Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.
Please note that I am working from my computer and not actually texting. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can. Finally, although the site offers a call option I personally do not take calls but just work online. Some find this confusing as it looks like the offer is coming from me but that is just how the site presents the offer and it really isn’t coming from me.
I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.
Are you saying that the union is not willing to file a grievance for you?
For what reason?
Well you are innocent until proven guilty but even if you were guilty is that grounds for a just cause dismissal dismissal when you've had one speeding violation off site and one on site?
I think that has to be the real question because even if you are convicted it hardly seems grounds to be dismissed for a single isolated ticket.
Have you spoken to the union about that?
I suggest you do now and ask them if you can be dismissed for a single speeding ticket offsite.
Do you see what I mean?
Well if you were relying on the fact that you're not guilty I can see why the union would delay. So I don't see what more you can do until you have trial and see what comes of it.
No I'm actually not looking at the way the union is with tunnel vision. I'm looking at the situation that you created yourself.
I had said that even a conviction wouldn't be good enough to dismiss you but you have been taking the position from the start that you're not guilty, that you were sick and on a crowded bus and that the police officer was overly aggressive and so you're not guilty. My view was not what your view was at all. My view is that you likely will be convicted but you shouldn't have been dismissed because of it but you put yourself in this position.
I don't see what that has to do with your dismissal for speeding. I'm just not able to follow that. But if you want to get the managers in trouble then sure you can complain.
