    UPS accused of banning drivers' prayer meetings, claims there's a 'misunderstanding' - Christian Post

    The United Parcel Service — better known by its initials UPS — is being accused of banning drivers at a shipping center from holding prayer meetings before their shifts. However, the shipping giant contends that a “misunderstanding” has occurred.

    The Christian conservative legal nonprofit Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to UPS’ general counsel last week asking that employees at a shipping center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, be allowed to hold prayer meetings on UPS property.

    According to the letter, about 40 drivers began gathering every morning in the UPS parking lot for prayer meetings last July before their 9:15 a.m. shifts.
