    UPS dismisses 250 Queens drivers after they protested against long-time employee's dismissal - NY Daily News

    UPS has delivered a special message to 250 of its Queens drivers: You’re fired!

    The Atlanta-based company is booting 250 of its unionized drivers from its Maspeth facility because they walked off the job for 90 minutes Feb. 26 to protest the dismissal of a long-time employee, UPS told the Daily News.

    Twenty employees were terminated Monday after their shifts — and the remaining 230 notified that they’ll be canned as soon as replacements are trained, a company spokesman said.

    is there anyway for them to say they just go to work late? drivers at my hub get there at 8am but dont leave till like 9am.
    if they were firing me i would use up all my sick days, i mean if i ever get a notice saying they need time to train ppl well good luck to
    them since im not going in to give them time to do what they want.
