    I often ask myself:

    Am I more part of the problem at UPS or am I part of the solution at UPS?
    I only come close to an answer when I break down the walls of denial in myself and reach for my inner Intetgrity.

    What about you?

    Sincerely,
    I

    I really don't know what UPS has to do with this !

    UPS pays people extremely well to help them service the customers.
    No matter what anyone says on this message board, I'm happy that I work for a company that has smart enough people at the top to steer us through that major recession (depression) we just experienced and actually make money doing it.

    I will expect to be taken care of this coming labor contract for the more work and hours I produced for UPS with the additional harassment.

    But it is clear, we DO NOT work for some evil company that preys on the unfortunate.

    NEVER, EVER bite the hand that feeds you !!

    HEFFERNAN,

    Do you love money?

    Did you even take the time to read the article or view the video?

    UPS is a huge American Company.

    You can defend it all you want but denying that UPS isn't part of the culture in America would be simply denying the truth.

    Sincerely,
    I

    Why don't you think about all the people under you who get stepped on and spit on by UPS on a daily basis? Oh wait, it's OK because it's not you. Way to look out for your fellow teamster.

    Yeah, because UPS is as bad as the bankers and mortgage companies that preyed on the people that couldn't pay their bills. :crazy2:

    You are full of it.

    They are a successful company that makes profits on service !! Not fees, interest charges, or payday loans !!!

    Trust me, UPS doesn't do everything right or treat its employees great at times but that happens in every big company.

    As for myself, I signed up to work late and get paid great !! I started at 9.50 an hour and worked my :censored2: off to my $32 plus.
    It pays for my mortgage, car, lights, heat, beer, food, baseball tickets, etc !!

    You say I must love money ? Well, I must love air too !! I need both to survive.
    I'm not gonna live like a pennyless hippie in the mud and sing about corporate greed.

    HEFFERNAN,

    I hope the fear of the truth about UPS doesn't carry over into fear of truth about yourself.

    My experience has shown that most positive change in a person's life comes from fearlessly facing the truth of ones shortcoming, or sin's if you will.

    The love of money, greed is destroying everything in this company and this country.

    Do you love money?

    Sincerely,
    I

    HEFFERNAN,

    I did not say you must love money? I asked you "Do you love money?"

    Do you love money?

    Who says I haven't !
    I've worked in the same center for 18 years.
    Made hardly no money, had no seniority, up at 330 am every morning, went to school or my part time job afterwards.
    I did it because I saw the big picture !!

    Fast forward to last year. Had the worst center manager ever. Loved the toxic environment he created and I was even suspended for 2 weeks !

    We all deal with BS

    It's how you handle it that defines you !!!!!!

    You are an (I)diot

    I quote from my last post :

    HEFFERNAN,

    A lot of people handle it by justifying and rationalizing things and oppressive influences in their lives for the sake of profit.

    Do you sympathize with the plight of the working class men in this company or are you just glad that you are finally getting yours and if anyone don't like it they should just quit and work for Fedex?

    Sincerely,
    I

    HEFFERNAN,

    Calling names is not very mature conduct.

    You are incorrect. Every IQ test that I have ever taken has not agreed with your assessement.

    You are actually comparing life sustaining air with money?

    How does this comment define you?

    Are you hostile to the Truth?

    Sincerely,
    I

    Why do I have to sympathize when I walked that life myself ?

    This country has been decimated by whining little liberals that want their share without putting the work in !!!

    I chose this line of work. I chose to work 3.5 hours at 4am. I chose to wait my turn on the seniority list. I chose to pay my dues and be a great TEAMster. I also chose that I'll eat dinner after 8 every night. I chose I'll never play softball or hockey after work. I chose to be scrutinized. I chose to work hard. I chose to get my hands dirty every night. I chose to work alongside other drivers that work as hard as I do !



    You can choose to work elsewhere !

    HEFFERNAN,

    You do not have to sympathize with anyone you do not choose to that is your right. Which you clearly seem to exercise.

    HEFFERNAN, You really chose this? I encourage you to really think about this.

    Is this the dream you had for yourself when you were young or this this really something you just kind of fell into and are making the best of?

    The reality to life is not loving money, it is how you care about people.

    That is what truly defines a person, believe it or not, that will not change this truth.

    Sincerely,
    I

    Oh, it's the guy who likes to ask questions and never answers when asked. You know you can ask these types of questions in your break room with people you work with. I have a feeling the reason you can't might have something to do with how you speak to people, even if your on line personality is an extreme of that.

    The condecending tone you take in your posts lacks any sincerity and is disingenuous. You portray yourself as someone wanting to have discussion, while asking the same questions over and over when someone does respond. To top it all off, when asked about your own experiences in what ever capacity you work for UPS, you act as though that's no one buisness.

    I'm still waiting for questions to be answered in other threads that seem to die when you get called out.

    QKRSTKR,

    Disappointed in your contribution.

    I think you could do a better job.

    You might want to try making some sort of point in relation to the topic.

    Did you even read the document or view the video?

    Sincerely,
    I

    Jackburton,

    Nice contribution.

    I am flattered that you make everything about I but you really need to start contributing more up to your potential.

    I think you are capable of much more.

    Sincerely,
    I

    I said it before, I'll say it again. UPS only abuses those people who allow themselves to be abused.
