    I Driver released a package in an apartment complex that you have to be buzzed in to enter. Now the apartment that I released the box too is saying they did not receive the box. I'm pretty sure we just took some diad training that stated we could drive a release a package in an apartment that was secure. But now one of the supervisors is saying that if the package is not recovered that I would have to pay for it. Am I correct in that if its an apartment building that is secured by lock we can driver release?

    Your fine....who buzzed you in?Usually you push the consignees there more to the story?

    Normally you push the consignee's buzzer but the reality is you do whatever you can to gain entry .

    You're covered. Have a steward with you if they even bring up the fact you might have to pay for it. You followed your training correctly with the little information you've given us thus far.

    If the pkg is under 100 dollars in value you are not responsible plus they have to prove gross negligence on your part. file a grievence asap if they charge you

    DR MC and DR FD. You are covered by our recent DR training which allows DR in secured locations.

    You're fine, as others have said. It's a secure building, they got the package and are just lying.

    Doesn't mean they got it. Maybe another tenant stole it. Either way your fine. Worse case scenario they will no longer allow you to DR in that building.

    I always worry about kids, both younger and older, finding a box in the hallway.

    Rainman Its all good.

    Sounds like a supervisor getting his kicks intimidating someone. Like the other posters said, you're covered.

    Kmart sux. So does Walmart. And Orion.

    When your sup talks to you again about the claim tell him you followed the directives in the DIAD training. When he asks you which training tell him to get off his lazy arse and go look it up himself. Then tell him not to talk to you about it again unless a steward is present!

    We have some buildings that you CAN DR, just seems like it is probably not a good idea. Either way, it was a secure building and you followed the DR guidelines. If anything more comes of it, talk to your steward about a grievance.
