Why do you guys fall for crap like this? I have not seen these sites because I don't have too because they have no merit. How do I know? I just remind myself of the Morgan Stanley customer survey where the customer ranked UPS above FedEx.
This is a UPSER's wife speaking. I may not agree with a lot that the company does, but I am thankful for the great paycheck my husband brings home and for the outstanding benefits we have. Go ahead and ask your friends if there insurance is free and how there benefits are. You will be very surprised how crappy their insurance is. I think that the union is a bunch of windbags in fancy cars. Do you think they will take $50.00 a week pay while the employees walk the picket. Come on people, please do not strike. Things could be really crappy: you could be out of a job.
It's sad but it seems the union is more interested in gaining more members than taking care of the ones it has. Judging by the comments from Hoffa, he is about to price UPS out of the package business. All the raises, pension increases, etc would be paid by the customer and if they can get their packages delivered less expensively, that's what they will do. With non-union carriers. UPS will survive as a much smaller company as a customs broker, bank, freight forwarder, logistics company, and an international carrier but the teamsters will vanish. As I have said before, the contract may be great but the jobs will gradually disappear. Where are the bricklayers? Lath and plasterers? Flight engineers? Railway brakemen? Plumbers?
Dockworkers? They all had great contracts but wound up with no jobs.
Hoffa wants "all the golden eggs" so what is left to buy new package cars? Aircraft? Operating rights? Computers? Lawyers to keep the company strong? Prospective shareholders to buy the stock? The company will NEVER agree to some of the things he is asking for. Say goodbye to many jobs.
Yep UPS Sucks and his one man mission of hate. By the way sucker Radio Shack came back to UPS last week because Fedex the viable alternative to UPS couldn't get radio shacks packages to CA delivered in less than two weeks. Just tires with locations throughout the US is also on thier way back because the great Fedex let one of thier loads sit for two days at the customer location.

Hmmm..Could you please elaborate on this tieguy? The Radioshack on my route is still using Fedex Ground exclusively. I was under the impression that this was a descision made by the individual store managers, not the parent company.
