6 months to discuss drones, self driving trucks, etc.??? The union can insist on discussing for 5 years, but if there isn’t anything in there to keep ups from replacing us with robots down the road UPS will still do it! Regular drivers will be replaced with combo drivers. There’s nothing stopping UPS from pushing all the work to weekends for combo drivers and cutting our routes Monday and Friday, then nailing us for 13 hour days Tuesday-Thursday. And still keep us from being able to file 9.5. And while there is some level of protection this contract, UPS will chip away at it every 5 years til we are all gone. They’ll harass us, cut hours, cut routes or whatever it takes to get rid of us. What happened to the excessive OT protection we were promised early in negotiations? Cutting routes isn’t a solution. What about better harassment protection we were promised? The only thing we get out of this is $400 more for pension. But between automation, combo drivers and typical attrition less than half of us will see that increase! As much as we complain about this job, it’s still a good career worth protecting. Vote no and. It vote out anyone that tries to sell us on this BS contract. Don’t be afraid to strike! UPS can afford it less than we can. A few days without pay is a lot better than looking for a job 5 years before you planned on retiring!
