UPS Interview gone wrong. Refused to hire me. I would not join the union.

The UPS will not hire you unless you pay money to the union. To be a member or not. The Union is forcing people to pay a fee to work. This is why many States are in-acting laws to combat this unfair practice. UPS isn't fighting this unfair practice.

You just saved me from being in the exact situation. That's ridiculous to be expected to pay these fees for this Driver Helpers position. Thanks from the Mount Washington area.

Good decision because the union doesn't do jack for you unless you're a driver they just want your money. They only care about the drivers.

Totally happy I saved you the trouble. No where in the interview process was paying a union fee even mentioned.

The union is find if it is voluntary. The abusiveness of management will cause union roles to move up even in a voluntary system. How do I know this? I was in a union which was voluntary. Good management less union members. Union are blood suckers just like some companies are blood suckers.

Bill Moran, Glad you liked my video. Yeah I know, I outlined my refusing to pay union fees for a job. Re-read my recent post; I do agree in part. I was a member of a Union but it was voluntary and 95% of our work force was Union. The big difference was we didn't have to pay or join if we did not want too and for no other reason. If Management was wronging members the Union roles will increase and they did. Since Management is getting better each year (not wronging or violating the contract) the member %  falls a few % points overall. The bottom line is that my old Union has a large numbers of Voluntary membership of over 90%. I was a Volunteer.

The warehouse conditions are brutal, 1 15 minute break, they force you to work overtime during the peak season (late November into January) supervisors are constantly screaming pick up the pace even when you're in pain from lifting 100+ boxes that weigh 50 pounds or more each for 2 hours straight it's only 10 dollars an hour before union dues, I honestly don't know why anyone would want to work there.

I'm a driver too and worked in the hub for 15 years before I started driving. It's brutal work but the money and benefits are unparalleled. I live in TN and we don't have to join the union though. My dues are like $28 a month I think. I get free benefits, 5 weeks of vacation as of right now, 8 option days a year, weekends off, and will end up with 7 weeks of vacation after I've got 25 years. This is all with a high school education and you can make 6 figures a year if you're willing to put in the work as a driver. There are very few jobs that are that good for people with just a high school education. The faint of heart need not apply though and I know your husband would agree.

Eileen I am happy for you. The Union is out of control and it is forcing people to pay money to work.

John Smith husband went through all that and now that he's a driver I can tell you it's way worth it. Preloaders- the ones that stick around and can deal with and handle everything you mentioned above will eventually become a driver. My husband was the only one who stuck through it out of all the people he started with in the very beginning and after all his hard work we are able to live a nice life. It's not meant for everyone. I'm proud of him and it's tough work. Delivering 100lb packages to a 3rd floor apartment in 100 degree Texas summers sucks. I don't know how he does it but he does and still comes home to play with our toddler and baby.

Not all ups hubs are mandatory to join union but it's damn good to have the union on your side because you have protection.
