    Some are 3x. I believe local 25 is.

    But yeah I've never heard of someone paying almost 5x their hourly rate.

    I think the OP has a distorted view of the union and it's purpose at ups.the union cannot tell ups how to run its can only tell ups how to comply with the cba.the OP seems to believe these are one in the same but are the company can staff there operations with as few employees as they see fit so long as no supervisors work.if they say load 10 cars then that is the instructions,use all methods and work safely that's it.if I load ten or one car I can only load one package at a time.

    Must be 251 than.

    The point is some areas are higher then 2.5x but again I've never heard of 4.8x the hourly rate.

    Local 25 dues are fixed rates. I forget what PT is (maybe 55?) and FT is 71, which is less than 2x hourly rate of rpcd

    Slow down and stop the belt if need be. Pretty simple

    I’m not sure what hub you folks worked in, but stooping the belt for a non-emergency is a class A felony at UPS. I’m learning many of you never preloaded, you just like to jibber-jab on forums. The rest of you clowns, why would I make up my union due fees? You people are idiots. We have flat rate.

    Don't be so mean. Jack is management material.

    Not trying to be mean. If I was this upset with a job, especially one that I haven't been doing for long. I'd leave.

    On Saturdays for me im on belt to car. Its me and another guy one on each side for like 12 cars each side? The rest of the slides they have pick off and just let it build up like someone is there to load it, leaving a cluster F for the guys on Monday.

    They have to choose between letting you turn the belt off or letting packages blow by you. Not your problem. Walk at a normal pace, follow all methods. If you aren’t wrapped up in time, that is not your fault. Force them to hire more people, or pay supervisor working grievances, or have the sort finish too late every day.

    If you were able to do 15 trucks at once, they would give you a 16th.

    I shut off the belt plenty of times in my preload days. Did sups get mad? You bet. Did I care? Nope.

    I think I held the record. I would see how many times I could shut it off in 10 minute span. I think I made many a preload managers quit or get fired.

    UPS offered them a job for $13/hr. UPS already agreed with union that wage.
