    The bathroom issue is an easy fix.


    ARTICLE 5. SANITARY CONDITIONS

    "The Employer agrees to maintain a clean, sanitary washroom having hot and cold running water with toilet facilities in all present and future buildings."

    No napkins in the break room ? You're on your own....

    This is absolutely incorrect. You dont want to do the work of 2 people?? Then dont. Work a normal pace, send in a message letting them know your not going to be able to finish. Stay out 14 hours bring the rest back at 11pm. Do that for a week, then file your 9.5 on Friday.

    I'm aware of the article,thanks anyways but without a $$$ penalty doubt anything gets done in the grievance procedure.

    You would almost think that part-time UPS employees did not get to vote on our contract. Largest group of apathetic non-voters that bitch when their pay or working conditions do not meet their approval. Unbelievable, too lazy to attend a Union meeting or send in a ballot once every 5 years. Today's younger generation expects everything to be served on the proverbial "silver platter".

    Actually, you may want to look in the mirror to find the "idiots" that "approved" a $13.00/hour starting wage by not becoming involved and/or voting.

    More pter bashing? Yawn. They are basically slaves, let's be honest. Temporary employees killing themselves for beans. Waste of time to bash/blame them for any contract issues. If you treat someone like crap 24/7, why would they go out of their way to care for the future of this company?

    Just because there isn't a monetary penalty attached, doesn't make it less effective.

    Same thing with the name tag issue.... easy win.



    Article 18

    "Notwithstanding the employee’s right to contact federal, state or local agencies, it is the recommendation of the committee that issues and concerns, regarding this Agreement, should first be brought before the National Safety and Health Committee."


    The contract language is there.... utilize the grievance procedure first.

    After that, anything else is fair game. (and bolsters your case)

    I wish I'd realized that before. I wouldn't have had to wait a year for hot water. Is there anything governing temperature? Going into summer and would love to see a fan on the line.

    Being, that it is national language....

    There aren't any specific temperature requirements, that I am aware of.

    A simple grievance should solve that problem.



    In the larger buildings, fans are in place.... depending on the work area.

    The company loves the safety committee.


    Start there.

    :biggrin:

    They kept on showing up for $10 and hour. They will continue to show up for $13, $14, $15 and 15.50
     
  17. Then you and I are in agreement. The Union failed. One could use your philosophy of every job, everywhere.
