    The rules will apply only to non-unionized barns. All rule changes are subject to collective barginning. Yes, I have heard this new policy book is coming out. About 60% of the guys smoke at our place and I think you will find out that this is going to be a serious problem, if the TM gets to pick and choose who the violators are, how can they prove who smoked? are they going to do dna tests on the saliva on cigs? If these new policies don't push the remaining hold outs to the union, nothing will.:1036316054:

    Been there done that on the rules. Most of it sounds like Con-way stuff.
    Could be a bit of Kevin H at work!

    I didn't know what that was until the TM explained it to me. I was shocked to hear about it!

    In other words:
    :Rulz:= 1 strike 2 strikes 3 strikes YOUR OUT driver!

    :deal:= I'd like to use my get out of jail "Forgiveness" wild card.

    :console:= OKAY!

    :Zzzz:= Thanks Mr. Man

    Well say thats why you need solid contract language written in stone.

    I have only two things to say about these rules.
    first Bring on the horses,Second I'm glad I'm going to get out of this UPS rat race in a few short weeks.

    I feel so truely sorry for the rest of you if you decide to stay non-union.
    heaven help you to hang in there.

    As far as I know, Their is nothing that the union can do about company rules. If the company want to set rules, We will have to follow them. Union or not.

    exactly, this is just the beginning, my tm told me rules are going to have to be enforced 100% of the time, if not it leads to favortism accusations.

    Chances are, Company wide rules will not be in the contract. The company has every right to set their own rules (for everyone) and they will be followed, Union or not. Now if something can be negotiated regarding company policy, This could be put in the contract. But I highly doubt it will happen. One more thing. When you get a copy of these new endorsements (rules) You will sign a sheet of acknowledgment for these new rules. Expect it next week. New rules are in effect asap. Except where noted different.

Thank you, here is your unemployment application.
