    You would think that a company that makes BILLIONS of dollars in profits every year would be smarter about the way they treat their employees.

    HARASSMENT DOES NOT WORK IN THE LONG RUN !!!

    when I am harassed, I slow down and do everything by the book. when I am praised and patted on the back, I go out of my way to work harder.

    it's really that simple.

    hasn't anyone of the higher ups ever read a Norman Vincent Peale book? A Clement Stone book? a John Templeton book? a Og Mandino book? a bible?

    have they ever learned about the "Golden Rule?"

    can you imagine what the profits would be if UPS actually treated us right?

    the profits would triple.

    The sad part is you are the minority at UPS. Most people are sheep and try to avoid confrontation anyway possible. What they don't realize is they are just feeding the fire by doing this.

    Anger and fear are very powerful motivators. In abusive relationships the energy that these create is capitalized on. We are tools that generate income, nothing more. There is a much more effective way to do things and they know it, but it involves good ethics and mutual respect rather than micromanagement and dehumanization.


    These are MY opinions. Others are available.

    Learning to play management's games will serve employees better in the long run than wishing things will change. Vets should help newer employees understand the rules of the game.

    Management isn't going to change tactics...the Alabama shooting is a prime example of that. It hit the news...then was quietly swept under the rug...to be forgotten by many until something like that happens again. Keep moving...nothing to see here, folks.

    The problem is, turnover would lower dramatically if employee satisfaction was important. UPS is stuck in the part-time, low wage structure and new, young and fresh blood coming in. That trumps anything. Both corporations, Teamsters and UPS feed off of this.

    UPS would actually be a better place if everyone followed the methods EVERYDAY instead of just when they are :censored2: off.

    In my experience the folks who retaliated against the company by "following the methods" whenever they were :censored2: off didn't really follow the methods, they just laid down.

    I think many in package car are afraid of the three day OJS. I say that because that used to be me. After seeing that I can do the job (my way) and run even worst numbers while being OJS'd, I stop worrying about it.

    Laying down is the mark of an immature ass with spoiled brat syndrome. In the end they hurt the fellow employees that have to pick up their slack more than the actual people they are retaliating against.

    You draw more bears with honey than with vinegar.

    Many in management are not capable and effective managers of the business so they resort to the easiest and only tool they have.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Because their retarded and mentally manipulated. I guess they think since their mentally weak and can be manipulated and hypnotized that everybody else can be too. GUESS WHAT IDIOTS THEY CANT BE lol. I aint working harder for anybody under any circumstances. Same pace all day every day cause I don't give a BUCK. The jobs a marathon, only thing I care about is myself and finishing the race. They can kiss my buttttttttt lol.

    Harassment works on the weak minded. Sad but true. Its a game, learn how to play. A smile and laugh will piss a sup off way quicker than blowing your top. There is more than one way to skin a cat
