Every EEOC complaint I have been involved with has been because we had to follow the union rules in regard to seniority. If you create a job for someone with a disability a higher senior person has the right to bid on it.
Back in the 80's when I was an unload sup. I was working with a new employee unloading a pickup trailer told me he previously worked for the company. I asked what did you do there? Change the meter sticker from 1.15 to 11.15 with a ink pen. After investigating sure enough that was their practice. Accounting back billed them for somewhere around 50K
(Casey notice the correct usage of There and Their and I didn't have to cooperate with anyone to get a number)
Its called dimensional pricing. If the weight of the box isn't proportional to the size, aka too much packing. You are charged based on the weight for that size box should be. Weight rarely comes into play in transportation costs but capacity of a trailer/airplane sure does
Wonder how much liability is out there for managers that have been fired for integrity issues that are now common practice
I see a high number of USPS trucks buzzing the neighborhood. Smaller capacity vehicles designed for letters not boxes so they probably make multiple trips to the local PO to reload. Not sure if they are last mile or their own pick up to delivery. The UPS guy comes though about 2-3 hours earlier than normal with his helper and P12 loaded to the gills and likely logs the same hours just more stops. Probably the more efficient mode of delivery. But then again USPS doesn't have to make a profit.
who made you the English professor.
Lose not loose
Amazon ships mostly light weight packages very little profit on them lots of little money in servicing them , the post office charges less , they have never thought of how to make money that is why they loose millions yearly THAT is how the government works
Not even a close. too much debt, pension liability and old equipment. We learned an expensive lesson with overnite.
History shows Good news = stock goes down. bad news = stock goes down. See if the new CEO give a more positive outlook going forward
Really.. The individual had a history of poor performance according to news reports. Sad it took management 21 years to get him out the door so he could go look for a job he was capable of. Delivery drivers work hard and earn their pay. I know a few people with college degrees making less. Get rid of the poor performers or lower the pay so the firm doesn't go under. Business 101
The cost of upgrading facilities that have been neglected for years will continue to drag down profits
The technology changes for peak won't be sufficient to help the operations execute
the cost of operating the day after thanksgiving with tip the books over
WARNING WILL ROBINSON
Perhaps if you went to school you would have learned to compose a complete sentence or two. They also offer accounting and marketing that you probably missed. WalMart is always looking for greeters
Its a contractual thing to protect the feeder driver that has worked nights for 20 years then finally a day job opens up and a high seniority package driver takes it. I believe the ratio is 3 from outside and 2 transfers for every 5 needed.
Looks like Moodys likes the couple billion we are going to spend to bail the teamsters out of their single employer plan
Moody's Investors Service said terms of the new contract that the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) recently approved provide credit positive benefits for United Parcel Service (Aa3, stable). The company announced on 24 April that the previously agreed new Master Agreement with the IBT had been ratified by its membership. Certainty of labor and healthcare costs, flexibility for UPS of the defined work rules through the contract's expiry on 31 July 2018 and changes to health care plans for active IBT employees and future retirees are favorable benefits for the company's operating expense structure
