First of the 18 rejected supplements have been accepted by 65-35 margin. It was basically the same as was rejected months ago.
I think a lot of the 'yes' folks that did not vote the first time around voted this time.
I guess people are missing their raises.
Dropping spousal benefits is a direct result of ACA and going public. The later of which is putting pressure on UPS to make record profits every year, and how do they do that, use every excuse they can to cut what they can.
Kind of makes you want to be in the union, where they can't make the decree, and you've got to abide.
What monies are you referring to?
Staples should have informed you that brokerage and tax charges are not in the shipping charges. UPS does not know what the destination countries customs will put on each package. Just guessing that this is what you are referring to.
Let's not let the truth get in the way. Final numbers are not in yet, since Indy has not been counted, due to ballot mishap. Passage is up by about 5000 votes on national, so it will pass, with most supplements and riders being rejected.
I would hope they are already back at the table, but don't know for sure. A lot of things to iron out.
What center do you work at, because at my center, we don't make close to $37/hr, don't get stock, either. I would almost feel jilted, if I thought you drove for UPS and knew that of which you speak.
No strike vote has happened to my knowledge. A strike vote is usually initiated if progress is not being made on the contract, and the parties are not acting in good faith, which obviously has not happened since a tentative agreement was made
I don't think I've met anyone who has admitted to have voted 'yes' on a contract, but they still all pass. When it comes time to actually put pen to paper, people feel differently.
I've turned mine in week and a half ago.
There has been rumblings at my center to about a fixed vote as well. Supposedly a third party is in charge of counting the votes, which will probably take longer this year because of all the missteps in the ballots itself.
I do wonder what an average margin of acceptance on previous contracts were, and what the margin will be on this one. Don't like a lot of things in contract, but confident it will pass.
I have no doubt that the package contract will pass, the freight, not so sure about.
For all the hype for this contract, it does not measure up to that hype. I wont go into the reasons, because this is not that message board.
This contract will pass because most voters will not even read the contract, and will only read the mailings that we have gotten. If somehow this contract gets voted down, that does not mean that a strike will follow. It only means that the two sides will meet again, and hash out a better contract that could be accepted. A strike cannot be enacted without a strike vote, which I believe would only be done if UPS would not bargain in good faith, which won't happen since they already agreed on a contract.
And has earned every bit of it. If he is in the same pension as most, UPS only pays full for only 10 years, then it gets split, with majority paid by union, and only a small portion, maybe 6 years, that the company will have to pay for the rest of his life.
Hope he has a long and happy retirement.
I beleive he is talking about paying for insurance, which by the way will not happen, The union has said that they will walk away from early negotiations unless that is taken off the table.
Neither does the company. It is not all one sided, nobody wins in a strike, except the competition. Let's hope there is none. It is sad that a company that makes several billion dollars, thinks it is not making enough. I guess that is what you get when you get CEO from outside the company. Numbers outweigh the service element just about all the time in my center. I remember when businesses knew when and who their driver was, and approximant time he/she would come; now mgnt is chasing the good drivers out to other positions because of micro managing, added stops, increased pressure, unreasonable expectations created by, what center mgnt team says, mgnt several levels above them that are not even in the state.
With that statement, it is obvious that you have not done the job. Every job has intricacies that takes time to learn and master. What do you do for a living? I bet that sounds easy from the outside, as well. I bet I could do that with little training as well. Drivers are very well educated, most, I bet with degrees. So please keep your better-than-thou attitude to yourself.
