Much like the country, package ops have been horribly mismanaged for years and 22.4's + retirements are just the perfect storm to bring it all down
The contract was not the main issue. Most of the part timers are only here for Play Money
Nah. @Thebrownblob oops I did it again Whatcha gonna do about it though?take my name out of your mouth
sounds like he’s just a troll.
And when did I ever say that? What excuse have I made for the contract? You won’t find one because you’re a clown and an ass hat.
Building is extremely short staffed because no one wants this job right now. We have had a “ready team” of supervisors in my building running routes for weeks. People from all over the country getting flown out with per diem and lodging.
Driver in my center just got a check close to $10k for sups working grievances. Stewards standing by the daily recap board yelling out “Who wants it?”
UPS does what they want. Think about how much money they are making with this band-aid if they are happy to pay out thousands in grievances and fly supervisors in. Not to mention most days they send us to help the help when we finish. Can’t make this stuff up.
Right here .And when did I ever say that?
The contract was not the main issue
There was a shift in adulthood and responsibility that came from the top. In the early to mid 2000s that we are now beginning to feel.
You’re absolutely a troll I’ve never talk to you before, you make assumptions about me and what I do or don’t do to create a stir that’s the definition of troll.
He’s a steward you hack.Right here .
And here is where you blame Millennials/Gen Z/Whatever.
Do they teach you reading at intergrad? You know these posts are still up and accessible to everyone right?
So because you haven't talked to me before I'm a troll? I've been on this forum a while off and on and I've never talked to you. Given how disingenuous you are, I'm inclined to believe you're the troll.
Anyways, I'm down to squash this and apologize if I've misinterpreted you in any way. Im not really interested in having an ugly back and forth with another union member. It would only benefit management
lets get some rest. I’m thinking about that nice double on Mondays (for me) during peak & best part is it still counts even if u happen to miss a day.Muy bien, Muy bien

File any 6 day discipline they’ll get tired of writing u up. Our current center manager skips progressive discipline and goes straight for write ups. They get thrown out in two days stay calm cool collected
Don’t be discouraged. It’s hard to be taken serious. Some people think you have to earn their respect rather than give It.Reading this thread, is it any wonder that the union has issues mobilizing part timers? The open disdain y'all have for us is palpable.
The contract is not the main issue, most new hires don’t even know about it. I’m pretty sure I can say that because I have a kid who works there and does it just for play money. He’s going to school and was told in about eight months when he’s 21 he can go driving. He’s not sure that’s what he wants to do. Nothing wrong with that and I didn’t say it negatively. Seems to be a general consensus with the recently high school graduated currently in college age kids. Was quite different when they asked me if I wanted to go full-time I was ready and willing.
I started as a part timer I walked a picket line as a part timer. Full timers voted for a contract that made me full-time much quicker. I’ve stated many times I will do the same for the part-timers and the current contract maybe you have me confused with other members.
Perhaps don’t misconstrue one of my comments to mean something it does not.
never take things personal it’s a place where everyone’s head boils up in high stress
Don’t forget I’m not just talking about my kid, Who by the way is well aware what the job pays and what it can provide. I have made sure in my building there is a driver intent list put up, we have well over 1200 pt employees. We have trouble getting 50 people who want to drive. Or go full-time at all. There has been a shift in attitudes. I’m not making a judgment whether it’s good or bad I’m just telling you it’s what it is.Just because your kid works here for play money doesn't mean your generalized statements about part timers are accurate. I have a full time job outside of UPS and I've been a steward on my sort for a long time now. I've talked to (literally) hundreds of part timers who work here for all kind of reasons ranging from play money, to insurance, to driving ambitions. I do my best to get them voting and engaged in the process. Fortunately, most of the drivers in my hub stand in solidarity with their union brothers and refrain from openly disparaging them.
