HR hotline was called. He's still there.
I've said things like that outside of work when I'm angry. He's probably just venting.
Venting or not, it is unprofessional and cannot be excused or so easily dismissed.
He may have to go to anger management classes or something else that the hourly will never know about. Just because you don't see any changes in routine or anything, doesn't mean he isn't getting help. I would doubt that this would go unattended too with what happened in Al, and the liability UPS would face if he did snapped, and killed some people.
Let an hourly do that and they will quickly be escorted out the building. But if a center manager says it it's OK? I don't think so.
I speak my mind too much sometimes but that is one thing I have NEVER said.
The driver in Birmingham was just venting too.
A police report was filed and at the prosecutor's office. The company knows of his past rage issues and the police report as well.
He's still there.
No, the driver in Birmingham murdered two people before killing himself. Big difference.
It is not ok, but hourlies and management are not under the same rules.
The "big difference" is three seconds away.
We'd be out of service in seconds.
The guy was walked out, went home, slept on it, went in to work the next with the clear intent of exacting revenge.
Management lies about everything ... the redness will drain from his/her face and he/she will go back to their administrative tasks.
I love Double Standards!!!
How do you know, Einstein?
You don't work in our building with this freak.
All of UPS fury would be unleashed on an hourly for that statement.
Don't psychoanalyze our situation without a degree.
Venting is what I did about 6 months or so ago when I was frustrated about having to come back for late air and being given extra work at the same time. The center manager, shop steward and I had a very one-sided chat the next morning.
You called the cops and the ethics hotline. Other than taking care of yourself, what else can you do?
Did you tell them you were going to kill someone?!
It's not what I CAN DO the issue is what is the company going to do.
Get the point yet?
It's not healthy to hold it in.
