    It’s been almost a month since I’ve been laid off as a ups driver. I was one of the best drivers out of all the casual drivers that started with me. They laid me off on the 26th day. I showed up early everyday to sort my truck to ensure I had a smooth day and to finish the route. Did whatever they asked me to do. I felt be littled. So tomorrow morning I’m going to put on my uniform and show up to my center ready to work. And to prove to them that I am serious to work regardless of the outcome. Regardless if they ask for my uniform and ID back. But at least I made the initiative to show UPS I am serious. But at the end they are going to look at me and laugh and think of me as just a number. But at the end of they day I will know that I gave it my all and at least I tried. So critizize me all you want. It’s up to me to determine my life and my future.

    They don’t answer. My center is always busy. It’s peak season all year round over there. East coast closer to nyc.

    So you worked off the clock?
    I hope you never make senority.
    People who work off the clock are in violation of the contract and should be thrown out of the union.

    You weaken the union every second you work off the clock.

    I wish they would fire people that work off the clock.

  5. You definitely need to go talk to someone. We usually run less routes this time of the year and we don't have many people on vacation right now.

    Do they call guys back during summer time? Or just before summer time?
     
  7. It usually picks back up around May.

    Wilson1397 Half the lies they tell about me aren't true!!

    I would still go there and talk to someone to let them know you’re still interested.

    you showed up early and worked off the clock. Breaking both company and union rules. And you wonder why?

    So as a casual driver coming in early everyday to sort my truck and trying everything possible to make book makes the job harder? We don’t need people like you? Even the union told me to to do everything I can to make book. I was doing what I could to make book. Take your negativity and shove it.

    And I wasn’t discharged. I still have my uniform and ID. Though I don’t like working for free I did what I had to do. Senior guys even agreed. But once you’re in the union, they told me to not touch a single box if you’re off the clock. UPS loves when people work for free.

    We've heard that line before.

    Big no-no. Management sees you doing that and will expect it forever.

    Not to mention it is in violation of union and labor laws.

    Can't hurt, but don't bet the farm on it working.

    Ok then , quit complaining and wait your turn to drive. Then once you drive everyday , you can complain that your driving everyday.
