    Just like during the strike when they were driving trucks around to make it look like “business as usual”.... then when mgt did have packages to deliver they were being kicked off of customers property left and right because customers wanted THEIR driver back.... but on the brightside each sup/Mgr received a participation plaque stating that they helped keep the company going during the 2 week Teamsters strike...lol. Many mgt proudly displayed that plaque next to their years of service plaques and the picture of the four founding fathers of ups....

    Seriously, while we are making $36+/hr straight time, saving a dollar in fuel a day (maybe) is somehow now the priority???

    ORION has yet to show it's true mission....wait for it.

    From what I could understand from his drunken babbling cries for help , it sounded as if his knee caps were broken.

    I haven't seen a new hire be able to ignore Orion when it's the only option there is in the DIAD to view the stops. For many of us, RDO no longer being an option is the reality. If the company's true motive with Orion is to catalog data or anything else rather than what we were told it was being chained to us to begin with, and new drivers can't figure it out to the extent that they either quit or wash out in a matter of weeks and often even mere days, then it's actually failing to assist inexperienced drivers - So much so to the point here that many of the experienced drivers reach the 60hr threshold having to continually clean up the mess.

    Sure the company will try to execute the plan. I previously stated as much regarding the language and never argued to the contrary. They've always exploited the language in the contract regardless of what article it pertained to. No reason to figure that would ever change. Trying it isn't the same as executing it and the events you describe unfolding would take a level of success that management can't seem to make happen even one building at a time much less simultaneously on a nationwide scale. Maybe there's an ample pool of motivated unemployed talent where you are that's available to tap into with a sufficient training staff, enough trucks, enough space to put them, and enough people to load them so that you experience the scenario exactly as you describe sometime in the near future.

    But I don't see that future showing up tomorrow, the next day, or anytime soon here where I am. So when I get that call? At best, it's not a matter of "When" here and I'm skeptical that "If" is on the horizon anytime soon unless an economic collapse of epic proportion occurs (always a possibility). For discussion's sake, on the assumption I were to receive such a call, my decision would be based on exactly what options were available and that is something I've already inquired about with the stewards regarding what I could accept and what I could refuse, as I would honestly like to know. Their response was "Quit kidding yourself. Nobody has been able to get Mondays off for over two years and that isn't changing."

    I can't remember seeing any posts from anyone with that handle, but I guess I'll take your word for it. Seems like that's the kind of employee the company never seems to have a shortage of...

    Did you ad the "jr." or is that actually a real classification?
