    Does anyone happen to know the exactaly the ""union" rules of what the free time is in this area. I was hearing that our free time is anything before oct 15th,( not including training) and than everything after christmas.

    each area may have different language on the wording of and time periods. One question you definitely should ask locally.

    Beach if i were you, I'd go get a job somewhere else. You don't want to be sucked into this place because its about as close to hell as your ever going to get without dying. The pay and benefits are great but thats about it. The job physically kicks your ass and you'll never be nothing more than a piece of crap in the eyes of managment. Hope this helps

    Scratch- that came from the same person who told the techs to quit their whining. As I posted in that thread Brownie is consistent.

    Ace,
    UPS has always been about numbers, it doesn't matter if you wear Browns, wear a tie, or any other of the important jobs. If you hate your job so much, find one you do like. Nobody is forced to get up and walk through that gate five times a week. I've been here thirty years, still too young to retire, try to enjoy life instead of hating it. We all get upset with stupid things that are beyond our control.JMHO

    never said I hated my job! like any ups driver we like our regular customers and enjoy talking to them when we get a chance to ,mine help me when they can and depend on me .no one could do this job day in and day out if they hated their job totally,all I was saing was ups seems to have no loyalty to their staff you either produce or there is a problem,
    and that is just my opinion:cool:
