A couple of things… 250 an hour… wha…? It seems that UPS management and soups are smoking something a little more powerful then their usual. The new agenda is to have each preload employee load four cars and be at 250 an hour. To me this screams to keep people moving at a peak pace throughout the year, yet I also believe its only temporary. The union doesn’t see pieces per hour as a job requirement, defiantly not as a production issue. I cant stand how they push this stuff on us even know it pretty much isn’t ( or shouldn’t ) to be allowed ( mentioned ). I don’t really mind getting extra work, since they gave me another 30 minutes on the clock for it. Has one else noticed this in their HUB / center? Another thing is on Monday ( since the start of peak ) the bright idea was to run the line 30 minutes with chargers working with no pre load around. This in my opinion causes problems, cages stay full all night and chances of misloads seem to go up. The main building manager here must’ve wanted to get corporate of her back since they’ve been hounding her to buy out the position a few years before retirement ( benefits, 401k and stock options apply ). Anyone else see this happening?
