I received a warning letter from my main employer that's false. I was fired off a job that the employer's production man saying "I refused to roll up carpet on the job site". I never refused I just said I couldn't roll it by myself to their standards.
I don't want the letter in my file. I was terminated after 1/2 hour of a 5 hour call.
The union is divided and my Bus. Agent doesn't care.
I'm 72 years old and #1 on the union's seniority list. This charge and letter against me is completely false. I have several other workers on the same job and all agreed this was not fair, and I'm innocent of all charges.
