    Ok so after two years of unloading I was starting to break down. I had things going on outside of work to add to the stress. Anyways after 2 and a half hours I was just like "F it I'm done." I then got into an argument with management about how I'm disrespecting my full time if I leave early and how I didn't finish the job. I told him it was not an issue of respect for anybody and that I just finished my truck. I was fed up and he just told me to go ahead and quit and to throw my ID in the trash. So I threw it in the trash, clocked out, and left. My only question is do I still get paid for my unused vacation for next month?
    Thank you.

    Okay thank you, and I hate it ended the way it did, but I don't hate the fact I'm done with that place.

    Management can make anyone more stressed with the little quirks they give employees. Frustrating it sure can be. As they say, life is to short to be miserable all the time. So in your heart if you think you did the right choice, then right on! keep it strong. =D

    Uh, you might want to check into Kleinsters background before heaping the praise on his savvy job advice. He wasn`t able to be a man and walk out on his own. He had to have help.

    I am very sorry you are feeling stress in your life.

    I hope I don't trouble you with this question.

    What do you think of work conditions and culture at UPS?

    I walked out of a job after 14 years. No regrets either, for doing so.
    Sometimes, enough is enough.
    I never went to Kindergarten, and sure don't need it anywhere else !

    Before that, I actually quit an 8 year job, with given 4 weeks notice, though.

    It may or may not be true, but IMO....probably 50% of hourlies or greater agree with the OP. Maybe "mgmt" too ;)

    Yes, because you earned the week already.

    Can he/she still get a withdrawral card? I'm guessing yes...

    Raven may also be entitled to any unused Sick Days as well. Check the appropriate Supplement.

    And definately get a 50-cent Withdrawal Card from the Local. It will save you from back dues and initiation fees if you ever get another Teamster job.

    Two years of unloading. At 8 hours a day, that's roughly 200 feet of trailer a day. A thousand feet a week. And over two years time, you have unloaded an imaginary trailer equal to the length of a 26 mile marathon. And that my friend, is something to be very proud of. And something UPS can never take away from you. Good luck my friend. And thank you for all your hard work.
