A driver's wife has a stroke and needs three brain operations. Over this very difficult and stressful period, the driver continues to attend work, having just a little time off with domestic leave. He also has six shifts off sick, adding up to two items, so ... management give him a warning. And uphold it on appeal.
They're all heart, LUL management.
This appalling case certainly gives you an insight into management's agenda with their new attendance and discipline policies. If they get them through, any one of us could be next in line for their callous, disciplinarian, inhuman bullying. All the more reason to fight it.
