    Why are we striking

    What happens if we go on strike ?

    What’s the process in all of this ?

    How do we get paid ?

    No, it's just a vote. Nothing to worry about...yet.

    Yes. Whatever you saw was just stating that the local unions representing UPS employees approved a strike vote by the members, us, which will happen later this month.

    If you're really worried, call your union hall. I wouldn't get stressed out about it yet though. Nobody wants a strike.

    It helps with our negotiatians. Can't go to the table without it or we'll be sucking on the nipple of UPS.

    Man I am so glad you started a thread to clear that up! I was literally sitting here right now thinking "Is this for show or for go?"

    The union representatives voted Tuesday, we will all get to vote at the end of the month. No need to panic yet, no one wants a strike....

    eats packages Anyone ever hear about "load charts"

    If you are working today, it means you missed the picket and became a scab.
    We hope the scent of hot dogs and warm beer guide you to safety.

    If we know it's all show, I'm pretty sure UPS knows it too. Things started clicking really quick after we gave the authorization to Carey. Let's see what happens now? Will they start getting serious, or yawn and go eat?
