Don’t worry he’s friendly
The Charleston County Coroner’s Office has identified a Summerville man killed in a West Ashley crash.
Sad to hear. Right around the corner from me.
Wearing seat belt but hit a tree. Young man too.
A lot of the ground guys out here aren’t extremely packed. I talk with most of them. They have pretty normal days and get off around the same time everyday no rush.If he was a Ground kid then Fat Freddy doesn't have a dime in it but that contractor will pay the piper. If the kid was Ground then chances are he was out there flying around like Buzzy The Hummingbird with a truck loaded floor to ceiling end to end stacked like bricks with a zillion stops.
I gave the tldr reason because nobody cares about statistics. You’re taking the topic that was the discussion of a poor young man who tragically died in an accident on the job and talking about irrelevant bull lol. Make your own topic to blab your mouth.You just got done saying that every CITY is different. That's nice but FYI America's urban area comprises only 3% that right 3% of the nation's entire land mass.
Everybody already knows that’s how this world works. People think certain ones should be held accountable but that falls under a legal standpoint that not a lot of people pursue. The working man creates 99% of the revenue gained for any business while the no labor higher ups collect the bargain. In the end nobody higher up cares about the lesser. That’s why we all have to look out for each other. That’s honestly why unions somewhat exists but that’s another topic.Wrong. I believe the focus should be on the forces that may have been in play that contributed to the death of that man. When a tragedy such as this occurs the two words that make me puke are "thoughts" and "prayers" . Other than his immediate family the death of this kid in NOT in the thoughts and prayers of anyone in today's corporate world.
The daily work experience of someone working for a Ground contractor is completely different than the one working for Express.
AS long as that belt is bare when the sort is done FDX management doesn't care and goes blind regarding what happens downline from that point outside of the continued divestiture of risk, liability and variable costs.
No one cares about your opinion on our contract. But thank you. I believe this thread is about a young man who passed away tragically. Have a little decency.It's a nice deal you have at UPS. But it's a deal that ends at 12:01AM on 8-01-23. And given the numerous carriers out there constantly trying to undercut that deal getting a new contract in place early without having to go right down to the wire becomes the first item of business.
It is especially important to get an early contract settlement because everyone knows that the Teamsters have neither the desire nor the power to go out and try to organize nonunion carriers. You Teamster guys at UPS are on an island in a shark laden ocean.
First and foremost, he’s retired. Nothing will change at 12:01 August 1 for him. Secondly, we’ve been over this already. This thread is about a young man’s death, and you’re showing no regard. Do better.It's all going to come to a resolution at 12:01AM 8-01-23. At which time all bets are off. And you will no be employed by UPS. You're only salvation will be the successful completion of a new contract. And rest assured both the old and new scabs and more of them coming along everyday which I am not btw combined with growing expectations of a recession will have a major impact on how those contract negotiations progress.
I don’t think he knows better. Everything is about him, the names he loves to drop and the soapbox he loves to pontificate from.First and foremost, he’s retired.

I feel bad for the young man’s family, way too young. And as a delivery driver, I can certainly say as an inexperienced driver there is a few close calls I had, as most probably have had. Thankfully, I made it through them and learned, sadly this gentleman did not.I don’t think he knows better. Everything is about him, the names he loves to drop and the soapbox he loves to pontificate from.
I have no desire to engage you in your debasement of human life. You can say thoughts and prayers if you like. Or you could just be respectful and say you’re sorry for their loss. If you have issues with the company start them in another thread. You know nothing about this accident and neither does anyone else. Everything is not about you.OK, let's just send the family our insincere "thoughts" and prayers" Then just go on our merry old way reciting biblical scripture while passively waiting for the next cause undetermined crash to happen.
I’m on route right now, so I can’t do a decent job of cleaning this thread for another hour and a half or so.
