    If I hadnt gotten off at a decent time tonight, I would have had to worry about my DOT hours tomorrow. Over 9 1/2 greivances are ignored here and result in massive retaliation against the filing driver.
    When will UPS realize that a tired workforce is not a safe workforce? Accidents are spiking in my division and management doesnt have a clue why!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Management knows full well why accidents are on the rise; however, their hands are tied as they are merely puppets. Keep filing.

    Atlantic divison has had 4 tier threes in the last 4 days, nothing to do with us driving 55 hours a week or anything like that, just driver error.

    Now my Center has had the most accidents in our District for over a year now, ya'll can't beat that! Cut more routes and overload works well.

    The accidents would not have occured if the drivers had been given more acronyms and commentaries to recite..

    As much as it pains me on these occasions. I have to agree with UpState.Keep filing and filing and filing.When they harrass, file again.Beat them at their own game, create your own paper trail.Nothing will ever be resolved with one grievance.Not satisfied with grievance process?File labor charges, but only after you have felt that you have exausted the grievance process.They push as far as you let them.

    Everybody should sign up for under 9.5. That will force them to add routes.

    This year's peak seems to be coming fast. Our hub is pushing more and more each week. All hail the almighty peak!

    No it wont, in my building they just pay us the grievence money, they dont even fight it anymore just give us the money and plan the over 10's over 11's.
    They dont care they dont want more drivers period. If it means more drivers getting hurt who cares, more accidents who cares, just dont hire anyone to do the routes.
