These workers get special treatment because they are unionized in the first place. Of course they work hard they make 80k a year delivering packages. How much does a Fed Ex driver make? Walk off your job in a non union environment you can bet your going to get fired, why should it be any different because your unionized? Play by the rules.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
you should prob. educate yourself a little more before you post a response like that. It is called a "self managed account."
The older drivers that made UPS what it is are being replaced with drivers that are doing it better with changing tech. The tech that ultimately allows for the company to easily keep tract. What a driver is doing and make it safer and more productive.
I think UPS has positioned itself in a way since 97, to make it very hard for the union to strike. Most rolled their thrift into UPS stock before going public, they dont want to see that lost. PAS now allows for anyone to go into a job with little to no knowledge. There are more and more casuals on the road and doing the same job as a max rate employee for a fraction of the pay and doing just as well. I think the union needs to start admitting that they can be replaced a little easier than before. Most WILL pay for their benefits if made too. Their are people willing to take their jobs.
I sold as well @ 5 even. Hoping to get in under 5 again, for some reason not so confident it will dip this time around.

"Washington will catch a lot of the attention, as Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner testifies before the Senate Budget committee at 10 a.m. on President Obama's 2010 budget. But perhaps even more closely watched will be the hearing on mark-to-market accounting, conducted by the House Subcommittee on Capital Markets, also at 10 a.m."
