    Hello my name is Shepherd, I'm not going to use my real name cause what I'm about to say may risk of me being terminated.
    Ive been with UPS for a decade now as a Administrator.
    As the years pass I notice UPS ascended to be a great company.
    I have friends that works for UPS, that are in the union as loader and driver.
    My question is why isn't their a Union for the Administrators?
    Our Rights are being taken away by management, we cant let them dictate us anymore.
    Administrators/nonunion workers are going to lose their job or going to be bump by the beginning of June, due to cut backs and the closing of centers.
    I believe that UPS is only looking out for its well being company and is sacrificing its loyal workers.
    Administrators/nonunion workers the time to strike is now if we don't fight back and unionize, were going to be unemployed.

    Good news for you "Shepherd". I guess it just means 1800 managers will be cut, according to "Tie" (there are no admistrative jobs there) :

    Discuss: U.P.S. Plans to Cut 1,800 Jobs
    U.P.S. Plans to Cut 1,800 Jobs - New York Times
    United Parcel Service said on Friday that it would cut 1,800 management and administrative jobs as it repositioned itself for a gradual recovery.

    It was a comment on the use of the word Administrator as opposed to the classic term of administrative assisstant.

    The classic definition of administrator would be someone in a management position.

    I do agree with the persons general comments though. There was a time when we would reduce the workforce by attrition rather then by severance.

    yes ups has already announced to the affected depts that they will be cutting non union admin jobs.. seems this time around they wont even let them choose positions and keep their current salary now they will have to interview and if they get the job there pay will go to starting pay for that grade level so it doesn't matter if you have been loyal employee for 20 or more years you could wind up at a lower grade and a major paycut.. Thanks for the loyalty back UPS! I mean this is my what 3rd or 4th time in the last 3 years that i have been through job selection process... seems to be they will be come a union workers and mgmt co and thats all looks like they are going to squeeze out all non union employees.

    That is what has been floating around Corporate. A Marketing person at a Division Manager level was offered a job in the Georgia district as a Sales supervisor at the rate of a new supervisor ... about a 60% cut in pay. She turned it down and took the separation package after over 25 plus years at UPS and late 40's in age.

    The admins were "all" supposedly notified of the lastest downsizing this week. I put "all" in quotes because not "all" admins were notified although the documented memo stated that. We were told that all impacted employees will be receiving a packet at home within the next two weeks. There are just too many conflicting versions floating around. Very poor job in keeping the communication consistent. It is just a waiting game to see how this will all unfold. My opinion is that no jobs are secure regardless of how many years you have with the company.

    Maybe you should have thought about that before you quit the Teamsters Einstein.

    He may have always worked in the office payroll, accounting,IT,etc, and never had the opportunity to be in the union. It just goes to prove what the people upstairs think of all the worker bees,union and non union.To them we are canon fodder.

    I hate to see anyone lose their job, but how much management do we have and how much do we need?
    Does anyone know the breakdown of union (good) and non-union (EVIL) workers ups employs?
    There's an awful lot of chiefs at ups...

    One time I had a stupervisor complain about my "exorbinate salary". I replied "At least I provide a service! You get paid more than I do to watch me work!".

    We have 2 chiefs to many for 30 drivers( 3 if you count the center manager and 4 if you count the dispacth supe).

    Right or wrong the statement only the strong survive is more evident now than ever before, technology is weeding out the weak per se, as technology advances there will be less union jobs along with less management. Just my opinion.

    "per se", not "per say".

    It's latin. Type it in your favorite dictionary website.

    Latin. When used to define a language the word is capitalized.

    I am in no way an English Major but i think i got it right. I looked it up.

    Do you mean "per se"?

    This is Latin and means "in itself" or "with reference to itself"; in other words you're talking specifically about the subject in question and not about things related to the subject.
