Hi everyone, I have a dissiplinary for imsubordination. The thing is it’s not at the place at work and at the head office 1/2 hr away. I don’t drive. I’ve told them and they’ve told me to catch the bus. Do work have to provide me transport to get to the dissiplinary?

Is there a reason you can’t catch a bus?

I can see why you have a disciplinary for insubordination.

No, why would they? Unless there are no public transport links in which case you might have a point.

Also, having a go about transport when you’re already up on a disciplinary for insubordination isn’t really the best idea is it? Unless you want to lose your job.

There is a certain irony here. You should get the bus.

Are you asking if they ought to pay your bus fare?

“Ive refused to follow rules at work and i am being disciplined for it. AIBU to not follow rules about any disciplinary procedures?”

Surely if you want to keep your job you should be falling over yourself to ensure you get There?

Seriously? You are going for a disciplinary for insubordination and want them to pay your transport because you can't drive?

How many days till they fire you..,🤣

No, they don’t.

There are people who drive professionally. They’re called taxis. Get one.

I'm sure if you think about It, you will realize it is you responsibility to get yourself there.
Do you want to keep this job?

sneakysneak Wed 09-May-18 18:23:14

Nice one 🤔

scurryfunge Wed 09-May-18 18:23:27

The bus route number is P45. HTH

BerkInBag Wed 09-May-18 18:23:28

Could you get on your bike?

Is there no public transport? If you’re in a big city, 30 minutes probably only translates into a short bus journey. This really doesn’t seem like the right time to be insisting on a taxi.

Corse I want to keep the job

Then get the bus!

blueskyinmarch Wed 09-May-18 18:26:23

You are joking, aren't you? You are going for a disciplinary and you are quibbling about transport? Get a bus/taxi/lift if you want to keep your job.
