This seems like a great site with a lot of good discussions. I've been reading through some of the threads and see a lot of opinions and viewpoints. I work in IS and recently (last year) worked peak as a drivers helper. It was a small hub and I was assigned to some great drivers. It gave me a much better understanding of what our drivers and loaders do and how hard they work. Not that I didn't respect them before, but it gave me a whole new respect for what they do. The only thing I didn't understand is during the morning PCMs, everybody would stand together and listen before getting on the road. However, there were days when the union reps would visit and stay for the PCMs and it was blatantly obvious that none of the drivers would stand near me (I was the only full time helper at this hub). Is there some written/unwritten rule against socializing with non-union UPSers when reps are present?
