I am writing to you as a former UPS customer. I have changed all of my shipping over to FedEx and Airborne. I no longer have confidence in UPS being able to avert a strike and am sick and tired of the teamsters threatening a strike. I count on ups and my business used to depend on you and your service. However, the level of anxiety and frustration I have with the unknown regarding a strike is more than I am any longer willing to tolerate. In addition they are asking for wage, benefit, health and welfare benefits and change in work rules that as far as I can tell are going to increase the rates you are going to charge me until the next contract comes due. This contract may come due in 3yrs instead of 5. That level of anxiety that you would place on your customers is not tolerable. I have no objections to your employees making a fair wage with excellent benefits but when I have to bear the burden of these costs through rate increases enough becomes enough. They are represented by a union that has been under receivership by the federal government for their criminal leadership. I am no longer willing to support their members or your company when the teamsters indicate they are willing to borrow money to go on strike to improve what is already as good a pay and benefit package as can be had in this country. When is enough, enough. I wish you luck in your negotiations with the teamsters for luck is all you are dealing with when I hear and read the intimidating, threatening, and strong arm tactics that you are dealing with. Give my regards to Mr. Hoffa and thank him for sending me to FedEx, Airborne.
