Couple days ago we had a rough and unusual day at work. A few delays caused serious back up on our belt and for the first time in at least a year, we needed at least 5 additional employees to help us get a foothold on the mess. A part-time preloader who was one of the additional employees helping a loader, chose to walk across a clearly moving belt to get into one of the cars. He did this because the walkway was blocked high by mountain of packages do to all the backup at the end of the belt. My PT supervisor didn't see this, but by a rare case the head honcho of the preload the top manager second only to the center manager saw this, immediately yelled at my PT Supervisor and pointed to the employee walking across the moving belt. The PT Supervisor quickly called out the preloader's name and said no walking on the belt, the preloader quickly yelled back I had no choice. That was the end of the incident. No one further talked to the employee. This employee is non-union and has been at UPS for about 7 months. Is UPS that desperate for employees that an act that used to immediately result in termination goes unpunished now?
