    Yes but it's a rap. I'm working on the ballad as we speak.

    Well, I was on the Social Media (SM) committee at UPS Corporate for two years and when we went over trends for SM, Brown Cafe (BC) never was discussed. The HR rep on the committee said they had monitored BC a couple of times when they rolled out "enhancements" but the feedback from BC did not correlate to the feedback from focus group meetings and polls or the Corporate Employee crap we filled out every year. They said the data was skewed and the population was not random ... BC was considered to be skewed towards "negative" employees.

    Local management may come on here and/or monitor to try and figure out if 'their' reports are on here.
    I know that happened to STUG.

    Didn't you retire like 5 years ago?

    I'll just leave it at that. ;)

    Also that doesn't mean the website is not monitored.

    It just means they didn't think it was worth the time.

    Because a raise is always the core of every contract, and it was guaranteed to be there if we have a union at all, and therefore UPS got away without paying the raise for ~9 months and counting. While you might argue that we aren't guaranteed a raise that hasn't been negotiated yet and that the money wasn't ours until UPS actually paid it, I don't think you're prepared to apply this logic and rule more broadly. This money is also invested by many employees in the 401K and stock programs. They could have bought more stock with the raise which might have benefitted UPS more than holding onto the money in an act of greed. You seem to be the type that would be ok if UPS announced tomorrow that the backpay is no longer valid due to company cutbacks because, after all, you were never guaranteed the raise. After 9 or 10 months, why not just forfeit the raise back to the company, right?

    They didn’t pay it for nine months because it wasn’t negotiated yet. If you want to know what type I am, I’m the type that will smash your teeth into the hood of your car in the parking lot. I want my raise as much as the next guy, but we aren’t due any money in excess of the raise. Read a little further and you’ll see I mentioned our pension contributions and 401k as well. Now stfu.

    I’m not saying it’s right. But how can you ask for interest on a raise that wasn’t negotiated yet? And how much would everyone complain if the check wasn’t correct? Whine all the time about everything here.

    Never mind. Everyone’s right. We should get even more money than we are due from our employer. For nothing! Lmfao.

    The part that kills me, it’s not that great of a raise over the five years of the contract, but these guys are acting like 7 months worth is gonna change their lives. It cracks me up!
