On August 22 2009 I was called to the office to face allegations of creating a hostile environment within my department which is the Meat Market of Sweetbay Supermarket chain store 1749 PLANT CITY FL. I have been accused of calling one of the meat associates, sorry for the language but a (F---ING B--CH) and that they have four or more people that have said that they have heard me say these exact words.
I have not said this. If I have said any thing at all derogatory it has been because of the constant discriminating and stressful environment I have been placed in. The problem consists of the friendship that our female associate and our assistant meat manager have. They spend a lot of time talking in the meat department office and in the cooler among other places through out the store. I have had no problem with their friendship. The problems revolve around the work that is getting put off on my self among others with in the department. [continued below]....
This has been seen first hand by others out side my department and from within. People that have seen this are as fallowed, seafood lead, seafood associate, seafood associate, meat associate, meat cutter. My meat manager has even had to come in and get on to this female associate for not getting the product wrapped in a timely manner.
I have been to upper management more than once about the problem and nothing has been done. So there for how is one to feel. It first brought up to the store manager (not by myself). Then it has been brought up to my department head by me. Once more to my assistant meat manager. It was brought up again to the assistant store manager. Then it was brought up to the costumer service manager. Then once again to my assistant manager. It was then brought up again to another assistant store manager and my manager. At this point I was told quote ( This Just Needs To Just Go Away) by my manager. Finely I took it out of the department to our seafood manager. She has told me that it has been brought up to other managers. I am sure that with all the cameras that proof of this can be found.
I would like it known that there were no problems in the meat department befor this female associate came to this store. I have been in this line of work for 20+ years and I have never seen a problem get handled like this. When this matter was first brought up one of the two should have been removed from the department. It is Sweetbays own policy that I have fallowed. They have an open door policy that states you may go to whom you feel comfortable talking to about problems. I did this and nothing was done. So I ask why. If you cant fallow them and believe in the policies, why have them.
