarantee. You may have to file a grievance in order to get paid.Several years ago there was a winter storm bearing down in our area. We (drivers) were told to come in as they were not suspending operations. Once we were there it was clear it was up in the air whether we were going to be sent out. Stewards told us to clock in while management decided whether to send us out.
After our schedule start time they decided to suspend operations. UPS would not pay us our 8 guarantee. Everyone that clocked in eventually got paid when grievances were heard. Took a long time, but we got paid. Easiest day I ever had at UPS.
