    All caveats aside, you know it’s a pretty good J.O.B when you get over $40 an hour and full benefits (probably the best full family healthcare plan I’ve ever seen). Yes, the work sucks sometimes and we work really REALLY hard. Especially during peak, we work to the bone. We work until our fingers are numb and achy in the morning. Yes it is challenging. In the end, we are paid a lot of money to deliver BOXES to someone’s door step!

    You do less work during peak. You become more like a supervisor.

    No my friend. We are paid to not hurt ourselves or the people around us while bringing everything to houses including the kitchen sinks

    LOL, I'll take that to the next level! I am sick and tired of delivering to a house and seeing a heavy package that FedEx delivered earlier in the day JUST TO GET CALL TAG FOR THAT SAME HEAVY PACKAGE THE NEXT DAY!

    When you say we get paid to just move boxes it minimizes the job and the bs that comes from working here.

    Don’t be weak minded enough to focus on your own compensation while the Union helps the Company push a sellout contract through.

    Future UPSers will say this was the year when UPS was making big profits, the economy was booming and UPSers still pushed through a contract that began the mass selling out of UPSers for years to come.

    You’re right, we also move bull semen. That doesn’t really come (pun intended) in a box.

    Oh, and keep in mind that current FT drivers wouldn’t be immune to the effects of the proposed contract either, given the loose language therein. 40 hour guarantee “if work is available”, etc etc.
