    Very few of us are on a lift. Out of the eighty drivers at my terminal only one run is required to work the dock.

    I currently work for UPSF and let me tell y’all right now we might be the top paid and have the fastest trucks but we can’t hold a pole to FedEx freight. Lol most of our runs are ran by contractors. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side trust me. Y’all have it made at FedEx. UPSF are light years behind. Y’all steady add runs while we lose runs. Just my two cents.

    Well, maybe we just look like we're light years ahead from your side of the fence? ;-)

    I agree totally though and am grateful for what we have...

    Like I said, the grass is always greener.

    Both companies have their advantages and disadvantages, a common thread across the industry. The choice should be made based upon what your needs are.

    Everyone looks at a situation that is not their own with a different perspective.

    A lot of people think UPSF has it made because they are under a union contract with the Teamsters. I pointed out earlier in this discussion that the UPSF contract currently has no restrictions on the use of purchase transportation, something a lot of people at FedEx are already seriously concerned about.

    On one hand, FedEx is not bound by a union contract and therefore can use all the purchase transportation they want. On the other hand, UPSF does not have a contract that prevents them from using all the purchase transportation they want.

    I'm not taking sides here, just pointing out the facts.

    I can’t disagree with you on that. You are right.I just hate the term UNION BROTHER. Another term for it would be DOG EAT DOG. But that’s another story but you’ll right about that.

    "All fake news" this part was never used on the 2.8L Peugeot engine that powered the Delorean, its primary use was a Donaldson Valve actuator.

    And it was used on a Jacobs engine brake in the early 80's.

    Volvo used the Peugeot 2.8 in 1981
    How dare you question my smarts!
    Since you're not gullible enough to ask about my actuator valve, I'm gonna tell you.
    It makes a turd tapered, so your butthole doesn't slam shut.
    BTW, my wife bought a Delorean at a yardsale, the engine was in 3 boxes, I spent 2 yrs getting it back together.

    All scheduled road runs will run before a contractor will run. If a contractor runs and a scheduled road driver has no work and is sent home, the road driver will be paid for the entire night for sitting home.

    So I've heard. But what I hear mentioned of it is that the pay received for sitting isn't what could have been made at work. I've also heard that road runs in some cases are being deliberately structured in a way that's too far for a road driver to complete, justifying giving out to PTS.

    I don't know for absolute certain, and I won't claim to know, but I have seen a lot of UPS road drivers complaining about it. So I can only believe that it's a problem.
