    Every contract the company is going to take something and give something. It's a business..these people want everything spoon fed. I wish I had 7 weeks of vacation like old timer next to me in his 80 stops too. But I dont. But I will gladly have them alleviate some bulk off my route.

    These hybrids aren't replacing us either. Theres plenty of work and not enough drivers as it is. They deserve 9.5 protection? Why exactly do they deserve that? Swing drivers have been getting hammered for years and years. These guys won't even work 5 days a week in their cake ass bulk stops and a few stops here and there.

    So what am I missing exactly?

    You are missing the fact that you have to put in your time before you get the perks. Welcome to the real world. When you have worked 25 years like the old timer next to you you will get your 7 weeks vacation (that is if you fight for decent contracts unlike what is going on with the union now). Believe it or not seniority is a good thing.

    Seniority is crap.
    Benefits and rewards should be based on merit and performance, not simply who has been hanging around the longest like a tick on UPS's ass.
    I've seen enough idiots at my center with "seniority" and the crap they get away with to know better.
    The only thing the union seems to be good for is protecting incompetent, lazy morons who would get fired anywhere else.

  15. That must be why you are still on here posting?
     
  16. It won't really matter because in a short time theyll be fired for rolling pkgs, too many (or a severe) accident(s), or will go into management.

    Then the consistant, mature, and safe drivers will still be the backbone of the service we provide. Screenshot_20190407-084658_Chrome.jpg
