Burn this whole thing into the ground
anyone read these from the teamster site. Ok, year around use of helpers, no part-time family healthcare for 5 years, among other nonsense. Anyone know why this was a 5 year contract instead of 6 or 7 year? How many drivers on here have 20 or more years to go with ups? I honestly do not think I will make it for one of the following reasons, I will get hurt, I will get fired, or ups will bust the union and drivers will be working for no pension, and making 12.00 an hour. Some say that ups has a business to run..ok, fine, but this company is so damn sneaky..theres no end to the possibilities this company could come up with to make it not even worth working here anymore.I really dont think ups can grasp the reality that drivers are the company and you get rid of the drivers, customers will never come back to ups. Thats another reason I have never figured out why mgt treats us like absolute crap, then wants sales leads. Its a no brainer....treat drivers with SOME respect, treat them as if they were fellow employees, not criminals, and not pack mules. Dont push safety first, then expect someone to finish a 11 hour route in 9 hours. Kindly ask them for leads, then step back and watch them come in. But at ups, its so much harder than it has to be.Its really a shame.
