So my supervisor came in my office about an hour ago telling me that Dragon Lady would like to meet with me to discuss my poor work performance last week. It took everything in me to not throw the lamp on my desk.

I had spoken with the union rep Friday after all those emails so she and I had plans to meet Thursday. Well I called her today to tell her about this meeting they want to have and she advised me to email them saying I wanted union representation.

I've been with my company over seven years and although I pay union dues bi-weekly, I've never had to use them. I feel mad and cornered. They are trying to make me out to be incompetant over some stupid a$$ emails. Not like the work wasn't done. The more I think about it, the more pissed I am.

After sending the email to them about my wanting a rep there, I wanted to email them my two week notice. I called my dad, my clear-thinking conscience. He said not to let them mess up my plans and the reason I chose the date I had was because I wanted to have a certain amount of savings and I should stick to that date.

It is going to take everything in me to stay here until then. One of my BFF's counted down for me that its only 16 more work days before my notice. That seems small but then again, so far from now.

YW-That's only 16days until I give notice, I still have the two weeks after that. I know that I can make it, just going to be a real challenge. Thanks as always for the encouragement.

I knew that shit was a set up. I can smell petty BS from miles away. will your union rep know be able to inflict any consequences if it's proven that your work was being done and they were waisting your time? Please make sure that you don't tell them that you were already planning to leave. Make them know that you are above their asses and that you are moving on to bigger and better things.

Buttahfly-You were SO right Friday! When my supervisor said they wanted to meet, I actually wasn't surprised. I won't tell them in the meeting that I'm leaving I am going to wait it out to my original date or until I get a job offer somewhere, whatever comes first.

I can prove that I did the work but if they have bs policies in tact, does that make me wrong anyway? Like I said, I've never had any work issues so this is all new to me. I will mention in the union meeting that I feel harassed by them.

I'm sorry you have to go through that but at least you have your dad to talk you off the ledge. You can't let them back you into a corner like that because you're going to be effed up in the end. Woooo to the sahhhhhhhhhh, :)
