    Method for pushing out drivers side mirror? How can it be done safely?

    Almost had my arm ripped off by a Ford friend-350 yesterday and it has me rethinking the safety of pulling/pushing my drivers side mirror. The truck had ladders hanging off the sides and it was too close for comfort. Whats the official method to do it safely? My arm is more valuable than a $50 mirror!

    Why do Yard Drivers give you that piercing gaze?

    I've gotta get this off of my chest lol. Every driver just stands there like they're about to whoop my ass when it's about 90% done. There's absolutely nothing I can do in my power to speed up the flow or alter the rules of space, and time. I kind of find it hilarious that every driver seems to...

    Asking for a friend...

    Long story short. Driver A and Driver B are both Tues-Saturday drivers. However Driver B has a side deal worked out with management that he comes in every Monday to help and takes another day off of the week, sometimes being Saturday due to him running out of hours. Driver A has more seniority...

    New progression.

    Anyone hear anything from the 4 year progression changing in the new contract ? I heard it’s going down to a 3 yr or up to 5-6 I’m 1 year into driving. So if it went down to a 3 year would i fall into that or stay at the 4 year

    Energy Drinks or nah?

    Okay this is my fourth week at the united parcel service. I'm pretty exhausted after an hour or two and I was wondering if you guys recommend having a monster/redbull/5 hour energy etc? I usually don't eat before my preload shift so I can see that being a problem. I'm a pretty big guy at 250lbs...

    Your ideal dispatch...

    UPS told the Union during contact negotiations that excessive overtime was not a problem. UPS claimed their internal polling indicated less than 1/5 of drivers think their dispatch is too high. Do you agree?
