Liberal Leave Policy
June 26, 2020
Subject: Liberal leave
Brothers and Sisters,
Management has decided that moving mail is more important than your health and the health of others around you. They have started disciplining Mail Handlers for taking off when they're sick. Disregarding their own standup talks that have been given numerous times by our own Plant Manager, various MDO's & SDO's clearly stating out of their own mouths to “PLEASE UTILIZE THE LIBERAL LEAVE POLICY AND STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK, EVEN IF YOU'RE FEELING UP TO WORKING.”
Management is trying their best to discourage Mail Handlers from calling out by making you decide between receiving possible discipline or staying home to care for yourself. The safety and well-being of employees is managements highest priority except in Bellmawr, SJP&DC.
DO NOT LET THIS WEAK TACTIC DISCOURAGE YOU!!!!! If you are sick do not come in and possibly infect others. Any discipline or PDI pertaining to the Liberal Leave Policy please let your Shop Stewards know so we can have that case sent up expeditiously!! Your well-being is truly the Unions #1 priority!
Any questions or concerns about anything, please do not hesitate to contact me or your Shop Steward. Once again If you are sick stay home EVEN if you're feeling up to working.
In Union Solidarity,
NPMHU, Local 308
