    Who cares. The poor kid is about to get destroyed by UPS senority, especially since every old di** driver will know he's riding daddy's coattails. Let him have an easy packet, it's all uphill from there

    This is why UPS should have never ended the no relative policy.

    Yeah, but we’d have no eligible employees in Kentucky....

    Great aunt Hattie falls and breaks her hip on the ice walking back from the outhouse and half the center wants to take a day off.

    So how do you know that the Dad ran 25 stops out of his car? Are you sure no one went and helped him? Who tweaked the ORION? Not the DAD believe me.

    There is no way the trainee would still be driving the next day...

    Change my mind....

    Nope it was his dad. When the supervisor riding with him tells you that and freely tells people that then it's fact. His dad is the one fixing Orion everyday. Tweaking everything and preload supervisors are grooming his truck daily to make sure it's perfect stop for stop.

    If this is true, you should talk to your steward, and he should verify this with the supervisor that told you in a manner that suggests it's just regular chit-chat, and then he should escalate this to the BA once he's verified it.

    The BA can come in and talk with management about how great their new mentorship program for present and future qualifying drivers is, and thank them for setting a new generation of teamsters up for success - I would think that a DQ might be in this kids future after it's established that these things happened to/for him, and they will/have not happened for other people whose parents don't work in corporate.

    If true, the kid aint gonna be in the package car long anyway, Prolly be your dispatch sup this peak. Then he can regale you with stories about his days in package.

    I'd be more concerned with keeping a fair and consistent workplace for the teamsters rank and file, than minding my own business, in this particular case.

    Unless everyone who's qualifying will be receiving this leg up, and then I think it's fantastic, and I commend management for taking the necessary step to help the young drivers out and break them in easy.
