The dollar sign ($) goes in front of the 28. Do you drive right now for ups? I can almost say that you do not, however it is not over the money, whay many are unhappy with this contract. Its the language changes that we are upset with. Its real hard to draw a retirement pension if you get fired because of weaker language!umm if yall know of any lemme know!!!!
I would have voted yes on a new contract with NO pay raise except COLA for 5 years. Provided that contract would have allowed 3 8hr days a month with 24hr notice, strengthened the 9.5 language, removed all allowances for subcontracting and supervisors working, and stabilized the pension.
The givebacks of our raises would go a LONG way in making the fund solvent.
When I put the pension as the top issue I truly thought that dramatically reduced raises would be the way they would go. I never thought my Union would allow the kind of givebacks and concessions in work rules they have.
That, in retrospect, was stupid of me.
It has absolutely nothing to do with being civil or not being civil.
The point of his post was to be a donkey, hence why I made the comment. I stand behind my original opinion.
If he thinks people are upset about the contract due to money, he's a donkey.
If he honestly believes if we vote no we will all be terminated or UPS will fold shop, he's a donkey.
If he honestly doesn't care about what language has been taken out, added or changed....well you get the idea. He's a donkey.
