    We got a flyer passed out last week that we are hiring people for peak to deliver packages out of their own cars. Paying up to 21/hr and inside employees cannot do it. Anyone else seen this? Curious how this will work. Seems to me it will end badly

    We had 3 of them in our building. 1 came back and went on to be a driver.

    They don't like to follow policy.

    We are a smaller hub. Been there 14yrs this is the first time I’ve heard of this lol. Everyone laughed when they passed the flyers around

    Inside employees can’t do it pretty much means they are skirting some type of law/union rule.
    I don’t like it.
    It should be offered up to inside employees too.

    I don't get it. WHO in their F'n right mind would come out of retirement for peak? One of the guys (the latest one to retire) mentioned that he was going to do this at the last retired UPS driver monthly breakfast we have. It didn't take him long to realized he probably should have never brought it up. I have a feeling we won't be seeing him at breakfast anytime soon.

    They plan on making PVDs and 8 hour day here.
     
  10. They should make them pay union dues too.

    They are. No initiation fee though.
     
  12. Maybe an accidental broken windshield and a flat tire?

    We’ve got one that goes back every year
    Said it’s the best job he’s ever had gets paid driver wage and is basically a shuttle driver told them doesn’t want more than 8 hours a day

    Claims he made 6k last year
     
  14. Once I make up my mind to leave this place, I'll never have a desire to come back.

    I've asked @BigUnionGuy about the PVD national grievance and what happened with that but he may have missed the post.

    We were told that my center is supposed to get 62 of them alone. We’re one of just 3 centers in my building. Here’s the thing, they were first created to supposedly deliver rural out of the way deliveries. Well my building has maybe 8 total extended routes. The other 250 are all business/residential routes “in town”. Typical UPS always exploiting this contractual BS. FYI.....out of all the ones they used last year only 3 or 4 actually stuck it out till the end.

    We’ve had this for two years now. So much extra time spent dealing with followups...
