    Drunk drivers for dropping female sub editors after night shifts

    We are a team of female sub editors who work in a newspaper. We have been allotted with dropping service. After the last edition, we have drunk drivers dropping us home. It is very scary for the female staff. We had a word with the HR department

    Safety is primary concern for all the women... You should strongly protest this to your hr department.. This kind of behavior is not tolerable there are many issues relating this matter is not only the security of employees and also the drivers are drunken this is criminal activity which your company is not addressing the issue... You should not compromise in this matter take this seriously and there is only solution to this problem is the hr department should remove those drivers who are drunk. There should be test on the state of drivers before they drop you all...

    This is quite a concerning matter and immediate action should be taken against this.Otherwise there might be various bad consequences which can not only affect you all but also the driver concerned and the reputation of your firm.Hence,you all should solve this problem as fast as possible.

    -You should give the concerned driver a chance for improvement.
    -So, try to solve the matter without involvement of higher authority first.
    -Talk to the driver when he is not in drunk condition and give a chance of improvement.
    -Explain him the problems that may arise because of his driving when drunk.
    -Give a warning and tell him not to drink before leaving you all at home after office work.
    -If he improves it is good,or you all have to take strict action against him.
    -Complaint to the higher authority regarding this issue.
    -Explain the problem you all are facing and how it can ruin your life by explaining all the negative aspects of the issue.
    -Request for immediate positive response and action on this matter.

    Hi aspirant

    You should definitely talk to your editor in this regard and he is the best person person to help you in this matter. You should not risk your safety by going home with drunk drivers as this would not only cause accidents but they can also misbehave with you. Thus to maintain your integrity as well for your safety you should definitely complain against the drunk drivers to your editor.You should not hesitate to do so and fight this situation with courage and intelligence.

    Tell your editor that you and your team of female sub-editors have been allotted with dropping service. Thus you hope that the drivers take you to your home safely after your last edition is finished. But the drivers dropping all of you are very irresponsible and drink before dropping you. They are drunk while driving and this is really very risky for you. In this way your safety is being sacrificed and also under the influence of alcohol they may misbehave with you. So you request him to teach them a lesson so that they don't repeat such behaviour or replace them with some other more responsible.

    I am sure your editor will take care of your problem. Good luck and Thanks
