When it Rains

I went into my interim boss's office office on Friday, you may remember my boss/friend has Pancreatic cancer, but more about that in another post, he said "I have something to talk to you about."
I seems that a difficult counselor, I'll call him 'Brian,' has complained about me to the "head office" and has goner to the union attorney. He complained about a list of things that my boss refused to show me-he didn't want to upset me, and 'Brian' asked for a change of senior counselors. He is heavily into the union. It all started when I forgot to approve his vacation with 3 weeks. I did approve it verbally, and put it in my vacation, days out calendar, but it must be done in writing and he filed another union grievance through against me, using the union Foreman, I'll call "Ivory," a woman who has been bullying me since I took this position.
Apparently since my former boss and dear friend retired (due to her illness) I have become her replacement for retaliation.
I wish I could retire tomorrow...

Goodness! So, you are new to this position but no one is willing to allow you a little time to adjust to the learning curve? You are just suppose to be perfect?

Actually, I've been there for about 5 years, but when my friend became to be the manager (and was very rough and universally hated) well,I was closely identified with her. She's gone and I'm left to reap the vitriol.
