I am 54 years old and I have worked for a well-known pharmacy as a prescription delivery and collection driver for over 9 years. For the past approximately 6 or 7 years I have endured snide comments, been sworn at in front of other members, and humiliated in front of staff.
I'm constantly allocated unachievable routes, sometimes by over 1 hour, and am regularly unable to take an unpaid break—not even able to take a toilet break.
I have raised a grievance, which took 7 months to complete. Snide comments, bullying, and late finishing times were denied. Basically, the company stood by the team coordinator and manager.
They have driven me into the ground. I have told them that what the company is doing to me is inhumane. They still deny what they are doing to me, and I am stuck between a rock and a hard place and suffering badly with stress and anxiety.
I have found that there is no one there for me. Neither the company nor the union which let me down badly with the grievance.
I find that I have no one to turn to and I am feeling as though I have no choice but to leave a job that I once loved all because my team coordinator and manager are bullies.
