Your joking right I have never heard of someone paying for a bad DR.
He's scared to file
Perhaps you Joe Unions need to read the contract. Don't be afraid to ask for help with the big words.
I read the contract and interpret it as a union employee should. You read the contract and interpret as a management employee. It's all about interpretation. I interpret it the correct way as it should be.
I don't have a copy in front of me but do know that we can be held financially responsible for bad DR's with a value of $100 or more.
Define how it was a "bad DR". Did you override a Code 4? Unless you override the DIAD, and as long as you DR'd it out of sight, out of weather, there's no way it's a "bad DR". What were the details of the DR?
He probably screwed something up. My bet is a Code 4 override, or he DR'd a laptop or some other obvious electronic device. I only know one guy that had to pay for a DR that he screwed up, and it was a laptop that he DR'd to a business. This guy was a runner. Go figure.
I DR packages on a daily basis.
It was a delivery to a college apt building.
It was a pair of basketball sneakers for the star player on the local college team.
Perhaps you should stick to being rude to people in the hood.
I have known guys over the years to( 'Buy a package' ) !!
One driver DR "d a gun thru mail slot at a closed gun shop,another guy DR'd a repaired watch 3 Grand to a shared back door multi family and one guy dumped 5 grand cash only computers in am to a business, came back later in the afternoon for money,but they had moved out !! All 3 violated the UPS rules and the Union couldn't do a thing !! common sense should prevail on all DR's ,whether its a code 4 or not !!
Still sometimes UPS will still try to blame the driver for a good DR just so the company won't have to pay a claim (and stick it to the driver). I have driver followups claiming I misdelivered packages before according to GPS when I knew I was at right house. Such as claiming I was on another street that I was never on that day. Or if I hit stop complete walking back to truck say I delivered it next door. ALWAYS hit stop complete when you are at exact place you leave package to CYA.
Maybe rules have changed since I left but I always thought you couldn't D/R to any apartment complexes? They once told me I was going to have to pay for a package I d/r'd to a residence. I told them I'd quit first. Never heard a thing about it again. Management always had my back.
Upstate, you must not be an upstanding employee even though you're a runner/gunner. Your management team should back you if you were.
Don't think he's the runner gunner management's favorite type. I think he's the "you don't see anything, and let the contract get violated" management's type of favorite. Just my 2 cents.
...and you are basing this all on posts on an anonymous Internet forum.....?
You should have kept your change in your pocket as you ain't even close.
I read the contract enough to know that if management read the contract , they sure as hell dont live up to it so why the hell should Ibe held to it?!? One time they tried to get me on a sopposedly bad DR on a Coleco vision(this is going back aways). Anyhoo, I paid a visit to the consigney and looked through the window while he was playing the video game while smoking from a bong. I tapped at the window and startled him. He then saw who it was and sheepishly opened the door . Anyways, he called up UPS and said that his mother took the delivery inside without telling him.
I then joined him for a half an hour (on the clock) and played some Donkey Kong while smoking from the bong as well. Finished 3 and 1/2 hours over that day and yet still Smoked the route, if ya know what I mean.
I call BS
Yes, you said yourself on these very forums you are a runner/gunner. You saying you lied?
I have no problem admitting to the runner/gunner part-----the part I took offense to was when you said I was not an "upstanding employee".
Perhaps you should learn how to do a proper DR, and learn how to do the job before you comment again. You might think I'm "rude", but idiots pay for bad DR's.
