    U.P.S. Plans to Cut 1,800 Jobs - New York Times

    United Parcel Service said on Friday that it would cut 1,800 management and administrative jobs as it repositioned itself for a gradual recovery.

    About 1,100 employees will be offered buyouts, which are meant to streamline the company’s small-package segment in the United States. Other cuts will come through attrition and layoffs. The small-package segment represents roughly 60 percent of the company’s annual revenue. It handles shipments of up to 150 pounds by ground and air.

    Hi All,

    I am new to this forum... I have been with UPS for 13 years as a UPSer and a few as a temp.. More cuts??
    Does anyone know??? Rumor is more cuts? more realignments?
    I don't think we are being told the truth...I think UPS knows who is losing there jobs next... What have any of you ( non-union) Admin employees been told????
    I just looking for what anyone else knows..... I think just being told your site is being looked at next, and not to worry, is an unfair statement...

    Word is that the bloodletting begins again next week.
    The best thing is to get it over with so the company and people left can recover.
