    I just heard that at Corporate the involuntary downsizing is starting. People are getting the boot with a buyout similar to the VRP.

    What's the selection process of who is impacted? Is each department specific? Change is in the wind, please share!

    At least 100 hundred IT employees from all over the country were laid off this week. They say they’ll open some of the jobs in Alpharetta, GA and laid off employees can apply for them (yes, apply for your own job) but who knows if they really will. 25 years with this company and I get a phone call telling me I’ll be unemployed October 15th.

    RTS is a UPS Operations term - it stands for Return to Sender.

    It is not a work group.

    The rumor is that the Worldship team in MD has been told their jobs are eliminated and they have till October to find jobs. If not, they will get 3 months severance. Can anyone verify? does anyone know the makeup of that team? Is it true that the jobs have been outsourced to India? what a legacy our CEO is leaving behind. Shocking...If this is true, Good IT people should vacate quickly while the market is extremely hot. Unbelievable. They have may options to not hurt partners by offering better package and lower the age in IT. Instead, they go after the hard working people. Folks enjoy not be fooled with the sweet talk, be careful. Disheartened and dismayed for what is happening. I hope this is wrong as I love the good old UPS and hate to see this destruction...
