    What do you all think about this? In my building personally, I have never experienced any sort of racism or discrimination based on race. I work in SoCal so almost all the workers are Mexican but overall it’s a healthy mix and we all get along great I’m glad to say. I’m ashamed that the company allowed these workers to get bullied in this manner. I hope they win and teach management to take reports of harassment more seriously.

    UPS is a hostile work environment for everybody. Sounds like a bunch of crybabies to me looking for some easy money.

    Is sounds like a few brain dead a-whole's made racist comments, the clown hanging a noose was fired, the driver got his job back.

    Why didn't these employees go to the union?

    UPS reminds me of boot camp from full metal jacket. We are all equally worthless to them, they don’t discriminate.

    One thing I don’t agree with is managers not being black.

    All my center managers have been black or women. Majority of supervisors in my building are minority, with a majority of the minorities being black.

    Either way, I’m glad the peckerwoods are getting fired and management hung out to dry. Hanging nooses is some neo-confederate bull:censored2: and I wouldn’t feel safe in that kind of environment either if I was black.

    I hope they get paid enough to show up to work like this.

    Actually, California would be the best place on Earth if 40 million people would find another place to live (except the hot ones).

    I carry spare rescue lines in all my vehicles, some just happen to have some fancy knots. The kid next door prepares them for me. His great grand ma was a Blackfoot.

    How am I being a cry baby? If anything, UPS weeds out the snowflakes. We get a lot of volume down here so there aren’t any pusillanimous were I work. Where do you work btw? Probably out in the boonies where you get 20 trailers a night if you’re lucky.

    Still, they are union members. They could shut that crap down faster than going through Management.

    Ups wont do 2 things. Allow bad press and treat black workers like White and Mexican workers. I'm sure there is Asian workers in San Fran but probably no where else eh.
