CNS - Family of Late UPS Worker Loses Benefits Bid
Sucks but UPS played by the rules on this one.
And this is where ups needs to step up to the plate and do what's right.
UPS hasn't and will never step up and "do what's right". There's no money to be had in that nonsense.
They will however, transform a golf cart into a miniature package car and "deliver a wish" to Lil' Johnny from Nowheresville USA.
Have you submitted your " deliverable wish" to upsers.com?
You can make a difference...
That is one of the grossest things I've heard any corporation do. I understand all the documents that were signed makes the move legal, but for s sake, that is plain evil. 37 years in and not even a human response by UPS.
Because you know, it's not like the billions in profits each year, and a 10 year paid pension is going to bring Big Brown down.
Now it's time for the civil suit against UPS.
This is what happens when you get corporate UPS and their attorneys in a board room together. And it's also shows how UPS will play by the rules only when it benefits them. I don't know how these people can go home and look their families in the eyes every night and pretend that they are decent human beings.
Thats messed up.... all those years dedicated to UPS. So that your family can live good.... and then get screwed at the end...
I want to say unbelievable but it's not.
It's like when a driver called into work and explained his wife might be having labor pains and was calling out because he needed to take her to the hospital. When the driver explained that she was still weeks away from her expected date the sup responded "It's probably not the baby can't you just have a neighbor take her".
...by changing the rules...?
It is nothing like this.
The sad part is that he screwed himself.
Based on what? From what I read the advice given was within the guidelines of applicable law and the member in question was of sound mind and body when he made the decision.
It would be nice if the company said "close enough" and "did the right thing" but how long would companies stay in business if the continually chose to "do the right thing".
Dam they couldah done something
...and they were all set to until he changed his mind...
Yes, UPS did what they were "legally" obligated to do however, it still was not the "right" thing to do. I feel nothing but shame for whoever made that decision.
The deceased made their decision easy for them by putting his wishes in writing.
They had a contract and the company is simply living up to their end of the bargain.
I knew this guy ,, seemed like a good family man , and a company man !
Only knew him briefly , but seemed like an all around nice guy, sorry to see his family in this predicament
Look, I also hope that the Company does the right thing.
MB suggested a civil trial may be forthcoming.
If this was my building I would print that article out and secretly leave copies around the entire building.
