    It does leave a sour taste in your mouth.

    Fitbit App :) Vote! We all agree everybody should vote

    Georgia or New Mexico.

    Look at all the employees in the back ground going to work who didn't go to the meeting.

    Count up that crowd. Looks huge doesn't it. Yet, now think... think if the strike was today. You don't believe UPS can replace only that small amount of folks at a Hub?

    Listen, this new language is suppose to take care of or at least help with grievances. If nothing changes after the Yes vote. Then it's a breach of contract by UPS and illegal.

    A lot of beards and big bellies. These just Feeder drivers?

    That D.B. Cooper guy in the back in the shades and black back pack. He's Scabbing on us if a work stoppage occurs. Look at him. You can spot the Scabs a mile away and UPS centers will be jammed packed with crossers.

    Gonna Suck if this goes down. Truth hurts.

    You sound bitter about management’s double standard practices while you were here. Maybe that’s soured your outlook.

    I forgot you even replied to my comment. But to answer you. No not really.

    Actually I was never there.
    I was going by what I have seen in the past.

    In public, everyone says they are voting NO
    When they vote in private, over half vote YES.

    Same way it was in Arkansas with Bill Clinton.
    You can't find anyone that will admit they voted for Clinton but over half the state voted for him.

    That’s a lot of grievances.

    Are you in that picture ?

    1000 grievances.... that are a year old.

    There is basically one local in the state that represents UPS. Remember it’s a right to work state. Their executive board is pretty good, but you aren’t exactly dealing with the best of the best there. Their backlog of grievances is partly to do with such a large geographical area.

    Yesterday at the two man meeting one of their agents got up to the mic and talked. He mentioned that they had about 500 backlogged grievances.

    Curious as to why you don’t believe me, @728ups can corroborate what was said. Not sure why you’re calling me a liar, call the hall and ask yourself if you don’t believe what you’re seeing.

    Glad you can back up the claim as well, anyone who’s in this local knows what’s going on.

    Wanna take a friendly wager that more than half will vote no in our local?

  20. I haven't heard any positive words from my fellow drivers either.
