working for free

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by Work right slow and safe, Mar 6, 2009.

  1. I have seen 2 drivers the last few nights getting in at 9:30 9:45 so i stopped and asked them what time do they start both of them stated they are working for free right now. i told them I HAVE SEEN them every night getting in at this time they then said they do this everynight they will work 1 to 2 hrs with out pay everyday just to make the mgrs keep off there backs so when they need something they can get it. i gave them the look of :knockedout: i then asked them do you know how many of your drivers from your center have been layoff they said yes. i said do you know that you are keeping you coworkes on layoff by working for free they had the nerve to say well im still working :angry:

    Unfortunately for them, they would be the ones who's jobs would be in jeopardy. Not the managers whose backs they are scratching!!

    If they are off the clock for 1-2 hours and have punched out via the DIAD then how are they recording stops? If they are scanning and stop completing the stops they have left and then punching out and continuing on the road is also falsifying records and they could lose their jobs for dishonesty. God forbid one of them has an accident! There are just too many things wrong on so many levels with doing what they are doing.

    I don't believe a word of your story and I have no idea what response you're looking for from this forum. Sorry if I'm mistaken, but your story doesn't make any sense.

    First, UPS wouldn't allow it because working for free has been against the law since the Lincoln administration. Second, I have yet to meet a driver that would work his 11th, 12th, and 13th hour at UPS for nothing. It just doesn't happen and will never happen. Think about, according to you these drivers are giving $100-$150 a day to keep their manager off their back? Please!

    What is the real story?

    While I have a hard time believing 3 hours a day, I have seen it here.

    Driver punches off after his last delivery, but still has an hour to drive back to the center. Had to represent one that was doing just that. 5 hours or so a week. All caused by an audit at the building. Oddly enough, a safety audit.

    Sup of course had no knowledge of it ever happening, so the driver took all the blame for the dishonesty.

    Got the dishonesty removed from his record, 10 day suspension for failure to follow instructions.

    It is stupid, but there are those drivers at ups that just dont think rules apply to them.

  20. they are still punched in on the diad but they will not get paid after 12hrs and they will let them roll the clock back to make them under :angry:
