    As an Air Walker for Ups (local 804 ) it seems as though Air walkers/Air Drivers really have no language or say so in the company .

    Usually part-time that walks off air from a drivers package car.
    It is commonly in high-urban downtown city's financial district.
    Think NYC, Chicago, etc.
    Not Podunk, MN.

    There is specific language in the contract regarding the use of air walkers.

    Air Walkers sounds slow--------I would expect UPS to call them Air Runners or Joggers or Sprinters. P.S. Podunk, Mn. has a great stripper bar.

    Look under Art. 40. You do not have any say so in the company.

    Usually takes a few years of "air walking" before they move you up to the Board of Directors...

    When every management in operations is spoon fed directives and numbers to show on paper, at center level NO ONE REALLY does have any say hourly OR salary... Like others have posted....

    PT Air Walkers has to be the very bottom of the pecking chain. Followed by PT Air Walker's PT supervisor.
