    UPS in Sacramento has filed a change of operations in Redding. Moving 1 job to Eureka and another to Lathrop. This change has left an already depleted feeder department to ruin. We lost 2 jobs at bids in may and now 2 more. This takes us from 15 to 11 jobs. As a 7yr relief driver this is hard to swallow. Although I'm not alone. Nobody in our department seems to want to retire. (can't blame them) and nobody wants to follow. Personally this bumps me back from number 7 relief to number 9. In a building with 11 jobs. Thank you MS. MO. And labor for ruining my career and that of others. I hope they see this.

    Personal feelings aside, were the moves justified?

    It's really to bad that we don't have a manager that care about his drivers or preserving the work in his center. I guess all I can do is hope that they transfer him out and get someone who will fight for our jobs.

    Not necessarily true.

    Absolutely not. They could have started a driver an hour earlier and ran him to Lathrop and trailers would have made service 2 hrs sooner.. the move is purely an attempt to further the attempt of eliminating the redding feeder dept.

    I see this company trip over a stack of dollar bill to pick up a nickel every day. This is just another example.

    Yes. The proper 45 day change of ops was filed with the union. As a shop steward I was sent the email immediately.

    What was the union's response?

    Unfortunately there is not a lot they can do. They are trying to find an angle to stop it but it's not looking good.

    Ok.... when I say manager. I'm referring to the feeder manager. Business agent works for the union. Sorry for any confusion

    The only thing that they can do is make sure the company follows the contract to the letter.
