Found this on http://teamsterslocal804.org/node/7927 UPS Profits Jump 48% UPS profits jumped by 48% during the fourth quarter, the company announced on Feb 1. In all, UPS made $5.8 billion in after-tax profits in 2010. UPS says it will make even more money this year. In fact the company is forecasting record profits in 2011. In a tough economy, UPS is making big bucks. So why is management upping production harassment? Why are supervisors working while Local 804 members are on lay-off and full-time clerks are reduced to part-time hours? It's not because the company is hurting. It's because of corporate greed- and top management trying to squeeze more profits out of fewer employees. Local 804 members are proud to work for a successful company. And we are proud of the work we do that makes the company's profits possible. In return, we expect management to treat us with dignity and respect- and to respect our rights under the contract.
