You are so misguided it's pathetic.I realize u guys are old timers and I would like to think I could have been one if I were older. I realize my "sob story" is probably much needed comic relief from a career doing exactly what I was doing for $15 more an hour and 6 weeks vacay in your prime. The thing is, you are are a generation behind me. So you dont care about my generation. There will be those who skate by on figuring everything out themselves or being more "likeable" and gaining extra cushion. My story can still happen to anyone of them and anyones loved ones around a ups truck who rightfully believes that driver is aware of every hazard and plausibly assumes there will be a warning in the event of the 70,000 to 1 odds of a freak situation/ accident. Theres no excuse for zero online training, no excuse for no delivery training on actual deliveries, no excuse for zero sup or trainer tests on methods on a route. Its just not sexy so it hasnt made it into union demands and negotiations. Its almost like it threatens manhood or something. So fine, make your $93k a year with great insurance and feel like you run the world. Real men think of others and think of common sense. Not having any chance to catch a mistake
or prevent this accident via training and/or alarms does not make any common sense. If it had cost a life- is that worth all of your posturing? since u guys are "real
men"- no microwave,
no plumbing, no cars, no insurance.
no union making ups pay and insure you well. you're just on your own.
no one needs to consider you and you dont need to consider anyone else.
real men live texas style in a sub zero blizzard!
It's old-timers are the ones that voted no on this contract so that we didn't have a two-car wage in place
You young pinks are too lazy to spend 15 seconds to vote on the contract that will affect the rest of your life .
So I don't feel sorry for your one bit
