I am hearing so many different stories, I can't make heads or tails of it all. I work out of UPS Freight South Holland. I see so much wrong at this hub, it makes me wonder if they are even trying to "build" the brand. Or, are they waiting until the 5 years are up for tax reasons, then they will shutdown UPS Freight. I come from a UPS "family" more or less and this is not how Brown runs things. I wonder if some of this is because so many of the former Overnite management are upset of 1. Being bought by UPS 2. Having to deal with the Teamsters since Overnite fought with them for decades? We are losing runs left & right. We had a layoff on the road board of 4-5 drivers. Rumor has it that next up is all the sleeper teams are going to be eliminated after this national grievence panel in January. The company wants to combine the road extra board and the road fill-in board into one position of 18 drivers but they DONOT want to guarantee the 40 hour pay for the extra board. If they consolidate those positions it will drop the 90% down to around 75%. Up until today, we had 95 drivers. Now we are at 90. If we lose those team runs, that will knock another 10-12 people out of a job! And, all the time this is going on, outside contractors are running freight in/out of SOH or around us. It seems the Teamsters are powerless in stopping this from happening. It is really sad, and causes anxiety for all concerned.
