  1. I am very stressed about the whole situation. I have worked for this company for many years and have always Been loyal and reliable. My work record is exemplary. The remark he made he said was aimed at 9 people of which I wasn't one of them but that he tars us all with the same brush. His words not mine. It is a male dominated environment with only a handful of female employees and my heads in bits over it. I feel that because he is very high up in the company if I speak out about it they will look for ways to get rid of me even though I am very good at my job. I don't want to give them any excuse to dismiss me but I really do not want to attend the meeting. I avoid him if I can and would not feel comfortable being sat in the same room. Going to H.R. in theory is the correct thing to do but knowing the company the way I do I think it will just make things worse especially with him being so high up. My work colleagues have approached me since it happened and have used the words bullying, humiliating, degrading and it has been said that he only spoke to me that way because I am a woman but how can I put my colleagues in an awkward situation without them risking their jobs too. I just figured it would be easier if I didn't show up at the meeting but don't want to get the sack.
  2. Hi all I am contracted to work 40 hours per week and only get paid 40 hours regardless how many hours I work. I did not have an issue with this until the new boss started. It has always been give and take, we work long days usually without a break but we also got shorter days which made up for it. Since the new boss started everyday is getting longer and the shorter days are few and far between. My issue is that once a month my boss is holding compulsory meetings which last for a minimum of 3 hours they are always held late afternoon after my shift. Due to the nature of the business I start work between 5 and 6 in a morning and get paid for 8 hours a day. At the last meeting one of the managers made a very derogatory remark about us which we all took exception to and I was singled out and shouted at in front of about 30 people. He was bang out of order and I told him so in front of everybody. He later apologized but it was very insincere and totally not meant. Since then every time I see him I he gives me filthy looks. I get knots in my stomach and dread going back to the yard in case hes there. They have now called another compulsory meeting but have stated that all work has got to be pulled in before we attend which would put most of us over our hours and they do not pay us for it. I do not feel comfortable attending after how I was treated at the last one so what would happen if I didn't attend.
