I've been with ups for 12 years and for the majority of those years I've been pleased with my job. BUT over the last 4 years it has gotten progressively worse. I'm also a steward, and knew when I took that role I would have to find a median if I choose this as my career however the company has gotten so evil and vile I can't walk that line in between and haven't been able to. Don't know about the other centers but mine has gotten so bad that all managers are scared for their jobs and the only thing that matters are their numbers, not safety, no damages and definitely not workers moral. I never thought this company would go down so fast and don't think this is sustainable for long term success. I see packages getting smashed cause the belt is attached and stuff falling off on a daily basis, filed numerous grievances for safety to no avail, all they say is they will address it but they never do. This new contract proposal is a complete joke and the fact that heads of Our union endorse it only leads me to believe one thing, we are sold out! I'm not protected and either is my work or benefits, the company and union have joined together before that last contract (that everyone I know voted NO on) and we as a union are an after thought. I will always look after my people on my shift and have been offered money under the table to turn my back to which I've basically told 2 managers to kiss my ass! I have integrity and can't sell out my teamsters but that has put a huge target on my back from both sides (yes this is all very true) and I've now ruined my chances of going full time. You may say "they can't be vindictive" but yes they can and our. No matter what I do nobody above has my back, this world has changed to a corporate juggernaut and we have no protection because its been corrupted by greed. I'm currently trying to get out and better my life and it brings me great sadness to know I've wasted this much of my life to this once great company.
