I am a wife of a wrongly fired UPS "Partner", I have personal UPS experience, I have been lurking here and I have finally decided to post. I am so angry over this situation that it has literally made me ill. But justice shall come, one way or another and then I can go on with my life. My man was singled out several years ago for calling attention to an area that UPS was, shall I say, having some "indiscretion" about increasing revenue. He was hounded ever since, particularly by center, division and regional mgt. Since his firing many, many hourly employees have called our home to check in or wish him well, none can believe what has happened to him. Some of those employees it seems, have been punished for this. I am still in shock and it has been quite a while since this unfortunate event. It is true (I almost bought into it in the 80's), that UPS brainwashes management into thinking that they are set for life, that the sacrifice of 16-17 hour long days year after year, will all be worth it, all for the "Partnership." It is sad that corrupt management have allowed for this injustice. They extinguished someone who actually was against the "us against them" attitude, who tried to be honest and stand up for what was right, who had integrity. I hope UPS management reads this, pauses and maybe somewhere finds a cell of humanity out of the evil that lurks inside some of them. Think about how you are playing with life, it is like playing with fire and you just might get burned.
