    What a joke. The 70hr rule was made for feeder drivers, not package drivers who are in an out of their truck 200 times a day lifting heavy packages

    It's going to take somebody getting killed before ups realizes how serious the negative effects of this 70hr work week can get.

    Just told the same thing out west.....told that our companies future is on the line. You hear that Abney.....you have your head in your :censored2: and now your employees and their families are the ones paying for it. Perhaps you need to be reminded that we are employed by UPS not owned by UPS.

    The general public should know about the potential danger the Company’s decision to work exhausted drivers 70 hours a week puts them in.

    The real question that needs to be asked, if 70 hours is ok now, why isn’t it year round?
