The post office has a history of shootings in the work place. Thus the phrase "Going Postal" has been instilled in our pop culture. What I find to be interesting, is that they(The Postal authorithy) claim that the violence in the work place is caused by pressure and stress. We here at UPS, I believe have the same amount or more pressure and stress(we handle pounds,they handle ounces,lol). Seriously, but to my knowledge we have not had the shooting or killings that they have experienced in the work place. This is my opinion and observation(so I could stand to be corrected) of UPS mgt on how they avoid such a dangerous situation. I assume in their training that they are told to push the envelope(in a disciplinary case), Then fall back or even retreat in some cases where the employee might so signs of becoming irrational or mentally unstable(in the disciplinary case). The last stage, Mgt than takes on a more reconcilable approach(example:Hi how are you doing?friendly,positive). A break the ice, type of thing. Mgt and hourlies of this site, what is your answer to why UPS does not have the type of work place violence as the Post Office does?
