    I'm sick and tired of it. Decades of ever increasing profitability. Massive tax subsides from Uncle Sam. And a yet somehow UPS continues to disrespect the very workers that got them to the top. So if this contract passes I will become the Ralph Nader of the delivery industry. I am going to leverage every single Labor Law I can. I will insist on OSHA inspections and demand they verify that UPS is properly reporting injuries. Because if our union can't or won't fight then we have too.

    Until they lighten up his route for a couple months and put the target on someone else's back.

    It really doesn't work like that, if your game is tight.
    Actually, it works to the contrary.

    True, but most people who think their game is tight, are wrong.

    @Indecisi0n will cover it up for me. I gave him a sloppy blind lumberjack last night or as we call it a SBJ.

    How about you start with taking your 1-hr lunch and approved break? Or just walk into your center manager's office and ask to review the entire OSHA 300 log. It's up to you.

    Well like any game you win some, you lose some. A lot of people lost their lives fighting for better labor rights. Each sacrifice led to us having a chance to fight back today.

    Maybe. Went a few rounds battling UPS to get the doctor of my choice and temp disability after an injure earlier this year. Union "rep" sounded a bit like you. Said I wouldn't get to see the doc I wanted or get retroactive disability. I got both.

    No one is intimidated by one guy. But corporations are scared to :censored2:ing death Americans will wake up and begin using democracy to fight back. Citi Bank's board said as much back in 2007 or '08.

    Already started. Demanded UPS obey California Workers Compensation Laws when I was fighting for temp. Disability. Company said I had to go use a company doc. Union said I had to use a company doc. I said they had to follow the law. They agreed. Lol.
