I currently work AM preload for the UPS Vancouver operation. My question is about preload contract obligation and the fields the contract covers. In our center there is no preloader shop steward, and some how I think that we're getting screwed in some way. I don't much trust our supervisor because he has bull****ted in the past. This envolves a new routine recently added to the preload which requires the scanning of tracking labels of the packages the preloader loads, and as well as the other packages that pass on the belt. Just 2 months earlier some contract people were hired for this position, but now it seems to have fallen on us. I don't understand why this is something that they have slapped on us, and the only information that I have about the use of these scans is for the manager to have numbers to give when on conference call with Toronto. Main management has never called a PCM to address this, and I feel that its the preload supervisor passing on his job to us. He is not very good at managing his resources and is somewhat lazy. This is hard to do when its really busy and you have more then 3 cars to load. We're not PAS enabled yet so I don't understand where this has come from and why.
