    Can i use my phone to record conversations. Sure would help if im allowed. State law says as long as one side of the party is aware of the recording, it is ok.. Could i do this in the hub? It would help to prove my case when management is in the wrong.

    Despite what you are being told here so far, you actually can record any conversation.

    The only problem is, in this instance and most others, you only get to play that card once.

    After that, the collateral damage will vary from scenario to scenario, and at UPS they may take the position of discharge.

    In the end, you will be far better off establishing your credibility through your body of work, rather than trapping a "rat" into saying something they regret on tape.

    Get a reputation of taping people, and nobody will ever talk to you again.
    Would you blame them?

    Yes. I have been for almost 32 years. I even record every phone call that goes thru my cell

    Have you ever had occasion to use any of those recordings? If so, how did that work out for you?

    Recording a conversation on a personal cell phone is an entirely different situation than actively recording a manager in a UPS facility.

    I was talking about the video of Michael Moore's The awful truth:UPS where they filmed an interview allegedly at corp.
    Pretty funny.
