Let me get right to it... Here is how the dialogue began. Monday 8-15-2011 - Work Wrote "There is a mandatory safety meeting that all employees must attend this coming saturday. All of you who are not scheduled to work that day are expected to attend. Meeting will start at 8am et cetera... Wednesday 8-17-2011 - Work Wrote "The saturday meeting is no longer mandatory. However everyone is encouraged to attend. Breakfast will be served. Thanks." Monday 8-22-2011 - Work Wrote "Attention all short haul drivers: There was a safety meeting scheduled this past saturday at our local terminal. This is the first time we have ever made it optional for our employees to attend. To all of you who attended the meeting, your "Thank You" will be given to you this week. To All Other Driver: It is unfortunate that our drivers do not have the energy, the time nor feels that safety is a priority to include it in their schedule. Throughout the rest of this month, there will be "additional" safety training that you must complete. This is mandatory. If you fail to do it, you will not receive your guaranteed pay. All of you who had to work on saturday and were not able to attend, you are exempt from this. So, they mandated a meeting. Unmandated it, then rediculed and added work load to us because we didn't attend this "Optional" meeting and threatened to dock our pay if we do not complete this additional work. Our guaranteed pay only includes our normal work load and nothing additional. So if we are asked to do anything outside of our normal work assignment it, then that extra work is included in our guaranteed pay, or if there is a certain threshold met we get paid extra money for doing the extra work. The boss totally created her own rule here because she got upset that only a couple of people showed up to this meeting. It seems we were all set up to fail here. Your thoughts?
