    Does your hub have a picnic for employees families to attend? Our hub in the midwest has had two total in over 25 years. One was the hundredth anniversary and the other was a picnic with those JTM burgers. The only thing that was tasty were the cupcakes. Some of the "shirts" showed up but only talked to the supervisors. Nice, huh?
    I think the company should have something fairly decent once a year - perhaps on the anniversary weekend for the employees - without us they wouldn't be anything. After all with all of the extra profit they are gaining and the their recent earnings - they could certainly HELP morale a lot. Of course, we will also remember the harassment, short pays, supes working but wouldn't it be nice if they treated us as humans instead of just a number on their shift sheet?
    So the question is: does you hub have anything and is it annually?

    The last place I want to be is a Picnic with Management.
    They are the enemy.

    Those days are long gone friend. Even if they do something now, no one goes. The animosity is at an all time high.

    They would only use it to see how many people depend on your paycheck. Never tell management about your private life, and definitely don't show them.

    It's too bad. Every company in America has a Christmas party or something for their employees and family. Not UPS tho...

    Hell we’re lucky if we get a biscuit or doughnuts in the morning anymore unless someone retires.

    If I make it that far, I’m crapping my own pants minutes before the breakfast, then standing right in front of the tables grabbing food with my bare hands.

    I heard stories about such things way before I was hired in the early nineties. The shareholders would have a fit.

    wait a minute.....I'm a shareholder.

    If UPS ever held a family picnic now I would be paranoid and suspicious.

    In the northeast we had "UPSers day". The company rented Hershey park for a whole day just for UPS workers. It wansnt free but we got like 50% off the tickets to get in, and the all you can eat buffet was $19 each.
