    Why didn't BUG ask you what the contract violation is?

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    All I can tell you guys is this - anytime they have tried a 3 day ride in our building, the driver files harassment after the 2nd day and that puts an abrupt halt to the lock in crap and nothing more is said about it ever. This in a RTW state in the deep south. Interpret it any way you want but it works here ( if you're not scared to file). And our BA is a freakin pitbull.

    People in our center are either scared to file or just don't care about their rights. it doesn't help that our BA is the little yorkie the pitbull just walked over.

    I just don't understand it. If I'm expected to follow every little rule and method, I expect them to follow a contract they agreed to. Either do it or pay me. Their choice.

    How about if our BA is a teacup Chihuahua?

    EXACTLY! They agreed to the contract, yet violate it every chance they get then get mad when grievances start flying.

    Wrong :))

    I had about 10 ride alongs my first year. Also my center manager screaming at me to quit my job in the morning when I’d tell them I was going to have late air again.

    I want a 30 day ride where they actually train me how to use ODO properly. Or observe, with a stop watch, me digging packages out of the middle of a full truck. Bring it on.

    Black workers in Ohio accuse UPS of allowing hate at work

    Are the workers in this story teamsters? If so, what action is the Union taking against the offenders? Would it help if I told you how they violated the constitution?

    Or better yet observe your sup with a stopwatch digging out his/her first 25 stops on your route....I have been here over 25 years and have NEVER seen anything come out of a 3 day ride....people need to stop stressing....

    Spcmiddleton I love my job. Don't you?

    I know it's your third stop but do you think you could climb over everything to find that envelop in the middle of your 6000 shelf? Thanks for your efforts. We knew ODO was a winning idea.

    Corporate has no clue Orion is a joke and frontline management is too scared to tell them.

    Your "frontline management" is corporate "entry level management.

    It doesn’t matter how it’s interpretted. If you file article 37 then management has to cease and desist until there is a local level hearing.

    Where I am they hate doing the yearly ride. A lot more fun staying in the air conditioning telling stupid jokes and eating corn chips.
