    To My Fellow UPS Workers,

    The purpose of this discussion thread is not to gripe or complain about conditions at UPS, management, the Union or for that matter anything at all about UPS. The sole purpose of this discussion thread is to discuss the following work-related issue with other employees as an initial step in engaging in some concerted activity to bring this issue up to the company as a group.

    It is my hope that by addressing this issue in concert we not only be working for our own mutual aid, protection and improved working conditions, but we will be working for the benefit of any and all coworkers that may have been adversely affected by this issue.

    In Article 18 Section 1 there is a sentence as follows:

    First line trailers will be swept on a daily basis.

    What does this mean?

    The ones I see being swept out everyday are the ones used for CPU's.

    Not sure what first-line trailer is, but our customer trailers are required to be swept and cleared of debris and pallets before taking them to a customer pickup, regardless of whether it is once a day, or ten times a day.

    It means First line trailers will be swept on a daily basis.

    But UPS rarely follows the contract.

    So it means First line trailers will NOT be swept on a daily basis.
