    In Thomas J. Robidoux, et al v. United Parcel Service, the Superior Court of Hartford found that Because it appears that the defendant is separately encouraging its drivers to deliver faster and more efficiently on the one hand and criticizing them heavily for unsafe work habits on the other hand without any coordination of those two forces, the court can only conclude that the safety program is but a facade. This conclusion is reinforced by the fact that the company does not investigate the cause of the injury. These two people were disciplined not for violation of safety but for filing workers compensation claims" REPORT ADDED 6/20/05

    Its a systematic way to replenish the troops.
    Most drivers are safe,but a select few are chosen for "ex"termination.Often the reason given for dismissal have nothing to do with what one is accused of.If they decide they dont like you,you`re gone.

    Some people repeatedly look for ways to not be on the job. If it isn't an injury, then it's frequent sick calls. In my 27 years at UPS, most the people who were fired had it coming: in fact, there are loads more that ought to thank God everyday that they still have a job.

    most of the time your right sendagain,but my heart goes out to the guy with a sick family member who`s scrambling to do both jobs.Its sad to see a good guy go down for that.But production is their only interest

    Here you go sendagain6160 .This came from a post hearing brief from OSHA.
    I read a lot of it some good reading about UPS and there postion on injurys .UPS thinks that people that are injuryed are actually depressed not hurt.It is carzy the crap they are trying to pull,even had this quack saying this is so .

    crappie,
    What else will the company pull out of their rear end to keep from paying worker's comp claims?
    For those interested, scroll to the top of page 31 of the brief to read the testimony of some doctor from Sweden about how we aren't injured....we're just depressed.
    It appears his testimony was quickly disavowed.

    Back off crappie she has the same right as you to be on here. Why does it bother you that she posts a lot, feeling a little insecure are we. And what is Your function on this board? If you you don't care for what she "cuts and pastes" then skip over it but don't attack someone who brings a little brightness to the board with good recipes, jokes and good sayings.[​IMG]

    Spam is when it is forced down your throat unrequested.

    Reading something you don't like repetitively would just be called stupid. [​IMG]

    I have no interest in food recipes so I never click into that thread and enough friends that think they know my sense of humor forwarding things to me so I rarely click into more lucks other favorite thread.

    For those that like tons of humor and recipes more luck is performing a service.

    Keep up the good work ML for those who appreciate it.

    Spam comes in many forms .When I go to a chat room in Yahoo and I see people postting links after links on porn I call that spam.Some people might want to click the links on porn so be it .I still call it spam.

    So, spam by your definition is anything you come across in the public domains that you are not interested in.

    Spam is a nuisance, but you have it worse than the rest of us.[​IMG]

    Spam is one of the best pre-cooked lunch meats out there. It goes great with some eggs and toast for breakfast, or you can fry some pieces of it up on the skillet and make some spam fried rice. Hot or cold, Original or Hot with Tobasco Sauce - SPAM...it's whats for dinner!

    Crappie - If you dont like my post, too bad. I really don't care, and quite frankly...you'll get over it. SPAM is unsolicited - you on the other hand registered for this forum and clicked on this thread. Therefore, nothing posted by any of the registered users thusfar has been "SPAM".
