I know a lot of the posters here do everything by the book. Full lunch, full break, not touching load till start time, walking, 3 points of contact, out of sight out of weather, sidewalks and drives, parking in the safest location, avoid backing by going around the block, follow EDD regardless of the knowledge we have in regards to traffic patterns, schools and such, break off to service pickups in the required 15 minute window and the list goes on. However I know a lot of drivers that will cut corners to get home a little earlier or whatever (myself included). But I think it is time we all STOP and do what we are contracted to do. Don't touch the load. Walk at a safe pace. Take the full lunch. Take the full break. Make sure to be square to bulk head door. Make sure the seat belt is fully engaged before moving. Look over left shoulder, left turn signal, left mirror. Lift with a slow steady motion. Check for shifting contents. Don't twist. 3 points of contact. Use the sidewalks and driveways. Break off to get to a pickup in the 15 minute window. Don't back, go around the block. Make sure the package is out of sight. Call for help with all packages over 70lbs. If you are a by the book driver, then try to get the one's who aren't to follow your lead. Show them how UPS wants us to pay 90 a week for health benefits. For me, I am done giving. I am done justifying my skipped lunch so I can get to my kids school play, I am done giving. I will give them what we are contracted to give. Not one ounce of effort above that. This is what the union should be preaching now. They should say 2 things. 1) We will not negotiate until health is off table. 2) Follow the contract and DOK to the T. On top of sending out leaflets with the health proposal, they should also be sending out all the things we are and are not contracted to do. Encourage every single teamster to do what is in the contract and nothing more. Rant over.
