Dismiss Notice

Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server on Monday and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

    They can't hide it if there is customer damage.

    That is unfortunate. I have no clue how they classify crashes there is a guy at my center who had a roll away and his truck rolled into a trailer house and he still has his job. 29 years of safe driving is truly awesome sorry man!
  4. A legend that I wan't to be one day. Three years in and still reviewing the days that I had and pick out approvements that I myself can make to be a better driver.

    I agree. A very professional driver and you see what it gets you. Good luck but at least you have the "take this job and shove it" option.

    Just in case anyone is curious, this is what UPS uses for accidents.

    I can't take the credit for it. I think I got it from here a few years ago.

    Article 18 Section 3 of the Master.

    "In the event of a vehicle accident, the Employer shall have twenty (20) days to complete its investigation, if warranted, and ten (10) days to take disciplinary action, if any, unless otherwise mutually agreed. Except for serious accidents, where the driver may be presumed to be at fault, a driver will not be removed from the payroll during an investigation of the accident."

    "The driver will be entitled to non-driving work during this period at his/her normal rate of pay."

    It sounds like you were just coded wrong.

    Ask them to fix it (once you are back to work) if they don't.... grieve it.

    The language is there.

    Thanks Bug, thats what I'm looking for. My first thought it was a coding error. My center manager wasn't sure when I called him on it, my supervisor was off this week. My management team has actually treated me well, everybody was more shocked that a Circle of Honor driver had an accident like this. I would have got my 30 year patch in April and I was thinking about retiring after that. It could have easily been a lot more serious than it turned out. It happens to the best of us I guess.

    That's all it was.

    No further need.... for explanation.

    I'm not certain how it's done anywhere else, as we all know there is no consistency with UPS, but here a driver with 24 years had hit the bed of a pickup while backing out of a congested drive and caused some good damage. They told him that he would still get his 25 year patch after he completes another year of safe driving (after the incident).
