An arbitrator has upheld the firing of a thirty one year Canada Post employee for threatening and offensive comments she posted on Facebook. In addition to using obscene language to describe supervisors, the employee made comments like ““DIE BITCH DIE,” and “WRONG AGAIN BITCH you gonna be the one missing PERMANENTLY”, which prompted the targeted supervisor to contact the police.
Most of the posts were made from the employee’s home, but some were made from her cell phone while she was at work. The employee claimed that she didn’t realize the comments were public, and thought that only her friends could see them. The arbitrator found that argument unconvincing, since some of her Facebook friends were also Canada Post employees. He also dismissed the employee’s claim that she was drunk when she posted the comments.
The arbitrator also found that the employee’s lack of remorse precluded her from being reinstated.
LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- – Postal workers are saying there shouldn’t be any cause for concern if you see your mail deliverer out of uniform. USPS spokesperson, Mary Dando, said these workers are new hires. They are being put on a route immediately, but are waiting for their uniforms.
"As you can imagine, in any situation, especially when people wear a uniform, it’s just [takes] a little bit of time from the transition from the academy to working on the streets regularly," Dando says.
There is a way to make sure your mail carrier is legitimate. Some may be out of uniform, but all will wear a USPS hat. It will have the USPS eagle on it.
