    UPS fires 20 Maspeth workers for February walkout - Forum News Group

    The United Parcel Service provided 20 Maspeth employees with pink slips this week with potentially more to come, the company said.

    “We have implemented the release of a group of employees that participated in the Feb. 26 walkout,” a spokesman for UPS said in a statement. “Our first priority is to maintain orderly delivery operations and we chose to release 20 employees in order to minimize the chance of any impact on customer commitments. The misconduct on Feb. 26 was serious and the company is taking contractually appropriate actions to address those employees involved in the unauthorized work stoppage.”

    A source who is familiar with the mass terminations said there were several more to come this week for the same reasons as stated by the company.

    Come on, everyone knows you can not just walk off the job at UPS!! That is job abandonment, you lose all rights and do not have a leg to stand on. I can not believe the Union official condoned this. There is a grievance procedure that all union employees know they have to follow. Sorry guys but you do not have a leg to stand on!!
