congrats to you apostolic......5more for me
i agree t251 he wont get todays rate for what he worked twenty years ago to get should have went to a teamster company spent 5 years in that system before he retired gained on retirment money
There is an old yankee saying. When one door closes, another opens. I hope everyone from "O" and "MC" has a prosperous, healthy and bright career ahead with UPSF. We'll be going at warp speed from here on out. UPSF has a lot of ground to catch up if wants to play with the big dogs. Thank God big brother has deep pockets, they're going to need it. "O" was much like Rodney Dangerfields, "No Respect", I won't miss it
very good ,brother,very good
ya,those are the tan one's that still got the overnite emblem on the door,did'nt ever see any around our way,either,saw some of the solid blue international navistars,and volvo's,and the old blue's & gray's.:smilie_132:
but,if we organized,and he got the back credits for his years at overnite,then the ny state pension check would be very much more. :smilie_132:
I just got hired on to the new ups freight and I am very excited to be joining. I am leaving a life of servitude as a Yellow road driver. No more waiting for those slave drivers to call and control my life...it's city driving from here out! I also worked for AF and was around when we were bought up by FedEx. You guys are in for a hell of a ride. Our freight levels TRIPLED easily and room for advancement was never ending. I went from dock to yard to city to road in a matter of a year. And with the UPS name and all the sales and tech. backing dominance is soon at hand.
better believe it :highfive: :waycool: and teamsters reresentation,to
IT WOULD BE FRICKIN" HUGE!!!!
Why did you leave AF/FXF?
I was fired by FedEx Frieght for installing an XM radio in my truck. I had permission from the shop to put it in but some S.O.B. went to the linehaul mgr. (whom I trained on the dock) and he said well that's destruction of company property we're gonna have to let you go. I was shocked!!!! That job i would have stayed with for as long as heavenly possible. Now I'm leaving Yellow for UPS so I can get my home life back. Being a Yellow road driver is great financially but If you have a family it is the worst job to have. I don't care about any major benefits just as long as I get a decent paycheck and can go home when i'm done.....priceless.
Hey Wassesname,T251 is right.
I hired on with Overnite in 1986.
I received my retirement printout 1 year later.
I was a teamster from 1966 till 1986 all low paying union years.
For my 20 years credit,I'm going to receive $810.00 per month.
Better than a lot of drivers I know that weren't vested when their companies closed the doors,and they weren't able to collect anything.
Hope this answers your question,my friend.
May the Lord direct your path it works for me.
apostolic...thank you for getting back to me... but T251 explained it better, i know now better who to ask for a strate answer promptly, i might add. but i wish you good luck anyway my friend
We don't have any in my neck of the woods yet. I heard that the new trucks will hit the streets in the morning. If they have been on the streets they have had a sticker over the UPSF emblem on the doors.
Slapped the ol' UPSfreight over the Motor Cargo last night in Salt Lake. And one of the Volvos was all painted up and on the grass in front of the newly logoed building.
UPSers web site said there is a western regional headquaters in Salt Lake, is it MC term or Ovnt?
It's a MC. I believe.
Why yes it is....
