In July 2012 a new employee Joe came. In september 2012 david had to go on a medical leave for 6 months. Owner and manager needed to appoint a new temporary supervisor. They chose Joe. Joe got the title and a pay raise ( $22).
I didnt say anything . I kept working like I always did , double the work , going above and beyond etc. Joe was just as bad of a worker as David. Joe only worked 3 days
Until sometime in Nov 2012 I didn't go to work on Wednesdays . so it was only 3 people working plus Joe.(4 people total) The work didn't got done. I came back next day Thursdays(also 4 people total) and the store manager was there and working with us. He never stayed and worked with us. Owner and manager were afraid same thing would happen and job didnt get done. But i was working and the job got done .THE manager didn't even had to help and he saw how good of a worker I was
Next day Friday I saw the owner. He offered me to be take charge opaid $22. Must be my manager who said something to the owner.
I took the offer.They don't change my pay rate . they pay me the difference from $22 minus my regular pay $13 = $9 for Thursdays and Fridays and pay me on a different cheque labeled "special payment".
We are in a union. I was reading the union handbook that if they needed to appoint a new crew chief it would be based on seniority and ability. I worked the longest out of everyone and able to take charge. Yet they bypassed me for the promotion and the pay raise and chose Joe who only worked for 2+months.
Ever since September 2012 I wanted to know why. i m kinda upset by this but i didnt let it affect my work.
My supervisor David is coming back next week. I want to resign but before i leave i really want to ask the manager why they bypassed me.
Should I ask? What if you are the manager, what would you think if i asked you? Do i have all the right to be upset about the whole thing?
