Hi all- I've been at UPS for a year and a half...the first year as an unloader on preload, then I moved to address corrections/customer counter 6 months ago. 3 months ago I signed up for a saturday air driver job for a little extra money, and have been doing that, on top of my regular local sort shift, and school (I'm 22) for 2 months now. Saturday air has always been pretty easy for me and my boss told me a few weeks ago if I wasn't in school, he'd put me on as full time driver in a heartbeat. I'd been thinking about what he said, and decided to opt out of school this semester. Take a year off, a couple years, I don't know..but I'm sick of school enough and enjoy driving enough to do it full time for awhile. I waited until after peak to tell my boss this (I didn't want "in a heartbeat" to mean being placed in a full package car with 300 stops haha) and he basically told me I would be "next in line". There are 5-6 drivers at our center who are all nearing retirement, and one guy who I have a feeling will be getting laid off/fired soon for having 3 accidents since may (the only reason he's still on is because they needed him for peak)..so I'm guessing my time may be soon. sorry for the novel of a backstory, but I guess I'm just wondering what to expect. Delivering saturday air feels pretty natural to me - I delivered pizza and chinese food in this town for 2 years while in school, so I know it pretty well, and I always finish well before commit time..but there are always a couple drivers every day who come back to the center looking like they want to kill someone. Is it really stressful? I'm also really curious about my labor rights, and the union and all that stuff, because I feel like my ignorance has been used against me quite a few times in the last year and a half because I didn't know what I was entitled to as far as working hours and payrate are concerned. Granted, I never really cared myself how I was being used, but now that this is my main "thing" in life, I'd like to be as educated as possible. It seems like it's kind of every man for himself when it comes to getting what you're entitled to. Is there a place online I could get a copy of the contract? thanks in advance..this seems like a great place to go for everything concerning ups, and I hope I'm a welcome addition to the community!
