    Our reps just got back from 3-4 days of national "Negotiations" in Florida. Most locals spent alot of money to send reps to be on hand for bargaining. The company was gracious enough to meet with us face to face for less than 15 min! And these upper management Retards can't figure out why we will no longer meet early. Maybe video conferencing next time? Why waste members money when the company CEO's can't get their heads out of their own :censored2:s. Orion could do a better job than this new generation of UPS management morons -Lol Everyone on the union side is now convinced UPS management wants do all the deliveries themselves this August. I can't wait.

    we’ve been infiltrating illegal immigrants and chinese coolies into the country for years now

    when the pre-arranged signal goes up, we’ll roll out our super-scabs, decker in ill fitting (but cheap) uniforms, driving automatics, with full ORION optimization and mapping, at $15/hr

    Trump helped us organize the final steps in 2016, with the assistance of the Russian embassy

    Both sides exchange proposals ahead of the actual meetings so much of the work is already done before they sit down.

    Now for the serious question. What percentage could competitors take that never comes back to UPS?

    It would be at least 10% to as much as 20% that we would lose forever.

    While I don’t think there will be a strike and that it will actually get ratified early, I think you are wayyy over estimating fedex’s capacity/capabilities.

    I think that’s a little short sighted.

    There is no way that Fedex would come close to taking everything in the event of a strike.

    However, if companies are switching to Fedex (even partially) to “cover all bases”, it is highly possible that a good percentage of that might never go back.

    :bsbullf:----------I doubt even 1% would be "permanent loss". These companies shuffle deliver companies around like they were your ex.

    Our center had our largest customer switch to Fedex about two weeks ago. They would send 4 trailers worth of outgoing packages to our local sort, now they only send us 25% of a trailer with all their 3rd party billing packages. Local Sort volume dropped by about 35-40% a day.

    One of their reasons was they don't want their business to be interrupted by a strike and would be willing to come back and make a deal once the contract negotiations are over.

    Maybe I wrong but didn't FedEx make ship jumping companies sign long term contacts last time if they switched at the last minute because they were overwhelmed.
