    Do Black lives matter to Big Brown? - Socialist Worker

    Why has UPS been described as an ethical company? In a press release, Big Brown stressed that "the World's Most Ethical Companies designation recognizes those companies that align principle with action, [and] work tirelessly to make trust part of their corporate DNA."

    But there's something else engrained deep in UPS's "corporate DNA": racism. Across the U.S., UPS has singled out and systematically harassed African American workers, leading to civil right lawsuits, protests by the NAACP and, in one case, a picket against racism by a local Teamsters union.

    Almost everyone at UPS had been singled out and systematically harassed at some point.

    UPS is an equal opportunity abuser.

    An old timer told me the first time I was harassed by management..." don't worry about it. it's just your turn."
