This is a bit of a long story. So I apologize ahead of time. I've been a UPS part timer now for 6 months. While working as an unloader I experienced an issue with one of the supervisors that repeated itself on numerous occasions so I finally contacted my union rep and with the help of the center manager it got resolved. No grievance needed to be filed because I was 'assured' by the manager that if anything ever happend again they would deal with it swiftly. Fast track a month later and I'm out of the unload and loading package cars. I was bounced to every pull in the building in the course of a week before they finally put me on a dreaded pull that no one in the building wanted. It's 4 trucks and a very heavy pull. I did this pull for 2 weeks and the only way it could be done without shutting the belt off for 10 minutes at a time was to literally run from truck to truck. I spoke with the employee who did that pull prior to me and he said he experience multiple miss loads everyday and was always the last one out of the building. So I thought if I was keeping up and not shutting the belt off I was ahead of the game. A week ago I found out the manager that had helped with me with the supervisor issue was being transferred and the manager we were getting was coming from the center that my manager had been sent to. (word is that manager had made a serious mess of things at that center...but this is only a rumor we've heard). Suddenly my pull was even HEAVIER. The last 4 days have been absolute hell and I've had to shut the belt off, yell for my belt supervisor for help ect. Yesterday almost entire trailer was for my trucks alone. I complained to my belt supervisor about the safety aspect of this. My tucks are too heavy, over crowded and the fact I have to move so fast throws the "safety tips" we all get to learn right out the window. Of course with more volume there are more miss loads. I couldnt believe I was getting this much volume so I told my supervisor that I couldnt in good concious accept responsibility for miss loads that would ultimately get me yelled at everyday when I'm being force fed 3 times the volume as any other pull in the building. I know how this may sound, but as I've come to learn UPS doesn't exactly excel in "reasonable" behavior. So jump to today, I'm loading my trucks and getting slammed. A driver for the truck that gets slammed the hardest said he thought Id find it interesting to know that he had gotten in trouble from regional management for having too many 70+lbs packages on his truck yesterday. Im not sure if there is any truth to this or not but it didnt suprise me because that truck always leans one way or another when it leaves. Meanwhile my supervisor is of course busy helping the other people on the belt. I never get a chance to do ANYTHING but pull packages and put them in the trucks. So I grabbed a box that was of decent weight. I tested it for shifting contents, grabbed opposite corners and picked it up using my powerzone. I walked into the truck, went to set the box down and felt a tear in my groin region. I immediately let go of the box and knew something was wrong. I yelled for my belt supervisor and it took them 10 minutes to come down to the belt. It wasnt until I grabbed a driver passing by and told him to go get the supervisor, I was hurt and could not keep up with the belt that they came down from helping another loader. I told them what happend and said that it "really f%^*ing hurt". He said "I bet" and handed me some boxes. Let me say that this supervisor I've never had problems with. They seem to be just as over worked as I am and they run around all day helping everyone on the belt. Theres just not enough time for them to be down with me helping as much as I would like. So I limp through (more like dragging a leg) through the remainder of the day. On the way out the supervisor tells me to see the other manager and explain what happend. Speaking with the manager they tell me they dont know what the new center managers policy is regarding this and that I have to go speak to them. So I go to the center managers office and explain what happend. They jumped out of their chair and started screaming about how I wasnt doing my job properly and that I would find out "real quick" that they dont tolerate injuries. I explained to him that there is only so much time in the day and that with our belt being as slammed as it is hard for anyone to help anyone. Period. They then find my belt supervisor and proceed to run them down about how "I said Im not getting the help I deserve" which is in no way what I said. They go on to explain that this is a serious issue and that I wasn't following proper polciy ect. I was in awe of this reaction that my belt supervisor smirked at me due to the look of disbelief on my face. I couldnt believe that I had just gotten hurt doing my job and was being pointed at and spoken to like a child. Apparently this manager doesnt know what "his" or "UPS" policy is in regards to this issue so he sent me upstairs to another managers office where me, my belt supervisor and this manager spoke about the incident. Now I've had groin injuries (on the other side) in the past. Nothing severe. A day or two of tightness and it goes away. They said if I was to go to "their doctor" I would need to file an injury report ect. I told them I very well may do that, but I wanted to go home and ice it down. The pain sucked but I was starving and also wanted to look up if this was even worth pursuing. I bring home less than 600 dollars a month and from what I've read on these forums about injuries (especially where management is resistant) its a very hard fight to get anywhere. I have no desire to injure myself for this little amount of money. But at the same time, I have to work. They explained to me that if I decide to go to the hospital to call them first. I asked why the center manager didnt just say that instead of accusing me of not doing my job. I got only shurgs of the shoulders. My questions to this forum is, if you were in my shoes what would you do? How would you react. Quite frankly I'm exhausted from the past 4 days and today just put me past the point of being able to think clearly. I appreciate anyone taking the time to read this and a response is greatly welcomed.
