    Pretty soon we will be paying Fred for the privilege of delivering his SatanPaks. UPSers don't know how good they've got it.

    Fat greedy federal employee unions.
    Fat greedy teacher and state unions.

    I got no problem with what you guys make. You earn every dollar. We on the other hand work just as hard but on the average make half as much from a company that makes huge profits as well. Even when the economy was in a freefall express still turned a good profit. My problem lies with some who " got theirs" but feel we should be happy with what we get. And if ups can afford to pay you guys the way they do and still turn a huge profit then their is no reason FedEx can't do the same.

    I support the IBT 100% too..

    I'm just sick of reading all the self proclaimed Right wing leaning posts on their side of the forum.

    Let them reap what they sow...........

    Become an ISP if you believe in the unregulated capitalist BS you spew and quit the evil union

    No but we do work harder than Ground contractors. Don't see you returning some of your money to reflect how hard you work.

    Telematics Van.... don't you know???....

    They can't put their "package car" in reverse 100 feet after they make their last right hand turn within 50 feet of the last crosswalk on the left hand side of the street after they pre record the bulk delivery before running their lunch for the 9.5.....

    The Pressure!!

    Thank Goodness for the IBT or how absurd could the rules get!!??

    For the ignorant ground folks. We don't just get in our trucks and drive. We are couriers/ handlers/ ramp agents/ ctv drivers, etc. You don't have a clue as to how express operates. Some areas express drivers are on the road just as long as ups drivers. And yes we do work just as hard.
