Experiments is the only one who knows what he's talking about. The hourly workers had a right to walk according to the NMFA .
The "union" bought the workers jobs back after begging UPS for a second chance to save face. This is akin to a "union" plea bargain -- admitting "guilt" by the workers (arguably unreliable to simply walk off after being cautioned against it), and agreeing to compensate UPS (it's only fair right(?)) for their losses.
About time AMERICAN workers get a voice again. Glad for the public outcry. Get AMERICANS to quit listening to the radio talking heads and work together to bring back the AMERICAN dream !
The Union should have never agreed to the settlement. They should have told UPS to kiss their rear and filed a law suite against them but I guess they figured if they did that they workers definitely would not get their jobs back.Sounds like this McGowan guy from UPS Media is a real ass and their management is probably the same.He said, "Sorry were not sorry"and he will find out when people stop using their company.
Poker....What you are saying is that UPS has to abide by the contract, but the Union does not. What the hell good is a contract if only one side has to abide by it?
Public outcry caused the reverse decision to fire the employees not because UPS was trying to do the right thing.
I agree with UPS. That is what courts are for. I absolutely refuse to fly that piece of trash Spirit Airlines, since their Pilots stranded all their passengers. Yea, I got stranded and nearly lost my job because I was unable to get to work on time.
Where did not get the idea that pilots or anyone for that matterdon't have the right to strike? The first mistake you made wasflying Spirit Airlines.
Is that Doug Heffernan in the photo at the top of the article?
I am sure all the anti-union bashers want to say it was the unions fault. Most of those people feel workers should just shut up and be grateful to have a job. Something like slaves to be happy to have a job
It was an illegal work stoppage,and does warrant discipline. It is of significance that the Union has to "pony up" for the damages. 10 days off w/o pay is also of significance. In this day and age (or any other) a business cannot remain competitive with the workers "shutting down services" at their whim and fancy. The flip side is that UPS does "run short" of hourly employees and fills in with salaried personnel in excess. This is factual. The Union Rep was probably on the right track and the "salaried laborers" are silently cheering him on.
I refuse to ever fly Spirit airlines again for that exact same reason. I got stranded when their crybabies walked off the job.
I was a strong union man until i found out how they wasted our money, mainly giving it to liberal democrats.
