How prepared is UPS to adequately handle yet another unpredictable Peak, especially since it is taking over more of the Amazon volume since FedEx backed out?

How UPS handles the first all-Amazon Peak this year -- and its impact on our drivers, handlers and helpers -- is a legit issue.

Am I missing some part of the country where Amazon has caused layoffs or any major damage to UPS?

Amazon moved in here recently. Stuff is slightly bulkier. But it's not really affected anyone here much. Except the part timers who jumped ship to work for an extra buck an hour.

UPS will do what they did last year. They will cut Amazon off at a certain point and make them deal with it theirselves.

“They” are coming for us.

I’m pretty sure FedEx cut them off here last peak. About two weeks before Jesus birthday. I don’t recall us cutting them off. At least not here.

I didn't know there was another driver other than me in all of Wyoming.

I honestly cannot recall any peak ever that my building has been "adequately prepared" for....but the $6 raise that all our new hires got last year was pretty hilarious.

Amazon up the highway was hiring at $15. So we bumped our starting to $16. In california there is a law where if you do not revert an hourly rate within a month IT IS PERMANENT.

Somehow, UPS with all their money and expensive attorneys did not know about this law. Every single new hire and newbie got bumped to $16 permanently.

Then massive layoffs occurred

Not sure if this happed in any other building, but thanks a lot Amazon!!!

First to worst!
Nope only management is :censored2:ed. I can only deliver so much in a day. The rest comes back and ruins my CMs night.
We will be rolling trailers through January playing a lot of catch up is my guess. And the 9.5 list doesn't start back up until January 15th!
