    Package_Donkey14 milk was a bad choice

    Starring down All-Time Record Low Temps today and tomorrow in my area. Wind Chills reaching -50 with white out conditions. So there's your answer fella's.... UPS will NEVER call off the delivery day for the safety of their employees. Not even when Hell Freezes over!

    Last week we were told no idle at lunch for the full time- 15 on, 15 off.

    I would love to see the diesels gel up!

    Good news states to the east of Minnesota.. It only got down to -23 here last night so there will be a heat wave headed your way eventually.

    Yup. Looking at -15 actual temperature tonight without wind chill. Hope my diesel don't gel up. Or brakes freeze. Won't be a good night to not have the engine running.

    Run it anyway. Let them give you a warning letter if it will make them feel better. You have a right to stay warm.

    Here in northern IL it's supposed to drop to -45 to -50 with the wind tonight and several of us (ramp employees) got messages from our supervisors saying "You NEED to be in tonight because of all the possible call-ins". Is it just me, or does the whole "beating you over the head with safety" thing get thrown out the window when it gets dangerously cold?

    I've experienced -20 with the windchill, I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around -50 with the windchill, good god!

    Good luck...

    Apparently not. The union is fully aware of this and is doing nothing. Telemetrics wins!
