    Somebody hit one of the mechanics tool boxes and the mechanic reported the damage to the del sup and center mg they never called in the accident so it doesn't go against the buildings numbers if we break a mirror it's an accident
     
  4. Accidents are covered up all the time. It's your word against theirs. The center manager, Sup and the driver/mechanic will all deny to save their own asses. Don't get involved.

    I get where you're coming from but that doesn't effect us in the least. You mentioning it is "30 to Life" is just :censored2: about something." They'll eventually get caught as much like everything else they keep getting away with it until they don't, then it comes down hard.

    I guess I am just bitter from all the crap they have given me over all these years

    Yeah, they win when you take it personal. I've lost all loyalty, so its easy for me to not care about what they do unless it effects me or my brothers.

    Yep, totally justified anger for most long term UPS employees. But God is just and sees all. No one gets away with anything in the end.

    They just fired a preloader in my building for gross insubordination a cardinal sin for not putting up a piece of paper on the back of a pkg car that's the type of stuff that ticks me off its like when you were a kid at a playground and playing a game with a ball and the kid who owned the ball made all the rules and changed them when it suited him at least you could beat his :censored2:

    But here's the thing, after you beat his ass, he's still got the ball and still making the rules, you're just not there anymore to see it.

    There is no repercussions a grievance they just laugh at them so we just take beating for the rest of our careers

    And I laugh off their warning letters and ignore any pressure they try to apply. Perhaps 1 in 30 of them have made it through to retirement. I consider them temporary employees who have no clue how to manage. None of their games work if you don't allow them to affect you.

    30 to life,

    Although it may seem that way that is not necessarily true.

    In businesses where general work rules exist then all employees are required to follow them, management employees as well.

    Management employees are actually supposed to set the example with regards to following general work rules.

    In a large corporation it is even more important that management employees follow the work rules established by the corporate leadership.

    Sincerely,
    I

    30 to life,

    What was the reason for the preloader to not follow this direction from his supervisor?

    Not following general work rules or company policy is very different from not doing what you are told by your supervisor.

    If a supervisor gives a direction and it doesn't violate company policy, the collective bargaining agreement and doesn't put the employee or another employee in danger , then the direction must be followed.

    If qualifying directions are not followed then that is insubordination and must be disciplined accordingly.

    Sincerely,
    I

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    As long as the mechanic was made whole and there was no damage to the PC, why in the world should it be reported??

    You need to mind your own business.

    I've seen ups vehicle vs ups vehicle accidents covered up at a DM level. Keep your mouth shut and keep it in your back pocket in case of emergency.
