I was asked multiple times to take a position on another shift. I didn't want to leave 1st shift, but was convinced I'd like it. In the meeting that discussed everything I asked that if I didn't like it or otherwise wished to, I'd be able to return to my old position.
Well it was bad. They lied about the duties I'd have to preform (it's like 2.5 peoples worth of work) and there's a lot of getting on your knees (which as a heavy guy is absolutely killing me).
I went to HR and explained that I was lied to and that I was promised my old spot back if I wanted. Now I know I wouldn't be moved back the next day, it may take a week or even 2. However she's now telling me I can go back to first, but in a different position...
I have seniority on nearly everyone in the factory, I was promised I could have it back, I was lied to about my job duties in order to trick me into the position. Given all of this, how are they able to deny me my old position?
I even do addition work for the company. normally the hours are 8 hours a day mon-fri, but I come in every Saturday to do maintenance. I've been taught several things few know and would consider myself an asset to the company.
How should I approach them about this? I'm trying not to get angry, but it's getting kind of hard at this point. What should I do?
