Keep believing that.
The new uniforms look like . Just one step closer to looking like the FedEx and amazon clowns.
Come on no it’s not. Not anymore at least. Chester the molester stach or a nice groomed beard.
Give you one guess which one you see far more of on Wall Street.
Control, control, control. That’s all they yearn for. The more they can control our lives on and off the clock they get hard for. Anybody can be a full blown alcoholic as long as you’re brown’d up sober. Although if you light up a J once a month you’re done for. We’re all adults here last time I checked.
A clean shave
Caution when you read the union side of the forum. Lol
What fighting? This isn't a battle. Those who want facial hair can have it if they are willing to take the appropriate steps. For me, beards are besides the point. It's more an issue of how much control companies should be allowed to exert over the decisions you make about your body, and other aspects of your personal life.
I think forced shaving is an over reach, and I certainly don't want to see any companies push it further than that either. UPS also has a policy about employees' use of social media, outside of work, that I find exceptionally disturbing. A company's right to protect its image ought not supersede an individual's constitutional rights, and it must not do so when we are not on company time.
I will continue to wear my vinyl P.OS. Browns just out of spite. Those jersey material shirts add 10+ lbs to my frame. I can’t have that!
Why does it matter what someone else is doing? You don’t have a beard cool! I do cool!
I agree. And I want my back pay for the time spent shaving while my kids were screaming they are hungry for cereal. 5mins a day is a massive check
RELAX union brothers we are fighting one another! whether we have a beard or not we are union brothers that’s all that matters!
Does the new contract have any language that addresses an additional monetary allowance for shaving supplies and haircuts yet?
If the company cracked down on the no beard policy then there would be very few beards. They’re not that concerned
But ups doesn’t force clean shave. We can all have mustaches if we want. Which most people look terrible with.
How do you figure? Everyone has a dr note
Dude I shake my head now w these people w FMLa leave
They also give us an allowance for soap and shampoo, so we can shower everyday....
Well . I miss all the good stuff.
I’m only going by my center maybe. We have around 115 drivers and I’d guess 40 or so isn’t clean shaven. Some of them got a doctor note but many don’t anymore. Management fought it for a while but rarely says anything anymore.
