    Yes he is he wants to serve his country. He looks like he just got out the military. He will definitely make it through basic training. The proudest I ever been a American was at San Diego to watch my brother in law graduate at camp pendleton. Makes me feel guilty I never served. I know it's got to be a form he has to fill out in order to keep his job senority and raises and be eligible to be vested in 5 years to pt pension

    My son worked PT for several years since he was in high school. He went into the navy, served 4 years. Came back and went back to ups. His seniority carried right through his military service, and he even got the back raises. If I remember correctly, he had to fight to get it all lined out. He had to get the union involved, but they finally fixed it. You have to leave on good terms. as well.
  5. No. He's hung though!

    He doesn't need to quit. Article 15 of the NMUPSA.


    The new National Master Agreement....

    Expands the rights of Military members and their families.

    Active duty or reserves? They have to allow you time off for the Reserves or National guard that is the law. The company will not put up any road blocks to his keeping his job at UPS!

    Remember to get a withdrawal card from the union.

    If he doesn't get a withdrawal card from the union he will have to pay initiation fees all over again when he comes back.

    Tell him this Veteran thanks him for his service and to get a freaking withdrawal card.

    You can join ups , then go Active duty for up to five years and Ups has to keep your job available to you when you come back . Also you get to keep you seniority and you still accumulate your pay raises in the time you We’re out.
