I've had two locks cut recently. How should I go about being compensated. I'm grieving. :/
Where was your dolly at the time the locks were cut? Who cut the locks?
Both times they were locked at the designated area we have set up for storage.
Supervisors cut the locks of whatever dolly they feel when they need one. A lot of times it's drivers as there are bolt cutters on the wall near the storage area.
Is there a way that you can secure the dolly in your pkg car?
No I work at a very large center and the routes are usually bricked out and you might not get the same truck.
If you have the cut locks I'd definitely seek out reimbursement especially if they were allowed to be locked in a designated area.
Funny story, at a previous job some of the drivers had their own pallet jacks, and sups would cut the locks and give them to drivers who absolutely needed one (they didn't want to buy more).
One guy locked his up again and was told to remove the lock so he cut the guardrail it was locked to in the building and slid off the lock and went on his way lol. Alot of yelling after that but since each party had something cut/damaged, nothing ever came of it.
Did you go on road without a dolly/hand cart?
If your pkg car is bricked out where do you keep the dolly while driving to your first stop?
When I was a new driver yes but not for a few years.
Put a lock on the bolt cutters.
I'm so flustered I can't sleep.
You may be SOL unless you have permission to lock your dolly.
They belong to UPS and if you did not get permission to lock it up, you may be out 2 locks.
Where I am, the dollies go with the package car, not the driver. One dolly for every package car.
I've cut locks myself. I'll be danged that you lock up a dolly and not come to work one day while I work and don't have one.
It's not your handcart to lock up. It's UPS's. They are just reclaiming their property. The same as you putting a Club on your neighbor's Ferrari's steering wheel and because he stole "your" Ferrari.
Had a PM Air driver lock up his dolly in the package car he likes to use and go on vacation for two weeks.
In my center they stopped allowing drivers to lock their handcarts. They announced it then started cutting locks.
Are all dollies kept in that container on the side of the building still? Or do some drivers still lock them to the handrails leading up to the locker rooms? If another driver cut your locks, you can't file a grievance against another employee, and unless you saw management actually cut it, I think you are SOL. Dolly? dolly? You don't need no stinkin' dolly, man. lol. The area I had was about 75% residential and I never used a dolly, but a lot of drivers back then used to just seat belt their dollies to the jumpseat. Course we kept pour own cars back then and people didn't just take stuff from you either.
Around his neck
Quit being a dick
For a change
A long time ago some drivers would buy their own handcarts that were better than the ones UPS provided. They would lock them up. Eventually UPS said none could be locked which eliminated any drivers wanting to buy their own. The UPS handcarts are a lot better now anyway. Free too.
So why is this center have a shortage of 2 wheel carts? Hasn't anyone filed to force management to provide enough of them? Contractually they are obligated to provide all tools needed for the drivers to do the job--------------or has that clause been eliminated too?
Look under the belt. Lots of handcarts under there.
