PAS is a system that UPS uses to sort and load packages in the Package Center. When a box is unloaded off an inbound load, the tracking number is scanned and a special label (PAL) is applied. The PAL label tells the Sorters which conveyor belt it goes on, and it tells the Preloader which route and section of the Package Car to load it on. The EDD System is a way for our Dispatch Sup to even out our workloads and it give us a stop by stop list of how our Routes are to be effectively run. Unfortunately, these systems often have a few problems with them.
For the record, how many drivers here have been on the right street in front of the right address but the Diad is beeping red that you are not in the right location?
This has happened very frequent. To say the most is that this system does work. However it is not perfect and there are gliches that can raise red flags unfairly by UPS management!
Teamsters we need to stick together folks. I have not to much faith with new UPS'ers when it comes to UNIONS!
These newhires seem like a scabs trying to steal our jobs! Puck em....
Watch your back and cover your butt! Someone is out to get your job!
It is very unfortunate that UPS Management is trying to use the competition method of new hires!
I say have a layoff of bottom 10percenters soon!
Sorry rookies.....you get into accidents, you make veteran excellent employees look like crappy on paper....You work through your lunch without pay, start early without pay, get injured off the clock and give crap service that is distroying this company....Not to mention you fail to take your paid bread and don't even know how to enter it in the diad! U punch out before you finish your assignment. U don't know your contract...I feel like I am south of the border
. The list goes on.....You have management turning a blind eye on all their claims and accidents!
I know alot of rookies that follow the methods and contract but lately it seems most rookies are more interested in butt kissing management than anything!
These are the same people that will cross a picket line!!
Heck with em! Steal there UNION dues and let them burn out!!!!!
