I got laid off from Saia last Thursday. Was told due to business conditions, my position was eliminated. My position was Dock Lead-Full time. During my meeting being told I was getting laid off, I asked about part-time. I was told there are no positions. I then go to Saia website, and see that position just got posted for my terminal. Here is some back history: We got a new young TM 6 months ago. During his first week alone, he wrote me up. Soon to be many. Some for some really lame things. Prior to that, my 3 years with last TM was write up free and even got a presidents award. I worked the inbound till about a month ago. A month ago, new TM says he needs full timer on outbound and the part timer on inbound due to he is getting too many hours. Neither of us had worked either shift prior to that. TM says part-timer to work 6 hours a day. So as the month goes by, I look at EMC and see not only that the part timer is get more hours than me, but overtime on top of it. I struggled at first to learn outbound operations and then near end was getting to get a hold on it. For the record, our TM is 28 and part timer is 26. I am 43. When I first started to work the OB, he was having me work with a part timer who has been doing OB for a couple of years. My TM said he wanted me to do it as that gentleman was too old to train. Now he has made similar comments to the older dock guys when I worked on the inbound. He said they was so old they was set in their ways. One day I caught the part time lead cheating on his time and setting his times on EMC to not show he was 45 mins late. When I asked in an email to TM what would happen to someone who did this, he just wrote back "uhhhh...". I was then locked out of the EMC and could not fix times, but the part time lead was still allowed. I found this out by overhearing the TM explain to a driver who complained he got tagged with a late start, that the part timer must have forgot to fix his time. Now to my reason I was laid off. I was laid off on May 12th. On May 6th at about 9:52pm, I was in a confrontation with a line driver because I closed his load 7 mins late. I actually closed on pup on time and got distracted with another problem and closed 2nd on 7 mins late (2 mins past TM's new 5 mins late rule). The line driver starts to get nasty and threaten me with call Atlanta. I then call TM and tell him what is going on and that is when the TM advises me of the 5 min rule. Before it was 15 mins late and I can roll time back and dispatch driver out since there is 20 mins extra allowed that driver can make up in route. Once I heard this, I told TM I am tired of his about face on everything he says when there is a problem. I then informed him I am tired of him also screwing me by putting me on a shift with minimal training and setting me up to fail. I also told him I am fed up with his favoritism with the younger dock lead. He never writes him up. My job was threatened and I told him when I come in Monday, we can call HR and see what they have to say. I did tell him I plan on going to EEOC over this all and his remarks made about older employees. So now you decide. I have been a lead with less bills and more staffing for 3 years and now I get laid off and they post my position on Saia website.
