Take it from me at some point you will need the union and be thankful you have one. For years I always thought it was a waste of my money to be in the union. I was fortunate to work for some pretty good management people. Some better then others but nothing like this piece of garbage we have now. Just to give you a quick background on myself , I am am 22.3 inside overnight employee. Long story short this tyrant full time supervisor was transferred to my shift after being thrown out of basically every hub in New York. How this man still has a job is mind boggling. He messes up people’s pay , doesn’t put vacations in correctly , abuses the work force and talks down to people (including his own management team ), doesn’t know anything about the job and is a compulsive liar. Some say he reads and writes at a 1st grade level which is why he needs other people to do his paperwork for him. He’s so incompetent he needs part timers under him with less years on the job to do his job tasks. This man has been caught throwing packages into trucks only to then try and write the union member up for loading misloads. He tells bulk drivers to put the bulk in the wrong places then argues and tries to write them up for it. He’s union busting and constantly trying to turn everyone against each other. He doesn’t follow seniority , actually he doesn’t follow any rules. He’s notorious for not being accessible , never being in the operation and for having no compassion. This from a person that leaves early and takes off weeks and days anytime he has the slightest family problem. He works about 4 hours a day , out of which 2 he hides somewhere and the rest he’s yelling /screaming/and threatening a member , a supervisor under him or even one of his fellow full time supervisors. He’s creating a miserable environment by creating such a stressful environment. All that being said , he could be YOUR next boss. If and when that happens you’ll thank almighty god himself for the union like I did. It’s obvious management can’t get rid of him despite all his terminable offenses he’s committed against his own management team and the union. He cries racism but is the biggest racist and sexist I’ve ever met. He literally hits on every female new hire that walks in the place. We were talking in the cafeteria the other day in between the shifts the twilight and night about why he has not been fired for sexual harassment yet. Anyhow I left the best part for last. There are talks that may make this idiot a manager lololol. How laughable. But that’s what we are dealing with. And as long as UPS allows tyrants like this in the management ranks we will unfortunately need the union.
