    Look I only been working for 3 months so far for UPS. I am tired of the redicule and humiliation the supervisors do to me. I load a truck with a very high volume, really to much to handle by myself. I have gotten to the point where I have had it with the harassment coming from supervisors, the threats from them that I have started looking into the union contract and speaking with an agent. For the last 2 days I have enforced my union contract against the supervisors and they are not liking it. Threatening me, not sending me the extra loaders to help anymore, pulling away my help from me. I have sent a huge list of things that has happened the last 2 days and my thoughts about it to my union agent. What else should I do in this situation? I need help. I need result's.

    Play their game and win. Work as instructed, show up for work on time, don't lie, don't steal, and don't fight. File grievances and supplement your income. It's a game they can't win. Work as instructed with a smile and enjoy the extra money. The minute you lose your cool they win.

    You're still a Newbie. (No offense) You'll find out that at UPS, it's all about the numbers.

    Current higher uppers step over a dime to save a nickel.

    Best advice, do the best job you can and when your Sup yells or threatens you, just say "I'll do my best" and keep at it. Forget the BS and just do your job.

    Good luck

    Like the others said, you will learn the game. After a few years you won't even hear them half of the time. If the union doesn't help there is a 1800 number you can call. I've seen others call it and wraith has been brought down upon supervision. However there is usually backlash. My best advice is just say okay and keep doing what you are doing. Don't get angry and run off at the mouth I have done this and it has gotten me no where except in an office and more yelling. Just say okay and work at your on pace. I have never seen anyone fired for going to slow.

    I've never heard of loading "a" truck. Our loaders always handled more than one---usually 3 and sometimes 4.

    ^ one truck loader. A shopping mall route. Not a strip mall a mega mall.

    The harder you work, the more work you get.

    Working "by their methods" and at a pace that misloads are under control is easier on your body. The mind control tactics of the supes will quit when they see it's not working.

    File your grievances for over supervising your work and harassment if need be but call the 800# if they raise their voices or get threatening in posture.

    That is workplace violence and they are creating a hostile work environment which is punishable in court.

    No matter what always work as directed unless deemed unsafe. Any time you feel harasses document the time the altercation and any other witnesses present. If it is a true case of harassment the documentation will speak for itself and help you in a grievance hearing and or meeting with a shop steward or ba.

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    What's a 'pug', other than a small breed of dog?

    Sounds pretty easy loading four small dogs.

    You could put more than four pugs in the back of a pug.

    You need to pull your weight. You can't expect help everyday....everyone has their own trucks to load, right? I'm not saying you deserve to be harassed or ridiculed....but you're not contractually entitled to help unless moving overweights. Find your pace and get it done...if they send u help, great.,..otherwise it will just take longer to finish.

    I think we call them pups. 26 ft trailers. That is a lot of work for a new guy. Does everyone load this many. What percentage are you filling them?

    You assume the pups and long box are 100%. I would bet they are not.
