    If it isn't becoming increasingly aware to you ,that our Union is slowly giving in to things like U.P.S. defined health benefits, working holidays, weekends, longer part-time progression, 150 lbs. Pkgs, extension of single day vacation drivers, mgmt harrasment, implementation of technology that's sole purpose is to increase stops per hour and giving Central States right to take our yearly raises at will, just to name a few. Taking all of these things in consideration, can u imagine what's next, I.e., no raises continued reduced pay and benefits? Let's face it working for U.P.S. is no longer a good thing, due to continued give backs and concessions. I say everyone should get out while you can before our rights, benefits and wages are reduced to a point where working for U.P.S. is no different than working for D.H.L., Fed Ex, or even Joes pkg company!

    $32.99/hr, company paid benefits, 7 weeks vacation a year and a good pension at the end of your working career and you want everyone to quit.

    The money will come from the new TV show - UPS-TNG. Although The Original Series will still be the best. (but need to avoid that acronym ).

    Not quit, retire before our wages, benefits and pension are reduced to a point where retiring is impossible

    I thought wages and pension was increased this contract. Waiting to see how well Teamcare is going to be and don't care for the new 4 year progression and the increase in PT starting pay to the new min. wage.
     
  19. That's good. We will miss you.
