    Yeah, I clicked and got the same thing. I have to say it's annyoing that all the threads seem to be getting moved to labor relations or whatever. This is the most frequent area on teh site that I visit, it made sense that they were in here.

    Why not just combine the two sections into one big UPS discussion?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Because there are those of us who have little interest in the labor forum but enjoy the discussions forum.

    A mod did not delete this thread originally. This is a question for Cheryl, but I believe the problem is related to a link she may have posted. I have seen this problem come up before, its a technical glitch. As far as me moving some threads to the Labor Forum, that is where they belonged in the first place. I did that as a response to a member's comment. If a post concerns a contract matter, then it should go in the Labor Forum.

    Does "fatal error" mean someone was killed when this happened???

    Cheryls name is in there, someone should call and make sure she's alright.

    I can understand contract talks going to a labor forum, but I think some of the threads that were moved there would be more of a benefit if viewed by the masses in this general forum, rather than the relatively few that take in the labor forum.

    I don't really check out the labor forum that much either Upstate. I guess I was shocked to see stuff moved, I didn't realize it was union stuff until now.

    as a practical matter, just about any discussion not centered on ups technologies, united way, automotive, and maybe a few others, would qualify to go there. labor issues are the staple of existence at ups.

    the problem is that many threads morph into other subjects as well, or sidebar discussions, many times entering all of the criteria of many of the other forums, all in one thread.

    sometimes in trying to make a site more user friendly, you create layers that leave other section of the site, like the other forums, not nearly so well traveled, and a lot of great posts get overlooked.

    its one of the great hazzards of setting up a website community that has this much activity.

    maybe the other forum should be called union issues instead of labor. that way union discussions about union issues go there, like hoffa or the strike that wasnt. that would leave threads that deal with labor in the main forum, since so many upser issues involve the contract

    just my thoughts
