Anybody have any updates on subs moving feeder work?
Yea it's happening all over.
I've seen random guys moving trailers in and out of the yard using non ups trucks and not looking like feeder drivers at all...
Full beards, smoking and spitting chew out the window and wearing hats that say "Git R' Done"
Scab, a strikebreaker, a person who works despite strike action or against the will of other employees. (from Wikipedia)
They are not scabs, basically it's not their fault. Many of them are independent owner-operators working for truck brokers. (Think UPS Supply Chain Solutions) Basically just people trying to make a living. The only ones to blame is UPS trying to circumvent the contract and a National Grievance Committee decision.
Hoffa at his best. Let them understaff us. And bring In the gypsies.
Are we supposed to double our workforce for 4 weeks?
No. But when you dont hire,for years. Dont cry short handed.
We've hired at least 40 drivers in packages alone in my building.
The "strike" work was use by the union.
My center officially has drivers from off the street...feels dirty. We're doomed, right?
This past Friday, 177 gave UPS 72-hour prior written notice of authorization to take strike action.
The subcontracting continues in my building a week later and we're not forming picket lines.
And people wonder why UPS laughs and gets their way come negotiating time?
I thought the notice was concerning UPS allowing the contractors on property, not about the actual subcontracting.
Good ol' boys
I'm just curious how's stuff supposed to move this time of year?
What I hear is that subs can move it, just not into the yard.
This stuff has been going on since spring in my area.
