    Good point.
    I didn’t know that. PVD seems like such a blatant violation of the contract.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    My predictions for next summer:
    UPS will offer the "super uniforms" to be rationed out like DR bags during peak. Anyone who has a "thermal event" is simply not following instructions in their cool solutions training. UPS is happy, OSHA disappears for a couple more years.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Yep. But the more common temperature control is the more likely it becomes for us

    Our union and management should start using the WetBulb Globe Temperature to determine how unsafe working conditions are during the hottest part of summer.

    Forget the AC in the Cab
    UPS has got to vent the cargo area
    Lack of training on pre load makes for more time in the back looking
    Where I am, the back can get up to 140 during the summer

    The contract language could have added a section on reducing workload when the temperature / heat index / etc. is above (or below) a certain point. I agree that this contract was so pathetic - even to start off on negotiations. We didn't even try to fight for better working conditions inside the hub or out on road for our members.

    My experience has shown me most employees justify, condone, and contribute to the poor working conditions and culture at UPS.

    The self centered unionism that so often pervades UPS can pretty much be summed up with the catch phrase “Show me the money”.

    Many at UPS as well as here on the BC, make working conditions a sad joke on Corporate but actually many time it is more a reflection of the weakness, cowardice and self centered ness of today’s working man.

    It must start with the employee. The employee must stand up for the right to work safely, by following UPS Safety Training and methods.

    If the employee is low level management, these employees must stand up for the right to have their workers follow UPS Safety Training and they must also stand up for the right of their employees to follow UPS Safety Training and methods.
