    Is it true that a driver needs to go through "progressive discipline" before he/she can be terminated for a non-cardinal offense? If UPS management terminates an employee who commits a non-cardinal offense, isn't that a breach of the UPS/Teamster contract? Shouldn't UPS be held liable for the breach of contract?

    If fired for a non-cardinal offense, it is otherwise known of as a short, paid vacation. Other than that, what the guys above said.

    Drivers are held liable thats what progressive discipline does. When the company breach the UPS/Teamster contract the union doesn't go on strike, but it would solve the 9.5 problem.

    I believe they take hours worked by the driver that does your route, and they pay you that
