In a decision handed down yesterday, a federal court in California allowed a former UPS package driver (17-year veteran) to proceed with his retaliation and wrongful termination lawsuit. Driver alleged he was fired in retaliation for exercising his right to file and prosecute overtime grievances and for complaining about workplace safety, i.e., excessive stops and on-road hours. UPS argued the court lacked jurisdiction and the claims were preempted by the NLRA and LMRA, among other arguments. The case will now proceed to trial. A good result for UPSers who dare to fight for their rights.
