    I have been wondering why a log of every discipline concern outcome heard by the union is not made and available for all to research. I know it would amount to a huge amount of paperwork, but it would also show blatant irregularities and outcomes for similar infractions. It would be a great resource for good stewards and employees as well

    It already exists, but there are only so many secret decoder rings available.

    Isn't that what you wanted? To get a copy of that you have to have a case at panel (so I hear). However they should be made more easily available to all members who want them.

    There are stenographers that record all panel discussions/decisions on the local/area/state/national levels. There's also a national panel case CD that IBT distributes to the business agents nationwide.

    There's really very little reason that this information isn't made more accessible to the membership. While every case is different and I can see a member facing a termination try to cite a case with different circumstances and try to undermine their BA, this is such a small "risk" that it shouldn't preclude this information being more publicly available.

    The company already has this information (along with every Memorandum of Understanding, grievance settlements, etc etc.) and actually does as good (if not better) a job of cataloging/indexing it and making it available to their labor managers.

    At the Ohio Panel, I kid you not, they still use a 1980's analog cassette recorder.
    I always have to hold back my laughter when they stop the hearing to flip the cassette over and go back on the record. SMH

    There is not a stenographer or recorder at the National.

    They probably only bring out the tape recorder when I'm there.

    Make an appointment with your Local BA.

    Or, get elected in to office.

    Don't be lazy.

    Who's willing to pay for it ?

    That's an assumption.... on your part.

    You can't compare cases.

    "Based on the facts presented" means just that.

    I've posted pics of them before. ;)

    Everyone has the info.

    The company, just makes it look pretty.

    Someone.... adept with technology (like yourself)

    Should have just asserted your "intellectual" dominance, by laughing.

    What could go wrong ?

    It takes a lot, to get fired from UPS.

    But, then again....

    We are gifted with some unique people.

    wide load 4 10’s without OT is a concession.

    How much time do you spend at the Ohio arbitrations?

    You must be special I don't get to go that often don't have that many grievances that have to go

    There isn't a sitting arbitrator in Ohio. If it deadlocks it goes to JAC

    Just to expound on that a little further....

    Typically, only "white paper contracts" can have an arbitrator involved.

    UPS, Freight, and Private Cartage, are involved with the Panel Systems.
