Two weeks ago I called in sick and was told to get a doctor’s note. I got one and handed it to my supervisor. I didn’t get paid for the sick day of which I was told I hadn’t finished my probation of 3 months yet.
So why should I have to pay union dues before my probation ends if I am not eligible for any sick days?
Another thing is I am scheduled for 8 1/2 hour shifts. I have the extra 1/2 hour so I can take an unpaid lunch which I never take anyway. If this was a sharp union why wouldn’t I get paid for lunch and it be an 8 hour shift?
Lastly I don’t get paid for overtime on the same shift. In other words I have to work over 44 hours during a week to get any overtime. A long time ago I worked in a factory where if I worked an 11 hour shift I got paid 3 hours overtime for that shift. Come to think of it I have worked in restaurants without a union and gotten the overtime.
Is this a lousy union or what????
