    UPS is sending me to drone pilot school tomorrow. Do I still need to know my 5s and 10s?

    Normal volume here. Can't wait for peak when I can make my helper do everything while I sit back and count the money.

    Thank goodness the strongest labor union in the world represents UPS employees. It really aids with....cutting down on excessive overtime. Lol.

    Its called a 9.5 grievance. File enough of em and youll find yourself home at 7 every night. They get real tired of giving out free money. Look into it someday.

    You are clearly clueless and afraid of your own shadow. Theres a very easy way to control OT. But 90% of drivers are terrified. Cant help people that dont want to be helped

    Worked 5 days and didn’t go over 9.5 once. Must’ve been a mistake. A glitch in the Matrix.

    I will be filing my 12th grievance since the first week in May for excessive overtime. Around here they are not even holding hearings anymore, just paying out the 9.5 grievances once a month.
