    I’ve been working as a package handler for a couple months now and I always vape while I’m unloading trucks/cans. Yesterday a dude I work with told me he heard that if a supervisor sees you vape in a truck you get fired on the spot. Is this true ? I’ve never been caught by a supervisor but I always assumed it would be more like a “hey you can’t do that” not immediate termination the first offense

    They'll terminate you, then terminate your mother.

    It will not be immediately termination but if your building has a no smoking/vaping policy then you will be disciplined.

    I'd love to see UPS adopt a zero-tolerance policy on smoking/vaping anywhere on company property or in UPS vehicles. Termination for a 1st offense. Kill yourself with your nasty habit somewhere else, buddy.

    I saw an elderly guy out for a walk the other day... while smoking a cigar. That looked dumb too.

    Vaping is the coolest! Pineapple cherry flavored mist that turns your lungs to crystal! The best!

    Most places have banned vaping in enclosed workspaces and bars and restaurants.
    you may not be protected from termination if you are committing a crime.

    Here in Iowa, the state passed a law where you can't smoke in any business except when you are gambling in the casino. We have signs in all our cars that tell us we can't smoke while driving as its a company vehicle.
