Today was a day for the books! Whew again!
I need to shout out to Bridget and Mari Ann. I cannot thank either of you enough for your support and great advice yesterday and today.
To catch everyone up, I ended up having a meeting with my union rep, my boss and his boss. HR could not make it.
So I laid all my concerns on the table and it was clear to me that my hunch was right, my boss was not honest with me and his boss did not know half the stuff I thought he was aware of.
Anyway, long story short, his boss assured me my position is not going away.
They seem to be parting it out, but now that the union is aware, its safe for now.
The best part was when I mentioned that the only reason I am being discounted is because of my age, everyone sat up a little straighter.
More blah blah blah, and then she, the union rep flat out asked them what my career course will be!
Man did they back track and squirm.
I think I accomplished a few things!
I let them know I am serious about my job.
I am going to protect it.
We are watching them.
My boss has been exposed as the liar he is. That was the other best part.
And I am not afraid to use the union now. Heck I might become a steward!
I feel better! I hope there is no backlash. But feeling like I have sone protection.
Oh and I didn’t cry!
When the rep and I left the office, I pulled her into a conference room and shed a few, because that is way way WAY out of my comfort zone! But I was determined not to cry in there!
She said I was organized and professional! I just stuck to my list and the facts! I didn’t get personal.
Again thanks for your kindest and support! You guys rock my world!
So guess what? Its raining now!
I could use something stronger! (I still haven’t tried the alcohol free white.) Will post when I do. 👍
But instead grabbed my fur baby and off to watch Better Call Saul! Its pretty good!
I am drained!
Whew again! Whew!
