    The important thing to remember as a union employee, is that you are always guilty.....until proven innocent.

    wide load Starting wage is a waste of time.

    The steps of discipline are:
    1. Verbal Humiliation
    2. Soft Touch / Tickle
    3. Spanking / Whipping
    4. Choking / Suffocation

    4 working terms, and then you get fired. Get your job back. 4 more working terms. And then they forget you were ever in trouble.

    Yes, hes an
    Think of it this way, if you never worked at UPS you would understand the concepts of manipulation and deceit, you just wouldnt understand the exact way and context in which we deal with those things every day

    Not guaranteed in my supplement that way but the Local always makes them consistent with what has been done in the past. Also, depends on the offense. If its attendance, sounds about right.
