A bunch of us spent a week down in Portland, Oregon well over a month ago to train, and we have't finished center training or actually worked at our local center yet. I talked to some local permanent drivers who are stressing out, working 12 hours and bringing packages back. What gives? 1 The center supervisor says: "volume is way down"; "hang in there" (and starve) So...why not spread some of the love around, and relieve some of the over-worked regular guys? We can't just sit on-call everyday until 11AM for UPS so maybe we get to work one day. Heck, we all get canned by 12/31/06, anyway. This sucks! Do any Teamster regulars know what is really happenning? When the holiday rush hits, when it's dark, 10 degrees out, and there is 2 feet of snow and ice on the ground, they are going to get buried, and have a lot of really unhappy UPS customers who aren't getting their packages delivered.
