For many years, we have been reminded that we are "unskilled labor" that is easily replaced. In fact, one of my favorite VPs once told me in a meeting that if we were unhappy with wages that "McDonalds was hiring". That pretty much sums up management's attitude toward us... just plug anyone into the seat and watch the productivity happen. Not so quick. If anything, DRA has proven that they cannot just plop someone in a vehicle and make it "happen". Is what we do "skilled" in the sense of a technician or similar job? No. But what makes us skilled is the level of productivity that is expected. This is even more true at UPS. It absolutely does take "skill" and a specific skill set to achieve 15.74 SPH or whatever the target goal for performance is for a particular route. DRA was supposed to allow "anyone" to do this, but most new hires and newer employees can only do about half of SPH. So, where does the other half of the SPH come from? S-K-I-L-L.
