My mom works at a factory, she just called me so upset!
What she said was she was Stockman today, and requested a time study on her job because she felt like the area was too big and the other stockman's area was too small. The group leader says okay, we'll do a time study sometime. A while later another woman gets sick and mom asks to be put on her job, the group leader says "Fine, but train John how to do your job." so my mom is saying "You do this, this
" and he freaks out and says that is too much work for one person, my mom says yeah, I know they are going to do a time study. Well out of no where this other woman says "You have to do this and this too!" and my mom says "Yeah, but you do that after you do this and this. If you don't have time talk to to the group leader." and the woman gets up in my moms face, hits her with her work gloves (big thick work gloves) across the face knocking her safety glasses into her nose, bends them all out of shape and gives my mom a fat lip! Then she hits my mom's shoulder by her neck, and pushes her down. My mom's hands were full of boxes so she couldn'd fight back (probably a good think cuz my mom would have whomped her). The whole time the woman is calling my mom names, telling my mom she shakes her butt to get the guys to do work for her (my mom is really young, 41, really pretty, really skinny, but she's not a hootch).
My mom picked herself up and gets in the womans face and says "You get to Labor Relations (human resources) RIGHT NOW!" the woman told my mom she wasn't doing anything so my mom went to labor relations and told them what happened. They say they have to investigate it so they call the woman in and talk to her...I guess the group leader told this woman that a time study was requested and she got bent out of shape thinking it would change her job (she might actually have to work, not take 15 smoke breaks) so she got pissed at my mom. Anyway, my mom tells the supervisor that she was assulted and she wants him to call the police. He refuses, so my mom calls on her cell. The Union comes in and says my mom needs to calm down, they need to investigate
And my mom says thats crap, there is nothing to investigate, you can see the marks on her face. The union comes in and agrees to give the woman 3 days off. So my mom goes back to her area (waiting for the police to show up) and the woman is still there (paperwork has to be filed before she can be sent home) and she's calling my mom a b**** and pointing her out to people, saying B at the top of her lungs all the time "That F'ing B"
so my mom goes to the group leader and says "I don't want to take that harassment." and the group leader says there is nothing she can do about it so my mom says to send the woman home, she should be fired! The police show up and take statements, my mom tells the group leader she's leaving, so she does.
She went to the PD, filed a report and all that.
Oh and the woman didn't get fired at all, just suspended for 3 days
