Our bakery used to close at 8, which is why they put me there. My available hours when I was hired were 8 am to 8 pm, so it worked perfectly. Well they decided that from now on they're going to be open til 10 and they started scheduling me that way. I told them I couldn't stay til 10 pm and that it conflicted with my availability. Well, the bakery head got mad and started saying it was unfair to the rest of the workers if I didn't close too. I said it was unfair to me to schedule me for hours when I can't work.
She got mad and surprise! on the next schedule I had no hours. She said it was a temporary layoff, but I've been off for a month and a half now. How long do these usually last?
Would you like fries with th... I mean, your milk in a bag?
What's your seniority status? Also, does she work at least one night till 10 pm? Another thing, why are you waiting this late to say anything about it?

I've been there for 8 years. She generally gets off at 5, sometimes on rare occasions she stays til 8. I've never seen her on the schedule work til 10. I contacted my union about it and they set up a meeting for me. It was supposed to be a week ago but the union rep got sick and had to reschedule.
Are you really unavailable?
Even if you aren't, seniority should still prevail if your schedule is still open like that.
What is your seniority compared to the other associates in your department.

I wouldn't be surprised. Other people in my department with less seniority don't have to close, there's a woman in our department who only works day shift and has never closed.

I think I'm 5th in line when it comes to seniority. There are two ladies who have been working there for 10 years (one of those two women only works nightshift by her choice), one person been working there for 9, and one was hired in the same year I was a few weeks before me. We have about 7 other people in the department and they all have less seniority.
