UPS’s industry-leading jobs in the spotlight - UPS

What’s new: Central Plains District President Darren Jones represented UPS as a panelist at the Business Case for Good Jobs roundtable Friday, May 13 in Washington, D.C.

Why it matters: Leading employers shared best practices to recruit and retain a strong workforce through job quality. In addition to UPS, retailer Eileen Fisher, employee-owned energy company Sustainergy and BA Auto Care joined U.S. Sec. of Labor Marty Walsh on stage.

Highlights of the event: Darren pointed toward UPS’s compensation as a major differentiator.

“We are able to create different pathways and different careers – a pathway to middle class,” he said. “If you come to work at UPS, you have an opportunity for a $100,000 a year job in a reasonable amount of time.”

Darren shared delivery drivers make $93,000 a year in wages with an additional $50,000 toward health, welfare and pension totaling about $143,000. Similarly, tractor-trailer drivers earn $110,000 in wages for a total of nearly $160,000.

Darren should tell the company to quit treating people like crap and it won't have to go looking for a new employees.

It must be said that no person who came to ups , gone thru the initial training and packet, was hired is substandard....poor management made them substandard......whats needed is a better class of management. with better training...not the idiotic graduated work load mentality.

Pretty accurate. with this info coming to light you guys and gals have no prayer for public support if you strike as we did in 97. Negotiate hard but don't strike.

This is one post from you I 100% agree with. There’s no way the public will sympathize with guys that make 100k a year crying about ups.

People should understand that these results have to be negotiated because if not negotiated, the company would spit out bare minimum. Just look at FedEx ground

I started in 1971 and am retired. The company was United Parcel Service and was private having a meaningful logo.....The company sold its soul when it went public, became UPS which means nothing and a new emblem which also means nothing....I long the way I worked on the local sort, preload , hub, drove brownies and lastly feeders.....a great company until the turn of the century when the greedy higher ups betrayed the tenets of the founding fathers.......UPS bears little is any semblance to United Parcel Service .
