Just wondering if this management to wear name tag is enforced anywhere? thanks
Never, ever, in 27 plus years with UPS, have ever seen a manager wear a name tag.
Ours don't. But we also haven't filed on it.
I was never even issued one when I moved to management.
I only bring it up when they are trying to ask me DOK questions. Sorry, I'm not answering. No visible ID.
UPS cannot afford to buy name tags for every management person.
We use to have the stick ons we wrote our name on if a BA was around.
Do you honestly care that much? Or are you just doing it to be difficult?
My wife makes me wear one when we go to bed at nite so she will remember who I am.
Do you honestly care that much about safety ?
Or, are you just doing it to be difficult ?
Pretty sure the NMA gives us the right to issue 72 hours notice of intent to strike if the company refuses to abide by a national panel decision. Remember Local 177 issuing a strike notice in December due to shiny wheels being on the yard?
That might be one to keep in the back pocket.
You are willing to go on strike over a mgt person refusing to wear their name tag? Yet people wonder why unions have a bad name.
I never said that. I simply said the NMA gives us the right to issue a notice.
The contract language is pretty clear on the company complying with National Panel decisions.
If I remember correctly.... there are already National Grievance decisions on this.
(Upholding the language)
If a Local is having a problem with the company complying with this....
The Local can send a 72 hour strike notice (certified mail) and cc: the IBT.
It will be resolved within 24 hours.
Fair enough---so you are willing to file an intent of notice over the refusal of a mgt person to wear his or her name tag? Yet people wonder why unions have a bad name.
Why would it give Unions a bad name ? The company agreed to the language.
Or, did the company have no intent, of living up to what they agreed to ??
It's a well known tactic of the company....
To try and gain things through the grievance procedure, that they didn't have the ability
to get in negotiations.
It's beyond redundant.
If there is a contract why is is so hard to follow????
LOL right. Because my wearing a name tag is in the name of safety.
Tough to wear a name tag when I was never issued one.
Yet people wonder why big business have/has a bad name.
Someone WAY above UpstateNYUPSer sat down at a table with someone WAY above frigidadcorrector.
There was an exchange of ideas and concerns. The two parties came to an agreement and presented the tentative contract to the membership to vote.
The contract passed.
Why does management feel the need to continually usurp even the simplest conditions in the agreed upon contract?
Yet people wonder........
OK, quit your whining! Here's your nametag:
Separate names with a comma.
