    I'm almost super extra positive that some hub managers would love ditching Corp's leash and we all know how a lot of us feel about IBT. What's to say these facilities withdraw from UPS and IBT all together? Just hypothetically speaking of course..

    And give everyone guns, then lock the doors.

    65%+ of American workers would probably love to poop on their boss’s desk. Just not realistic. Neither are independent hubs, unfortunately.

    So, in your mind, a hub manager has some sort of ownership/claim to the property and resources at that hub? You do realize a hub is not a franchise, right? In other words...WTF?

    You mean if center manager Joe said " F this Stuff" and went and started "Joes Backyard Package Hub LLC" and told UPS to GTFO. Planted his flag in the parking lot. Puffed his chest and exclaimed "it's in my hands it must be mine." Then told the IBT "these be my employees now."

    Like that? Joe would get arrested for trespassing. Then everything would go back to normal.

    And now, a Wallation:

    In my insane thinking, I am confident beyond all reason that some operation managers would love to go rouge and run their facilities independent of corporate control. The Teamsters would also embrace a Coup d' etat as. As my medications are wearing off, I was wondering, what if these two withdraw and form their own independent corporation? Please answer in small words because I'm really wasted right now on the blue and red pills. I also mave have overdosed on some crack.

    Well there are plenty of shipments that don't run through UPS singularly. And work is already being outsourced it's the same concept. We draw in a couple other hubs for support. Tell Amazon we have a simple yet organized network and bam well find work guaranteed.

    The building is owned but not the employees. Sorry to juggle around the ping pong balls that have replaced your brain but it's not that farfetched.
