I've heard this rumor for a few months now. Does anyone have any reliable information on it? Is this just a rumor?

Yes. Amazon is excited to buy a company that has an expensive, unionized workforce. They are looking forward to UPS Teamsters organizing all the current non-union warehouse employees.

You sound like my parents on the phone after they saw an Amazon Prime Air (drone) delivery commercial.

Bezos would do it just to break the union.

Yes. Amazon is going to buy UPS effective August 1st after the contract expires and fire every service provider.

Your severance will be in the form of your package car, which you will be invited to use as a contracted PVD for Amazons new delivery service.

Good luck everyone!
