Hey just wondering if they test the drivers for drugs?
if there is suspicion
no just feeder and class b drivers go to page 89 of the contract
Oh ok, so it's not a routine thing like it is at USPS then.
But they need good reason, can't do it just because
they do randoms all the time
Yes but it does not detect serial killers so you're ok.
they do?? I know they do for feeders but in over 20 years I've never heard of this for pkg car.
they only random test cdl and class a they can not test pkg car drivers. go to page 89 and 90 of the contract
If, management suspects a driver to be under the influence of a controlled substance, you better believe they'll send the person for a drug test.
I've seen this happen to a driver here in So. Cal. A customer on His route, called in to report His out of the ordinary behavior. He was terminated of course.
If any driver has a problem, please get some help.
I would like to know what specific behavior the driver was fired for.
Was acting real agitated. Seemed to be in a hurry. Mumbled something about having to be 5 places in the next 2 minutes.
Not sure what the behavior was, but we can assume it was very odd, for a customer to be that concerned.
The point is, He's no longer employed due to drug abuse.
The problem with this observation is its normal behavior for a UPS driver,, lol. There is no way a human can be given our work load and act normal. Add 4 OCA's to an already tight pick-up schedule and its enough to make someone crazy.
I have to point out that this is the area UPS rubs customers the wrong way. Its a solid reason why they choose the competition over UPS. They employ too many drivers that can't handle the workload and pass their frustration on to the customers.
The customers don't care and they don't want a delivery person ranting and raving about how difficult his job is. The center should either lighten him up or not make him seniority because its ruining our reputation.
... whattaya need?...
That is what is called, "A Sense of Urgency"
In this past year, 1 22.3 and 2 package car drivers were fired for multiple failed testings. Feeders are always getting tested.
