    Told management this morning "DIAD keeps shutting off/ restarting" did it twice before pcm. They say " oh...let someone know when you get in tonight" im sitting waiting for someone to drive 50 minutes to get a DIAD to me because mine is dead now.

    Gotta love the never be proactive about problems attitude here at UPS

    When my DIAD goes down I just keep on delivering and takes pics of the barcodes with my iPhone. Then when they bring me out a new DIAD I can scan in all the deliveries I made while waiting. Now yes, I know I will get chastised for doing this by a few of you, but so be it. I gots things to do.

    I had a DIAD die on me after lodging similar concerns before leaving the hub. I recorded the deliveries on paper & then entered them into a DIAD when I got back to the building. My PM time was about 90 minutes... a big no no for the mgmt. team to have a driver in building for that long.

    The next day, I checked my time card.

    They'd "adjusted" my PM time and clocked me out, stealing about 90 minutes.

    I got that fixed.

    What I learned was that this is the M.O. for my center... the clerks have been TAUGHT to alter our time cards without notifying us or management (how's that for a little CYA)?

    This is not only against contract, but is also against the law. I let my mgmt. know the next time this happens, I'll not contact the union, but the Federal Dept. of Labor and press charges directly against them and the company.

    I know it's bad, but part of me kinda' wants them to screw with my time again.
