    They can terminate you for abandoning your job, there is no progressive discipline for that. You also said you got a warning letter for attendence. So they already warned you. Usually they dont fire you for that stuff unless it is a chronic issue. Therefore I dont think your telling the whole story

    I would private message Big Union Guy for help. Be prepared to wait as everyone and their brother sends him messages asking for help.

    This whole “I’m in the union they can’t f with me” attitude isn’t going to get anybody anywhere. I am proud as hell to be a teamster and I consider myself a teamster before I do a UPSER. That said, you can’t just clock off and not come back to work whenever you want. That is stuff I did when I was in high school. UPS is a very hard job and that’s why the union is there to have our back. In my opinion, a good teamster shows up to work and does his job to the best of his abilities. Guys like the op who want to get away with murder and hide behind the union devalue the process.

    We had a person who was a porter in our building. He was tired so he laid down on one of the belts and took a nap. Supervisor discovered him taking his nap and fired him. The union got his job back. The difference between you and him, he didn't abandon his job. He was just laid back and taking it easy in his scheduled work area.

    Here's the thing, they are going to look at it as job abandonment since you left the premises wether you agree with it or not. It is a working termination, which means it will get reviewed by a panel at some point. Honestly, they could have just fired you outright.

    You will get a chance to explain yourself and if you don't have a poor work history you will probably keep your job. Be honest when you are heard and don't do it again between now and then. If they really wanted you gone, you would be.

    A good Q is
    What were you looking for by posting your story?

    We have had people do worse. File a grievance immediately if you haven’t already. And don’t do it again you’re lucky they didn’t just fire you for leaving.

    Can you not read?
     
  14. That's what we all read. You passed out and went home without notifying anyone

    Did we all miss something else?

    Look at it this way.
    You own a business making Widgets.
    An employee leaves, and you do not see the person return to their work station for 3 hours.
    You are not the babysitter, most folks might conclude the person quit and is not coming back.
    Then the person comes back the next day with a cool story, would you take them back after he or she caused staffing issues the day before?

    ok just curious, what is a "working termination"? got a coworker on that now, he is a maroon,so much no call no shows, he had a 1, 3, then 5 day suspension, and now is on a "working termination" always wondered what that working termination actually is?
     
  18. When you get fired for something that isn't a cardinal sin.

    i understand actually being fired for cardinal or something that is not,, i am just trying to understand the actual meaning of "working termination" lol honestly, this :censored2: needs to be 100% terminated, and i cannot wait for the day i see him walked out. but that is not what my post was about, i just wanted to know the actual meaning of "working termination"
     
  20. He was probably fired for having too many infractions and warning letters.
    You are innocent to proven guilty.
