    Was thinking about this the other day. We had years and years to negotiate. Now we are giving them free extensions. Lmfao. What a joke

    I'm not negatively affected by this contract but would support the union if they decided to strike

    was just talkin to a feeder buddy in sacramento. most of the older drivers like the contract . mainly because of pension issues. makes sense for older employees.

    that said , if the union called for a strike , i would honor that.

    We authorized a strike. I for one think a Strike needs to happen. We sit out a month, a week, a couple days, whatever it takes. Lets send a strong message. Lets not e no so overwhelmingly that the negotiating team has to Strike UPS. I'm all in.

    It seems to me that this 15,000,000,000 contract is not good enough. If it isn't lets, all vote no and send a message to strike UPS. Come on, lets do it. I can survive a strike. The company would be a little different when its over but why not take it out on the company. They don't want to give you what you want and you know you work so hard for them.

    And I do like this contract, but I think I can't save the member from himself or herself, so I think we need to vote it down and get the ball rolling for the inevitably. A strike, just like 1997.

    Fitbit App :) Vote! We all agree everybody should vote

    I am definitely, unequivocally voting YES! I expected in this day & age we'd be looking at giving back across the board, top to bottom. INSTEAD, we ALL got RAISES! Take that Mr. Center Manager with 4.5 years left of pension.

    I have talked to approx. 44 of our employees and all voting YES! Only that lazy arse Cecil is complaining.

    Yet, that's what Ceez does anyhoo!

    So yeah, very happy. Thank you! Thank you!

    I wonder what the percentage of members who are ready financially are for a work stoppage is. What do you think it is? I know our brothers and sisters in the southern region will overwhelming cross the line, but we could shut them down in paces Sean and Fred control. We shut down Louisville and Chicago and this thing is in out left back pocket.

  18. He thinks he's being clever by trying to trick people into believing we're going to strike if they vote no.

    Just another scare tactic, the pushover company shills are trying it all over the place. He knows full well there won't be a strike even if it's voted down the first time.

    I would be fine if there was a strike. It would hurt my pockets for a few weeks but in the grand scheme of things who gives a :censored2:.
