    Email just out from Bronczek.... That raise you thought you were getting in March will be delayed, (if it comes at all). Would not surprise me a bit if they were just stringing us along.

    Stringing us along? If you had to move all your stuff from one apartment to one across town and were going to cut ties with 5 friends, are you going to do it before the move or wait until they've help you and then tell them to hit the road?

    And like I said until they tell us different I'll have to assume there's a new system in place and we'll get raises. Guess they are telling us different, don't you think?

    Might be time to switch from apathy to actively creating chaos for the customers.

    This could be a power play by Fred to force UPS to get tough with the Teamsters in the current negotiations.

    This gives UPS even more bargaining power to tell the union the party is over on their wage scale and benefits....

    That will only work if we let it. If we fight back by driving his service down it strengthens the Union's hand. Freddie thinks he can make m me and my family a pawn in his greedy little game? He is in for a surprise.

    Service has been driven down.
    Look at the disaster of last peak and the issues with Apple.

    Corporate could care less about morale, they may see helping diminish the Teamsters as best for long term, even if it strengthens their arch rivals hand in the short term.

    Knock out the IBT, and you'll have no one left to complain about the Ground model or the RLA..

    Then We need to work that much harder. I bet we could drive off Apple in a month if we tried.

    The carrot on a string has worked for almost 40 years now. Why stop now? This is all part of our "contribution" to the $1.7B, as if we weren't already being drained dry. Has Mr. Bronczek's raise been delayed? Oh, he just sold about $7M in stock, so he's just scraping by.

    This company makes me sick.

    I think the joke will eventually be on them.

    You are free to leave. I remember reading in here somewhere UPS is always hiring.

    I am also free to voice my opinion here. You can always move to North Korea. I hear they have a little fat man that doesn't like free speech. Otherwise don't read the posts on this website.

    They're free to stay as well and complain if they so choose.
