  2. My contribution to the union is $63.00 a month. $200.00 initiation before the monthly payments. No I didn’t show up to work, only an idiot would. I’m paying a union to do everything you’ve stated. Again, I don’t pay people so I have to work. You sound like the Big Union fool and his bfs I’ve gotta get a package and my trip is cut.

    You sound like someone, that thinks the Union is some kind of babysitting service.

    Grow up, and act like a man. If you don't know what to do.... I'll help you.

  7. The Union isn’t a baby sitting service, however they should be around more than they are. The union does as little as possible. You’re hardly a man, just a big loudmouth. There’s nothing you could teach me...chump!
     
  8. How many union meetings have you been to?

    Funny....

    You started a thread, because you don't know what the contract says.



    That question will end a conversation every time.

    I must say when I first started I was schooled and mentored by some of the best ... I tried 2 pass that on as they all retired .... deaf ears 2 say the least
     
  15. The only time these newbies wanna get involved with the union is when they get into trouble.

    On the other side of the coin ...newer sups and CMs ....don’t have that drive 2 fire workers ...from what I have seen at least .... instead of sticking the knife in workers they go 2 bat for them ... some of the higher ups push a firing and they can’t do anything but did try

    It's the kinder, gentler, and more forgiving UPS.

    :biggrin:


    There are very few "old school" management people left.

    And, what would be their motivation ? They aren't partners anymore.



    Anyone less than a Region status.... is just another cog in the machine.

    U are a Union member. U need to do something about it. Grab your steward, tell him you want to file and ask for help on how to write out the grievance.


    Ups tries to keep the stewards out. So unless you reach out to your steward, he or she probably has no idea what's going on.


    For example. All 5 drivers around me yesterday received threatening messages on their diads about getting in under 9.5 hours. I received a message asking nicely asking if I needed help to be in under 9.5. Without a phone call from the other drivers, I would have no idea my supervisor violated the contract.

    wide load Starting wage is a waste of time.

    In NE a change in start times need to be posted on a Monday to become affective the following Monday.
