    Yes..its a new "sub-contracting" scheme by the company to stop making the 2nd or 3rd attempt to homes. After the first not in 1 the diad will alert you that the package, depending on availability to your route, and generates an intercept to forward the package to the "access point" the next business day where it will be held for 5 business days for the customer to pickup. The stops can be deli's or shipping stations. Non union employees then make a delivery when the customer picks it up from them. For each package the Access Point business gets 50 cents. Report ANY such Access Points to your local. Its a clear contract violation since it is subcontracting.

  2. Old news. And it's not a contract violation. Do you consider the UPS Store to be subcontracting since they aren't owned by UPS?

    It is not subcontracting.

    A union UPS driver still delivers it. Who cares what happens after that.

    We make three attempts our local doesn't let them do it they tried. It's just another way they can milk more production and cut routes.

    There is no local that can tell the company how to run their business.

    What is the difference between that and Surepost, the mail uses a lot of contractors that are not union.

    I want our Post Office work back. It's BULL*%**

    One of the larger size post offices on a route I cover used to get 20-30 a day. Now they get 350-400. We need that work back

    Shocker. If we got that work back, you might have to actually put in an 8 hour day. Could you handle that?

    They most assuredly can, within the constraints of the collective bargaining agreement in place.

    Get some rest and think about it.

  14. You're assuming we would get that volume, which I doubt we would. Surepost works for shippers because it's cheap and convenient. Nothing stoping them from going usps which is cheaper. We have no leg to stand on.

    How is it subcontracting? The package is delivered on the first delivery attempt. The customer picks it up when they want to.

    Yeah, it's usually UPS stores who hold the package. We deliver to UPS store, they now use the "mychoice" delivery point, which UPS makes money on.

    MyChoice or whatever it is, is there to make UPS money....not create jobs.

    How long does the Acess Point hold the packages?
    5 Business days, the same as at the Customer Counter?
    If so, we could get the pickups from the Acess Points for the unclaimed items as well.
    COD's cannnot be left at an Acces Point, or it can, and those folks have to collect the COD on it?

    Packages are held for seven calendar days before being returned to the shipper and in that case, a pickup request would be made for the driver to pickup the package and RTS. No CODS allowed at Access Point locations.
