OMG!! It's 2:45 a.m. and I can't sleep!! My alarm will be going off in like about an hour and a half and I have to start getting ready for work....ahhh work....something we have to do...being a single mom ..I'm not left with much of a choice on that issue...but then I'm not one to sit home all the time either.....I did while I was attending college, and it was also at the time that my daughter was born premature....the only time in my life I accepted welfare....and only because I couldn't handle the cost of daycare for both working and attending school.....
I am still dealing with the bullshit from work .... the grievance has moved onto the next level...still no evidence to prove the allegations against me....and never any type of progressive discipline....
Funny thing tho....last Thursday...I was called into my supervisor's office for a "coaching session"....seems there is alot of talk around the job about the suspension, my grievance and a possible lawsuit.....and they aren't liking it too they had to have this coaching session to tell me not to talk about it.....I couldn't help but laugh...why the hell didn't they think of this before the suspension???
I hate nothing more then when a person is put into a position of authority and they take this authority....(unskilled at what to do with it....yet, it never fails how they allow this to go directly to the head...and think they can treat people any way that they choose...but not in this case...because I fight for my every sense.....)
I will now just sit back and allow this so called fabulous union of ours work this case - and pray that the representation shall be fair ... at least for their sake....because this whole mess is so unwarranted and unsubstantiated...hmmm, what's that old saying....perseverance and tenacity pays off....and time is on my hands...
Monday, August 15, 2005 - exactly one month before my surgery....I pray that this month shall go by uneventful and then I will take the four weeks off on FMLA and not only heal from the surgery - but become more aggressive in seeking another employer...keeping in mind that while on FMLA....the job I have remains mine and the medical benefits shall remain intact....just in case I need to return temperarily.....
ahhhhhhh the ponderings of the mind at 3 in the morning.....going back to bed to try for that last hour and half before I hear the buzz of the alarm reminding me I have to attend to the peon work I call a job....
till later.....carole

I know just what you mean there. I have had experiences like that to with someone that let the "power" get to their head. Good luck in the dealings with them and let the union earn its union dues.

Minnguy...unions aren't all that they are cracked up to be either - they stand behind the employer - and negotiate a settlement with still the employee losing out....thing is - I can't go for the lawsuit until all remedies through the union have been exhausted....ackkkkkkk.....this is all so frustrating...
