Rumor has it a huge announcement in 2 weeks about management, anyone have a clue what this is about?
You're all wrong! I work just up the street from Glenlake so I always get all the skinny. So here's the deal. Board meetings have been just aweful of late. Even Eskew has complained it's so hard to stay awake and keep interested. I told Mike about this forum and how he could get a pulse of the workforce here and he took me up on it. In doing so, he also relaized within this forum was the answer to spice up the board meeting too.Kentucky UPSer said:Rumor has it a huge announcement in 2 weeks about management, anyone have a clue what this is about?
OH no no no. Lets take this soap opera all the way to the end. Our software emails the customer when the package is shipped. Our customers can track the package and see where it is at any given time. Now with PAS making delivery so easy those packages practically deliver theirselves its only natural to assume that we will soon eliminate the preloader, preload sup,delivery sup, center manager and yes even the driver by opening up self service aisles at your local ups. Hell your home depot thinks they can do it why not UPS?dannyboy said:Really there 9.5? With PAS, center managers are not needed? I could make the point that the delivery sups are also not needed. The part time preload sups can read those same emails and make all the additonal changes to the dispatch before most delivery sups are even out of bed.
Never work. PAS would have packages going to the wrong asile. Or, at the last minute an asile would be "cut" but all the packages wouldn't get moved. Another problem, PAS would say the asile number wasn't valid and charge an asile correction fee.sendagain said:Well why not just open warehouses in cities and have the packages set out in aisles like Walmart? You could notify the customer when their packages arrived, have the facility open about 18 hours a day and let them come down and pick up their stuff.
Don't see many takers unless full medical is offered. One catastrophic illness can wipe out a lot of dollars.outta hours said:The word here from my sup. friends( center mgr., hub mgr., & an on road sup.) is UPS is doing away with the pension plan for it's managers. They will be offered a cash buyout equal to about 1/2 the amount they have accumulated to date. The understanding is they will have to leave the company to do so. The proposed date is next Sept. The scoop is many more will take the buyout than anticipated.
