Is there ANY possible way to get my job back?
I previously worked customer service at a Shoprite Supermarket and I was recently fired for sending text messages while on the clock. I was warned many times, yet it did not sink in. I am in the union, though they say there is nothing they can do about a matter such as this. Is there ANYTHING that can be done to reverse this? I've tried begging the owner, and it hasn't worked so far. Are there any situations similar to this that have been solved in the past via The Union or any other way?

Your only hope would be having the union intercede on your behalf. Without them you are pretty much out of luck. Sad to say, you did yourself in. Don't waste any time over trying to get the job back, it is gone and it is not coming back. Spend your time and effort on getting a new job, and put this down as a lesson... More

Unfortunately they had every right to fire you. You were warned several times.A union protects your rights as a worker; it doesn't make it so you can get away with texting on the job. At your next job try to be more responsible and hard working.

You were warned many times, you ignored the warnings and got fired. The union isn't going to help you. Move on and find another job, and QUIT TEXTING WHILE YOU ARE AT WORK!!!

I think you're out of luck. You were warned, you were told your job was in jeopardy, but you didn't take the rules seriously. Look at it another way. You're in a relationship and you cheat, and cheat, and cheat. Finally she dumps you. Do you think she'd be an idiot to take you back if you promise to change... More
