I know the majority of the people who post/read these messages are union folks, but has anyone heard any rumors of office downsizings for admins? I don't mean the operations admins - I mean the human resources, accounting, business development, etc. admins. I only ask for two reasons: first, UPS has a history of outsourcing their staff functions to one or two places. Not that this is necessarily bad, but since your local payroll group was disolved, how many messed up paychecks have you gotten? UPS says it saves them money to run one payroll group for the country instead of one for each district, but I know how much we pay out each year in grievances for screwed up checks not fixed timely. Second, I saw something the other day that makes me think another cut is happening. My manager printed out something and forgot about it, and it fell into the wrong hands. It was a list of all of the admins in the district, what they did, how much time they spent on each task, and then someone higher up (region or DM) showed where tasks and positions could be cut. Not that it is written in stone, but UPS wouldn't ask management to study their admin positions unless something was brewing about another cut. Has anyone heard anything???? I've been with the company for 23 years and would hate to hit the streets for a new job at this point.
