I have worked for the railway for 32 years and in that time I have been fired 3 times and withheld from service for being unfit to work. I am presently dismissed and once again I feel that I have been bullied into submission. I have reported to my doctors and to the medical department at work the bullying. The company disagrees and I am dealing with the issue with my own doctors.
The problem that I am having is that it is almost impossible to find the railway liable for very much. They seem to have this blanket of protection from most government agents. Even if they are found liable there is no penalty.
Most of this has occurred over the last number of years since new management has come in. The senior management position is held by a manager from the other railway. The workers at the other railway were no sad to see him leave.
Government reports have recently been released indicating that indeed heavy discipline has been issued by the railway, but I see little being done to correct it.
The railway is in part a very good place to work. Most of the employees are very good people. It consist of long hours and stressful situations, but there isn't much more pleasure than running a train through the mighty Fraser Canyon in the still of the night.
There are however some individuals that are just not nice. A couple just happen to be managers. Right or wrong, they are backed by a whole lot of money and power.
What can I do?
