It's time to stop letting UPS management get away with their status-quo operation. It's time to start holding management and union delegates accountable at every level. It's time to force UPS and the Teamsters to uphold and adhere to the contracts in which they ink and therefore agree to. It's incumbent upon each and every Teamster, regardless of job or title, to not allow contract violations to go unnoticed. A response is needed and it starts with you, stop looking away and going along to get along. It serves no purpose and you aren't doing yourself or anyone else of importance (union coworkers) any favors. You might think you're gaining something, but in reality you're the one losing. I'm running into too many people who are afraid to make a wave, scared of their own shadow, walking on eggshells around management. Why exactly are you paying union dues again? The main purpose of a union is to improve workplace conditions and treatment. Stop being a doormat for your local management team and start fighting for your contractual and constitutional rights. I promise you, your favors and turns of the head will be forgotten if you ever stumble into a situation where they want to make an example of someone. If all of us did our part and forced the issue, favoritism and headhunting would be a thing of the past, they cannot target everyone. What you do on a local level can have an impact on the national level. It starts at your local, in your building and in your center; stand up and be counted as a Teamster.
