    Really? The company makes more money every year and we barely get a raise to cover inflation. Why shouldn't we strike?

    A strike today wouldn't be supported by the public as it was 20 yrs ago , your getting paid health care, a pension , and 34 an hour to drive a truck !

    You know with all of the hate for large corporations and big money you'd think it would be the opposite.

    I know. I'm saying the public hates the big companies right now but not as much as not getting their stuff. Lol

    People will take one look at our compensation package and tell us to get our butts back to work.

    Ups has pushed us beyond the point of giving a :censored2:. If anything little thing is even mentioned of being taken away(and I know it will) you got my no vote.

    No money for beer if we strike? I spend all my money, so there is no reserve.

    With Hoffa we will never strike. Plus he gave away so much. We really have nothing to get. We will get pittance of a raise. Most pt (if they bother to vote) will take the money. We will be without a contract for atleast 6 months. Cove above is correct

    Strike benefits went up to $150 week, that's more than most pt take home. It would be like getting a raise for them, without the hassle of actually working. Won't have a dog in this fight I'm outta here in January, but something needs to be done to make it worth the backbreaking work the partimers do to keep the good ones. If they ever wake up and realize they have the numbers to make this happen, all they have to do is show up at the demands meetings and vote.

    First off. Shut up with that and 90% of my co workers are overpaid. No educated fools pulling in 80,000+ with benifits...

    Exactly. Anything short of status quo should be a no.


    In the decade I have been here the dividend has increased 50 cents. That's almost 2 billion dollars more per year the company is paying shareholders than they were 10 years ago.

    $.50/share increase in just 10 years?

    Me thinks you need to do some research before posting inaccurate data.
