I got suspended for having an altercation with a co-worker. We were face to face and it was due to her not cleaning a patients room whom is related to me. Me and her are custodian workers at a hospital. I was upset on how dirty her area was and to find that our supervisors never tell her nothing but only wanna be telling me to make sure I’m following up with the job but yet her area she’s assigned is filthy and mines isn’t. She has 2 1/2 months working with us. I regret stepping up to her face although she’s the one that suggested to do so. I was having a bad day and unleashed my stress towards that situation. I didn’t curse at her nor hit her, we were just up close at each other’s face . They suspended me two days after and told me I would get called once a decisions had been made whether I’m staying or getting fired.
I have union and my area manager that’s taking care of this situation doesn’t like me at all. She writes me up for any little thing. She wrote me up for saying “stupid shit” while talking about things outside of work but she never writes up other employees for cursing loud in the hallways. she also discriminated me for wearing a skeleton cardigan to work calling it unprofessional as a hospital housekeeper and for having pink highlights at the tip of my hair. note that the company policy says nothing about colored hair or designed sweaters. I currently have two write ups which are for petty reasons for example saying stupid shit, and for telling a coworker to stop speaking about my work business to every other employee. Everytime she sees me she’s looking to see if I have the wrong shoes on or if I’m taking scrubs or not while others wear jeans and gets away with it. There’s always something about me that sets her off. So with this happening I feel like she’s going to terminate me.
But I have union so I’m not sure if they can help me with this type of situation.
