After filing numerous grievances for excessive overtime I finally got my 3 day ride. The 3 days were uneventful with the supervisor saying little critically each day. I’m sure like most management he is not perfect in his knowledge of the methods. My usual delivery area was altered one day when close stops in a borough were added to my route. My normal area is very rural with many miles between stops so I know that this is grounds to have my Union throw out the ride. I have not had these stops since my ride. Among all the other daily hurdles we are presented with my center also instructs us to deliver misroute packages that are within a reasonable distance. Some of these take as much as forty minutes to deliver. Of course I was instructed to sheet these as missed during the three days. Afterward I was dismayed to see the childish division manager puffing his chest and strutting around like he just one some major victory. Disregarding the first day, the production numbers were identical to what they were getting before on my route. Is the management of this company really this stupid? I can only believe they are lying to try to intimidate others into not going through this process. They now have to monitor my stops daily and I have reclaimed my life outside of UPS. I urge all who do not want to be victimized by excessive hours to use your contract and file.
