Not if you're a seasoned veteran.
I can't disagree with your line of thinking, but I don't know of any UPS facility's
that own and maintain their own machines. Because it happens so infrequently
they just take them to a hospital or urgent care type facility.
True alcoholics build up a tolerance.
Just like this guy:
UPS driver charged with DUI after blowing .316 while making deliveries
.316 is almost 4x the legal limit, and this guy was working. The average person would
(probably) be to the point of alcohol poisoning.
Had a pkg driver in one of our centers who would go out partying and come straight in to the bldg. about 3 am. He would go up to the dressing room and sleep it off on the bench, how he never fell off the bench beats me. When the other drivers started coming in, they would wake him up. He never was busted for alcohol. I was the center clerk so seen it happen several times.
Preloaders did the same thing
Only they didn’t sleep it off
Walked in and started chucking boxes
who uses mouthwash for dry mouth
A good attorney knows how to dig into the key elements of a case to discredit or suppress info.
He should talk to one. It's worth the $250 appointment.
I'll save him some money.
The case has to be adjudicated through the grievance procedure first.
Then.... and only then.... should he contact an attorney.
Depends on if you trust your local representation.
I'd have all my bases covered personally.
For those who trust their representation I would think differently.
So what happened @riley45 ??
How is your situation going ???
I slept in the parking lot of Minneapolis Hub so many times it wasn't funny the 1st 10 years of my career.
There was a bar down the road....go there after work for drinks and dinner. Shut the bar down and then drive back to UPS to sleep in the parking lot.
We partied hard back then.
Did u have them test the machine before ur test to make sure it was registered at triple 0.
It doesn't depend on his representation. The courts have ruled that anyone with a contract has to exhaust the grievance procedure before they go to court. If he chooses to terminate any part of the grievance procedure, he will lose in court because he didn't follow through with it first. Courts will throw it out.
The readout on the test result strip usually has the time the machine was zeroed on it. The second test is usually done at about 1/2 hour to verify the original result.
...and this, boys and girls, is why UPS is, and always will be, a union shop.
