PVD'S B. Lower paid drivers C. Weekend work Sat - Sunday. 1. Before you all flame me check out Logistics Management.com go to the article entitled "Teamsters in heated talks with UPS. Its Dated Feburary 12th 2018. Paragraph 13 i believe. 2. Your going to tell me PVD'S dont exist in our contract and your Right! However, thats my point they dont exist in the 2013 - 2018 Contract either, yet UPS has used them for at least 2 peaks. Since they arent prohibited in the new contract... how is it you think UPS wont continue to use them. Wrap up UPS created the conditions that wr have and then wrote the solution to the problem IS that what is in your interests let alone your best interests. Ps Logistics Management is only one of four sources ive found that say the same information .
