Let The Games Begin

This is a picture of the Union Pacific conference room that I was able to spend 45 minutes in today. I had an investigation by the company to assess discipline because I am accused of not being available for work enough.

I was given a 6 month probation... Here is the interesting part to it all... I work at least 60 hours a week and am in a hotel for at least 20 hours a week which equates to 80+ hours a week dedicated to the railroad. I have called in to take non compensated personal days an average of 3 times a month for the past 3 months... which means that I took 3 non compensated 24 hour periods off each month... Since I am on call 24 hours a day 365 days a year that seems reasonable... Not to the railroad.

What a crazy job...

Oh wow, how...daunting. You are a very hard worker. Just show them your blog. Your "work" catergory beats family and all others by 7 enrties. How annoying is that! I hope everything goes okay.
