This is my first post on Browncafe and while I am new here I have been with UPS working on Preload Bulk for nearly 10 years. Recently however, I was granted a transfer request to Intra-sort (a night sort) and was given the job of loading outbound trailers. While most would cringe at such a job, I took it as a challenge and something new. Ive now been loading these trailers for 2-3 weeks and just yesterday was told by management that I had 2 missorts in one night and that disciplinary action can be taken against me. This shocked me completely. I understand why UPS would want to cut out all the missorts, I really do. And I had zero complaints in my firs 2-3 weeks in my new area. But according to my management team, they chose not to discipline me because A) I received ZERO official training and have had to learn as I go by basically being thrown into a trailer, with a scanner, and told to load and B) I am a good worker (their words not mine) and they would let it slide this time. While no disciplinary action has been taken, I want to know what protections I have against any draconian punitive measures management can take against me. As I already stated, I received ZERO training on proper loading methods, safety protocol, smart scanners, etc. I actually had a friend who transferred from Sort aisle into revenue audit and he received a whole week of training on how to face labels to scanners. I on the other hand did not get any whatsoever. Also, another way of looking at it, while a missort did occur in my trailer(s), what led to that missort wasnt just my fault, but very likely a sorter messed up, or maybe even the pickoff up top committed a mistake, so why should I as the loader bare all the responsibility? For what it counts I have good attendance and a good work ethic but I am just really bummed about this scenario. Any help would be greatly appreciated. As an aside, I also contacted a couple of my Steward buddies but since they are not loaders they could not immediately tell me what to do or what I can expect off the top of their heads. Which is why I've come here for advice. Anyone?
