    This is a stupid idea that the company could come back and say is industrial sabotage or a work slowdown.

    I've got a signature if they are outside and it's something I know to be of value like electronics or a bike and such but you should just leave it behind the pot on the porch ring bell and knock and move on...

    nope, an actual term. If this sort of slow down could be proved and tied to a union official, UPS could go to the labor board and get compensation for financial damages from the union. That of course would be a pipe dream as it would be nearly impossible to prove. It might be demonstrated for individuals, however, which would leave them open to disciplinary action.

    -as a side note, the union official would have to be above a steward, as there is specific language in the contract stating the union cannot be held liable for illegal job actions started by stewards acting on their own.

    If it's a BOSE speaker system or a big LCD TV or if I know this particular lady is crazy, I get a signature.

    Otherwise, stop, drop, and roll on to your next stop.

    Getting a signature for every other stop would slow me down so much that it would offset any allowance I could possibly get, and likely get me a talking to.

    Well, thanks for the lesson but it still seems like an absolutely stupid term....now if a union person broke into a facility at night and slashed every package cars tires , that's one thing and I can totally understand that, but someone walking at a snails pace in 90 degree weather towards the end of a 10 hour dispatch..well that's just called being tired...

    I bet you would get a signature if the home owner was mowing her front lawn in a bikini that was way too small for her......right?

    No bud it's for real. The best bet is to do everything at ups as honest as possible. With all their information ,time and resources doing stuff like this is just a stupid idea.

    Industrial sabotage is quite definitely a real term.

    The OP is giving very bad advice---oh, sorry, VERY BAD ADVICE.

    I was told by my sup that rode with me last, get a sig, if they are there, out and about in the yard whatever. Then you get the ring bell wait allowance. :biting:I dont want a sig, I want to get back in my truck and leave, duh. Who gets a sig for an amazon little cd box. ??????? He just wants me to look better since Im in his group. I said I do look better, no accidents, no injuries. no wrecks. I show up every day. On time, and I finish every day. Thats my Mar.

    If customer is outside, I get a signature. 1 year ago I was called into office for a package that went missing. I sheeted as met customer. I did not remember the stop as I was covering 1 of the 20 trips I covered. center manager asked why I didn't get a signature and how it was irresponsible to use met customer. At that time I was more of a yes sir kind of guy. Now I would say, "seems to me you have issues with the person that put that option in the DIAD". Since then I get a signature whenever customer is outside.

    Why doesn't this surprise me? Padding stops and stealing time.

    How am si padding stops or stealing time? I was called into the office and told that I was irresponsible for not getting a signature. To me it is 2 things, 1) Working as directed. 2)Covering my ass.

    Getting a signature while the consignee is standing there for a residential stop that has not been designated as a non-release stop in the DIAD is stealing time.

    Sheeting the air and ground for the same stop delivered at the same time as two separate stops is padding stops.

    Hey Einstein, Where did i EVER say i sheet air and ground delivered at the same time as 2 stops????? Never did, never will.

    As far as getting signature, I am working as directed. The center manager was looking into me paying for the merchandise and questioning my actions and honesty. I will NOT put my self in that position again. Also, keep in mind my center services parts of the "ghetto".

    I see why their is so much disdain towards you. I was one of the posters that gave you the benefit of the doubt, but I see I was wrong.
