We have a new center manager in our building. He has been hammering production. Our time studied almost all lost about 1/2 to an 1 hour basically overnight causing a lot of drivers to be an hour or more over. The stops per hour are the same or up in almost all cases. Coincidentally the part-time pas edd supervisor has just been promoted to full time. One driver got a warning notice and now a 3 day working suspension(whatever that is) The union is not any help with preventing this. The Local told our steward that the union does not acknowledge production standards but UPS can and does. What the heck does that mean? I believe there is a driver in our local facing termination for production. The union is supposed to prevent this; not just react to it after suspensions or terminations.
