Steward protecting drunk

Discussion in 'UPS Union Issues' started by Molon Labe Forever, Jan 4, 2020.


Are Unions ethical?

  1. Yes, initiating violence is how we roll

  2. Yes, blackmailing managment is okay

  3. No, violating the non aggression principle is never acceptable

    Where one works is completely voluntary. Nobody is forcing others to work.

    Government is compulsory, no way around it that government is the gun in the room. The violent history of unions is surely not voluntary for those on the bad end of the unionists stick as well.

    One can be against both simultaneously. Unless you truly believe in false paradigms.

    Don’t worry so much about this.... the company will solve the issue by making the drunk a FT sup on the preload.

    It's a hollow notion of freedom to ignore the exploitative and at times disciplinary character of the 'invisible hand'. You're partly correct: no one in particular induces us to work here or there, but nevertheless those of us without much, if any, capital are dependent on selling our ability to work for a wage. I think there can be little doubt that compulsory schooling in childhood goes a long way to adapting us to the tedious rhythms and other-directed means and ends of wage labor. Not to mention, what first generations perceived and reacted to as a hostile threat becomes accepted as 'the way it's always been', e.g., a perfected state of dependency.

    It's a classic case of missing the forest for the trees. The market is a collective social force.

    What's his supervisor doing allowing him to come in drunk?

    You are a low skilled day laborer, learn to lighten up and enjoy the :censored2: show that is UPS as a part timer.

    Have you reached out and tried to make friends with this fellow employee. Maybe a gift such as one of those hats that holds 2 cans of beer with straws so he can continue to work hands free. May go a long way in your relationship with the employee.

    Your not a steward or a supervisor. Mind your business and do your job.

    How about no. When a dude causes so many problems for so many and the steward nor the supervisor do anything about it. What else can one do but point out the fact that the system is utterly broken?

    If the system is broken, you could always quit and find a different system to work under.

    Yeah, I could. I start a new position in the company soon anyways.

    So far the drunk hasn't been coming in drunk for the past 2 days. He actually got a haircut and a shave, and doesn't smell like the guy on the floor after a barroom brawl anymore, and he stopped talking so damn much.

    The confirmation number I entered gave me a message that the "investigation" will take 30 days... This fool should have been canned long BEFORE he started paying the mafiosos their protection money...

    You need to relax and mind your business. You getting caught up in other people’s business at work is just going to get you lobbed into the mess. Just put your ear buds in and unload the trailer.

    You know there has also been plenty of violence against union workers by the companies they work for

    Evidently the "fool" is liked better than you. When they keep a "drunk" and you too looks like they keep anyone.
