  1. Just to update i am still suspended i have been paid minus a deduction for an apparent accident i was involved in. I have never been in an accident whilst at that company. I did however pick up a hire van that i now find is in my name.
  2. It wasn't a case of family members helping out it was a case of i barely got time with my partner and it was ok at the time as it suited them. I agreed to working a 12 hour shift on a sunday and permission was granted that my partner could accompany me. The plan was to get a meal and see some sights on the way back. Nothing was in writing it and it was a gentlemans agreement. Now that i cannot do the overtime it becomes an issue. Because i have put my family first after putting them second for 17 month. Ive become a thorn in there side. Im already looking for a new job and i have told them that. Im confused as to why im in a cooling off period on full pay with at the minute loss of contact. Do they believe they have done wrong?. Do they even know what they are doing?. At the end of the day ive excersised my rights and it does not suit them. Ive got solid proof that the routing is an impossible task ive got recordings of them telling me im good at my job. If they can let me go so easy why am i still sat in a cooling off with no discaplinary. As much as im mad with them i dont want to screw them over. I bent over backwards and asked for my regular hours while the kids were off school. I ended up suspended on full pay, they could of given me the route that finishes at half 9. But they choose this way.
  3. I might definately have the screenshots of the conversation or possibly not depending on if any cia agents are acting on behalf of the company.
  4. They asked me questions relating as to why i did not complete my run and also allegations have been made that i often bring my spouse with me on the job. This did happen once or twice last year on weekend overtime. They are specifically asking questions regarding me announcing that i can not do overtime 4 hours before shift. This was done via an email they set up for the depot that i had access too. Now they have blocked me from accessing. Im waiting on a reply from the operations manager to confirm these email exchanges. The manager who interviewed me seen these emails But seems to not acknowledge them. I said i would get back to them about overtime after seeking advice. There basically saying they cannot guarantee me a half 9 finish but also not stating what they consider to be reasonable overtime.
  5. I have been lending my hand to the company alot but its the 6 weeks holidays i work nights and i have kids to attend to. So my previous workload should not guarantee that permanently. Im currently 17 month into my ft contract, with the route im on its a guarantee you are getting overtime. Your last drop is 2.5 hours away from depot thats if the motorway network is running smooth. They have took on extra contracts that have us dropping on the way back in usually to busy town centers during opening hours. There is never notice for overtime its a case of overtime is almost a certain. Half of the time the company doesnt even know what its shipping until it comes off the plane. Weights are way off, 1kg packets are 350kg crates. 1 lifting aid between 4 vans. Its a shambles and its an accident waiting to happen. Im currently still suspended ive heard nothing back. Ive requested certain things and got excuses as to how it would be hard for them to get the information. As far as im aware the suspension was a cooling off period. There still isnt any official disciplinary in progress. Im actually confused as to whats happening.
  6. Hi thanks for the reply. I do work in delivery through the night, my contract states i am to work 40 hours between 2 and 9.30. Additional hours maybe required when authorised and when business requires. Regards
  7. Hi all looking for abit of advice, i got suspended on wednesday for not being available for overtime. They are telling me i have agreed to doing reasonable amount of overtime. Yet they are not able to determine what a reasonable amount is. I informed them i could not do it before shift started. They still put me on a route that would force me into overtime. I turned around with 4 drops left to do. I then started getting pushed into finishing it which i declined. I then received emails with my contract and asking me again am i available for overtime. I replied with no and never got a reply, i walked in that night to a suspension i am due back tonight for the meeting. Due to the time there is no one available to accompany me, is there anything i am required to say before recording the interview on my phone. Im not certain it even states what they are saying.... any advice would be grateful. I have tried to upload a screen grab but its not letting me on my phone. Thanks
