    Just a heads up for all the new drivers (and some of the old)...
    Here is some very good advice compiled together in the form of a survivor's guide to UPS:

    A little of it is outdated such as keeping a notebook (a phone documents much better along with pictures) And mine comes with OneNote which syncs with my computer and produces a searchable data base. I document everything!

    But the guide really has a lot of sage advice.

    Johnnyfootball2014 what is anti-teamsters about his advice:

    -Become involved in your Union, help your steward, listen to your BA.
    -Go to the Union meetings
    -Demand a steward when questioned by management
    -Demand to be treated with respect by management
    -Don't work off the clock
    -Don't lie, and let your steward/BA know how you will be answering questions at a disciplinary hearing.
    -Do nothing dishonest or illegal even if asked to do so by management.
    -Keep records of all interactions with management/document everything
    -Don't falsify delivery records even if told to do so by management
    -Don't take anything that is not yours, not even a pen
    -Don't forge signatures
    -Don't open packages
    -Don't steal time
    -Stay out of customer's houses
    -Don't flirt with customers
    -Report all accidents no mater how small
    -Refuse to drive unsafe vehicles
    -Don't sign anything you disagree with
    -Report all work related injuries as such
    -Use your own doctor for treatment, UPS's doctor can have split loyalties

    Yeah, I guess I am a troll for suggesting this stuff to new drivers o_O
