    So today at PCM our Center Manager said he had a surprise for us. About 30 seconds later about 15 guys dressed in browns walked into where we were standing at PCM and our center manager said these new guys are the new 22.4 drivers and they will be treated with the utmost respect and if anything other than...

    Any drivers on here work in Grass Valley or Sacramento County?

    im in a position to buy some land in Nevada County. I’m in the motion of transferring up north from San Francisco to the Grass Valley hub. Just wondering if any drivers from the area are on BC and have any insight on needing drivers up there. Thanks in advance for any info

    Sorter looking to get more hours via driving?

    So heard the deal. I’m a sorter I’ve been with the company since last October got my seniority in January. I’ve noticed that a lot of the people I work with drive some days and then work as a sorter some days. What is up with that? And how to I go about doing that? I’m still pretty new to this...

    Full time lay off options

    I’m a full time package driver but the lowest in seniority and work has slowed down so there are no routes for me.. I’ve been working both preload and sort to get my 8.. we have 2 part time air routes every day and I’m being told I can’t take either one because it’s strictly for air drivers...

    Hope IE has to run routes when we strike

    It would be great if IE had to run routes when the strike comes to fully appreciate their planning.Ill wave when you come in about 10 pm and watch your faces when you arrive the next morning to do it again.

    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?

    Can a PT AM Loader sign a TDC sheet?

    I was a driver helper with one of the highest seniority drivers. He put in a good word for me and I accepted an offer for pre load. He knows I want to drive, and said he's still putting in a good word for me. He also told me no one is signing the sheets for driving jobs. I don't have my 30 days...
