I 't believe i was represented correctly during a write-up.

Customer Question
I don't believe i...

I don't believe i was represented correctly during a write-up. Iy has been almost 2 months and I would like to grieve the write-up. How can i go about greiving the write-up in this stage?

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I worked a 10hr shift in the ICU trying to save the life of a patient. I was given a few minutes during my shift to take a break. I walked to the cafeteria to grab a bite to eat, unfortunately for me, the cafeteria was running short due to a call out and all they had was a beef patty. While I was waiting on line to pay for my food, i received a page regarding the patient i saved the life for and I ran out of the cafeteria without paying. A few days later, my manager called me down and gave me a level 3 writeup from a complaint from the kitchen worker. I was threatened that i would lose my license and I did not have proper representation. I was forced to sign the wiretap or else get FIRED. I have worked for this organization for 17 years with not one item in my file.

Thank you. I assume that you're a union member (which is why you have the right to representation)? What was the extent of the representation that you received?

That's the issue. I was misrepresented. My union rep informed me that she couldn't do anything for me and actually forced me to sign the write up. Since I have a clean record and have never had a counseling or conversation with anyone regarding performance or anything else. I didn't know what to do. She also told me if I didn't sign they would report me to the state of professions.

What does your union agreement say in regards ***** ***** you'll receive in terms of representation?
