    I could be wrong, but I don’t see this Union getting tough with UPS, ever. Does not matter who is in Office. Dues from Brown are the only thing keeping this Union afloat. No one is going to go after the Golden Goose...

    The Union can't strike over just anything, like not getting a pay raise that was not negotiated in the contract.

    What did you call it? A sick out strike?

    Again, you are clueless.

    Only because the Company agreed to negotiate. And they only did this to appease the public's perception of them.

    If the Company refused to negotiate over COVID-19, the Union could not strike over it.

    The Company is not negotiating a pay raise, and they don't have to. And the Union cannot strike over it.

    Again, you are clueless.

    Why should he? Nobody at UPS is laid off. We are all still working.

    The CEO's that forfeited their pay did so because most of their employees at their Companies were laid off and not working, a symbolic gesture.

    If we're still getting paid, why shouldn't Hoffa?

    If we were all laid off, I might agree with you, somewhat.

    Workers can strike anytime! You mean UPS agreed to negotiate and the Union got us nothing? Another Union fail. Hoffa doesn’t work for UPS. You’re management.

    You are actually correct. Workers can strike at anytime...if they want to lose their jobs.

    Here, let me help you out.

    The Right to Strike | National Labor Relations Board

    The Union got us 10 paid days if we need to quarantine. UPS would not have given us this out of the goodness of their hearts.

    No, but the majority of the companies that Hoffa represents are still working and drawing a paycheck. So why should he give up his? That's similar to asking the CEO of UPS to give up his salary. Why?

    I see countless people like you here that are all the same. If you get called out, and proved that you are wrong, or if someone else doesn't agree with your opinion, your response is always, "you're management."

    Grow up and grow a pair.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    He'll let you know at 5:18 am EST like clockwork. Maybe 5:19 if he sleeps in on Saturday.

    When word got out how much a full time driver makes (and is soon to get another raise) I doubt their would be much sympathy for a strike now. Then again you either strike or don't strike and say the hell with what the public thinks.

    ABSOLUTELY NOT

    Sure seems to be a lot of tough talk here lately. I would imagine most of it is by members who voted yes on the last contract (or didn't vote at all).

    I really wish that I could "sleep in" until at least 6 or 7.

    Wrong :))

    People were striking in the Great Depression rod.

    I didn't say not to strike. I said you wouldn't get much public sympathy. Striking can be a Great tool in labor negotiations. Just don't think the public will always be on your side. In the Depression people freezing to death had no sympathy for striking coal miners. We were lucky in the fact that most people either were on our side or plain just didn't give a rats butt if we were on strike the 2 times I went through it. Times are different now--(you guys tell me that all the time.) :-)
