We went live on Telematics yesterday, and this morning my sup took me aside to show me my report. He had a clipboard with various Mapquest maps of my delivery area, with colored lines denoting the route my package car took and times for every delivery and pickup I made. It showed 3 "incidents" of my package car moving with the bulkhead door open. 2 of them were prior to me leaving the building, which is due to the fact that I need to leave the engine running during pretrip to defrost the ice off of my windshield. The other one occured when I backed up to a dock out on route. The Telematics report shows how many miles were driven with the door open, which in my case was zero. It also showed 2 incidents of the vehicle moving without the seatbelt being buckled. Again, the total miles driven was zero. For 21 years I have been buckling the belt at the same time I start the wheels rolling, in one smooth motion, which can result as a "blip" on the telematics report if the buckle doesnt fully latch before the vehicle moves. I am working on developing a new routine to prevent this from happening. Old habits die hard. My sup told me I did pretty well compared to some of the other drivers on my center. I can see now how this is all going to play out. They cant use the report itself for any sort of disciplinary action, they have to actually go out and make observations, so a driver who shuts his door and wears his belt isnt going to have to worry about a couple of "blips" here and there. Its actually somewhat empowering to know that there will be a printout showing the exact route you followed. If you wind up with a bunch of misloads, or a wierd cut from EDD, you will be able to show your sup exactly what sort of impact it had on your route. The driver who is geting harassed over production can use this to his advantage, also. He can just shut his brain off, run the route 100% by trace according to EDD, and when he winds up backtracking and driving in circles he will have a handy visual aid that can show his management team just how screwed up their system really is. I'm OK with Telematics. The bottom line is that the vehicle belongs to UPS and they can put whatever gadgets they want to on it. I have never had any expectation of privacy in a package car, and I have always tried to do my job as though I was being watched anyway. For the driver with nothing to hide, its no big deal.
