The company and union got what they wanted. A revolving door through which to get bodies to do the job just long enough to be useful, but not long enough to cost the company any real money. Likewise for the union, an endless stream of new members, initiation fees, and union dues but green enough to know nothing of the contract or their rights so they never suck up union resources.Basically nobody quit when I was working. In my small town UPS was considered the ultimate job to land. Anytime we had an opening we would have 5 or 6 hundred people show up to apply. More than once I heard the story of a guy calling in sick to his job just so he could apply at UPS - then he would run into his supervisor from his job doing the same thing. It’s all different now I’m told. Apparently the wait time from PT to FTPCD is about 2 months because the turnover is so high.
This is how both sides want it. It will never change, and likely, it will only get worse.
