Once again another buyout has surfaced. September is the date. Here we go again!!!!!!!!!!!
if that's the case a lot of managers who have been with brown could retire.
Details? Source? More info please...
You need to elaborate on this. Everything I hear is that the company hasn't yet decided anything regarding, benefits, pensions, salary/mip. I would agree that it would be logical to expect something between now and October 1, 2007. Afterall the new MIP year starts on October 1, the flex benefits start to renew in late October / early November. You may be on to something, but you need to elaborate where and what you are hearing .
I am still waiting for my buyout offer as an hourly from UPS. I stand firm at 1 million dollars after taxes..
I would hate to see you all get your hopes up because some unsubstantiated rumor gets started like this one. We are in a pre-contract year. My experience tells me that the company will not consider a management buyout (or early retirement) espeicially with small package operations folks.
As you may remember, the only small package buyout came after the settlement of the '97 contract dispute.
It is very disappointing to see a thread like is get started without any detail. The handle "upsandowns" says it all.
I believe the first "buyout" was in 1995 involving 4K management.
ups lifer, If I had the info you would have received it. This is why I posted. We have heard another buyout, but waiting for contract and they have already targeted 53 and over in the district.....SO IF ANYBODY HAS SOME INFO USE A MESSAGE BOARD, LIKE THIS ONE AND LET US KNOW
Correct on the year. As my district manager at the time said "we ain't downsizing we are rightsizing"
Would be one heck of a kick-off for the next 100 years of UPS.....
Is it just me or does it seem like that only new hires and part timers for the most part are the only ones trying to get into supervision? I hardly ever hear of ft employees wanting to advance with our company. I do not want a shouting match, please.
new compensation plan coming in January based on recent 'total rewards survey' ...and if 'newyorker' is lurking maybe he can shed some light on it---
To some the pinnacle is feeders
For others the pinnacle is district mgr.. or higher...
For some others OMS
I think you get the picture... "to each their own"
Not everyone can be a manager... cause well
if everyone in the world had the same job..(position)
well it wouldn't work. You get the picture
I wasn't shouting I thought you couldn't hear
I think you're somewhat right. Most of our management comes in and follows a career plan of pt to ft management or sometype of specialist to full time management. You don't see many drivers who have been in the ranks any length of time coming forward to take that responsibility.
you are correct, benevolent one, and personally i didn't want to take the initial pay cut to join the mgmt. team
Why would anyone want to go into management these days?
At this point in time we have managers who aren't allowed to manage.
Supervisors who are pkg runners.
Account Executives that spend half their day accounting for what they did the other half (which was to read their emails and take conference calls).
Yeah....that sounds like something I'd be interested in devoting my life to.
UPS is looking for a few good "Yes" men.
Once again, we go off topic. If you guys want to discuss promotions into management, please start another thread.
I have seen full-time drivers go into management. I guess they got sick of delivering, but now this guy goes on the road almost every day. Go figure.
Speaking of rumors I hear that UPS is dropping Liberty Mutual for work comp claims.
Liberty Mutual is trying to settle most long term work comp claims.
Manager here - and I'd love to see another buyout. I didn't even consider it the last time I qualified for one but I'd look very hard at it now. I like UPS but things are bad for management right now. Corporate is over-committing to our customers and I have to beg drivers to help out because doing so is optional for them. This environment puts a terrible squeeze on managers and supervisors. Just ask how many managers and supervisors were required to work today (a 6th day) due to corporate's Harry Potter commitment to the union. I could do it if I had control of my destiny but I don't want to spend 15 more years cleaning up messes that I can't control. Bring on the buyout!
