    Default Suspended with the intent of being discharged.

    A guy at work starts **** with me, so I talk **** back to him. I Tell him it wouldn't surprise me if he was working on his second divorce with the way he has been treating fellow workers. He tells me that I am married to a *****. I told him he wouldn't talk to me that way outside of work, he shoves me and knees me in the thigh and then goes into the office and says i threatened him. He has management call plant security. I had to take a drug test, give up my ID and got escorted off the property. The chairman of our grievance committee tells me it will be 30-45 days before i get back to work. I don't know if this is the forum or not, but i need to vent. The suckass, spineless coward gets to continue working after starting the **** and I am out without pay. The situation really makes me wish I would have just kicked the holy hell out of jeff bartos. I wouldn't be any worse off than I am now, and I would feel a whole lot better

    Yea... Talk to a lawyer and look into "recovering back pay".

    ... Other than that, target Jeff and kick the **** out of him if/when he visits a "watering hole" after work.

    Seriously though... Stories are always "two sided" and it sucks that they did this... But deal with it appropriately so as not to screw yourself down the road.

    Yeah, I am exploring all available options in the matter. The lawyer I talked to said that if the USWA were to fail to get me my job back, he could file a wrongfull termination lawsuit against arcelormittal USA.
    The Steelworkers Union Recomended I go to anger management, so that when I go to my hearing, it makes it more favorable for me. Up until this, my work history was spotless. Jeff was almost fired for threatening a security guard during a vehical search. He has documented complaints against him for verbally abusing employees and management that is going to be brought up by my grievers at the hearing.
    It just ****es me off, because he is the kind of guy who will start **** with you and then runs and hides behind "his big brother" if you will.
    I guess I was stupid for not just walking away from him, I had that option, but I never in my wildest dreams thought I would find myself in this position for cursing someone out.

    My only other recommendations is to delete specific references to this guy and your company from the forum. That might come back to bite you.

    Well, it's back to work on Sunday. I had to give up all lost wages from the time off, but at least I got my job back.
