Can the Union really save your job??
Yes. No. Maybe.
Could you be a little more specific?
Depends on what you did.......
Off the top of my head, can only think of a few "slamdunk" reasons for termination. Stealing and physically fighting. And if you are a driver, showing up drunk. Numerous occasions of non drivers showing up toasted and sent home for "lack of production".
Thats sort of like asking if a doctor can really save your life.
I've seen it happen. So.....yes.
What did you do ???
Does a bear ship in the woods?
Is the Pope Catholic?
Yes they can, I've been in the office with drivers the company had dead to wrong, they admitted they did something wrong, they got a suspense. Yes they did get there jobs back.
The union simply keeps you from having to have any accountability, and integrity for yourself. Some people like that. It is next to impossible to lose your job at UPS.
Never test it
My dad was a steward for years(not at UPS) and when I made senoirity he told me.... show up every day, don't steal, don't do drugs, and don't take a swing at anybody and you are al set. He spoke the truth.
You still work there.
