Yes I am okay to wait.
I was called in to this informal procedure originally releasing me from my full duties, I was told it was just informal. After seeking advice and help from the union reps in the end they did not release me from my full duties and kept it informal. However I signed am informal action plan whereby if I was late again depending on how genuine my late incident was it may lead to discliplinary action. The informal procedure was not agreed by the union. However if I raise in grievance which is well within my rights I could do so. I was told I would win this however my employer has every right to place me on the poor performance procedure which is agreed by the union
Thanks for the response. The management mentioned I am not the only person to have an informal action against me. I understand there is no excuse to be late. However after I do raise a grievance and they do formal proceedings, this to me shows I had not had an informal discussion with my manager. Usually an informal discussion can be taken anywhere and just a short discussion, whereby I believe I didnt need to commit to anything.
