Teamsters have sold out the members by forcing the latest version of a contract. My father retired after 30yrs in the 90's in Chicago. His pension was more than I was making working and health insurance until Medicare took over. He was 52 years old and still young enough to do a lot of things he often said the union was going to sell their workers out and that's why he took his retirement the current retirees aren't even getting what he used to get the company in the union are working together time to Alexa new leadership for the teamsters

Ups sucks. I was there for 12 yrs and I did it all. I loaded, unloaded, sorted and I drove for 5 yrs. It's very very taxing on your body. And for all you fellow upsers who considering driving, look at how all the older drivers look at the end of the day. Tired as fuck, and miserable, with broken bodies.

your comment about the tendency for introversion is interesting......many years ago I drove a tanker truck for Praxair, and there were literally days where I would come to work, load a tanker, make several deliveries all over the Bay Area, come back to the terminal, fill the trailer again and park the truck and not talk or interact with another human being the whole day. It was nice now and then.

Question: are all Ups truck manual shifts
Jeffrey Young (13 days ago)
David Cantu $45...my goodness. If the contract had passed it would of been a lil over $40 in the next 5 years. $36.26 still isn’t bad money for me.
David Cantu (13 days ago)
@Jeffery young no,that's starting pay. I believe top pay is 45
Jeffrey Young (13 days ago)
David Cantu is that the top rate in Texas? In Delaware it’s $36.26

Righteous One, their trucks are all automatic now, except their semi, the drivers get paid 18.75, maybe depends where you live.

May I ask, what/which are these other company union jobs outside UPS that one can be had?
Jeff Vanter (25 days ago)
Rick Hunter There are quite a few although not abundant as companies have grown increasingly hostile towards unions. A quick google search of unionized companies is your best bet.

Any more info on the contract?

In The Working World, The Individual gets paid based on what the job is worth. And not what they, as people, are actually worth...~●~...
Rich Campus (1 month ago)
Beyond the pro/con argument lies the core question for the individual. That being; Does the individual hold a set of integraties that allows he or she to transcend this state of heART and of Mind???

So if I wanted to be a driver and know little about driving a stick shift it could take years to become one? What do warehouse workers make?

+Slam Free Poetry dental ,health , vision, prescription , i believe after 12 months of employment all this kicks in .. this is standards for part time and fulltime we all share the same benifits.. esp like me if you have a family the insurance is the best out there and saved me thousands of dollars ..
Slam Free Poetry (1 day ago)
+Jeffrey Young also, do part timers get dental insurance too? If so how long until they become active? Thanks in advance!!

My building in Delaware have hired over 20 drivers who don’t know how to drive manual. I think they are not making it mandatory anymore. We had a driver who couldn’t drive a manual. The supervisors had us switch his load to another truck. They can’t force you to drive a stick.

So as usual the new contract for teamsters will mostly benefit the drivers mostly as it has always done for the last 15+ years. If you work for UPS and are a part timer please vote "NO" on this new shitty contract!!!

Our part time health care insurance has been dumbed down to shit while they claim it's the best in the country. We get no coverage where we need it the most while full timers get coverage where they need it the least.

Thx for the video.. Do you know how long before health benefits kick in as a new driver coming into ups? I can't find this info anywhere.
Andrew E. (19 days ago)
+David Cantu I figured that out and turned down the job.
David Cantu (22 days ago)
A full year for package handlers, immediately for drivers and supervisor posistions.
Andrew E. (2 months ago)
I was told 1 yr by the manager on duty after he looked up the info in the union book. He had offered the job too.

+Pimp Alchemist369 dont do drugs, dumbass. People are fucking stupid.
War Zone (2 months ago)
Good Luck.
War Zone (2 months ago)
it's seniority based, you can choose to get more or less hours based upon how much seniority you have. Getting into a responder job with very little seniority as I assume you have means no one above you wanted the job. Your basically a cleanup janitor fucker doing shit no one else wanted to do.
Pimp Alchemist369 (2 months ago)
Jetta Hammond alright thank you
Jetta Hammond (2 months ago)
+Pimp Alchemist369 to sort no. To work in hazmats, you have to get a physical before you can start training.

Do they hire overweight package handlers?
Jeff Vanter (2 months ago)
mrqslucas543 When you are hired at UPS, they will allow for you to sign a union card and give permission to the union to take out a small fee each paycheck. Considering that the union is there to protect you and your job, I would opt to join.

This company has trteated it;s part timers far to poorly for the last 12 years I have worked for UPS, please vote "NO" for this shitty contract

A few more pros 1.you get a pension 2.401k 3.you can make over $1,000 a week doing a drivers helper combo (work inside and then go out and help the drivers after your shift is over) 4. You get overtime after 5hrs or after 8 hrs if you do the drivers helper combo.
