Sounds like the issue is warmth and comfort.....
There may be another side to this debate under the homeland security act. I'm trying to find the language but I believe homeland security has laws out now requiring the uniforms be clearly displayed and requiring we control the uniforms. Anyone notice you can't buy the brown sweaters through cintas anymore?I believe the homeland security laws had something to do with it. Again searching to see what the law says.
If other clothing was worn over UPS issued clothing I would see their point,but when the hoodie is worn under the jacket with only the proper brown colored hood showing then only UPS people would know it`s not UPS issue.
As far as Ties subject,you would be amazed at the number of people walking out wearing UPS uniforms parts that have no business wearing them. Are they bringing them back or is a new piece worn out everyday?
