    UPS as a company does not discriminate against religious beliefs as long as it is in your application, but there are locations that drivers have to be part of the union, and other union driver will discriminate and hassle you for not working on Sabbath. I know, that happened to me, and when I took it up to the supervisor he said that the supervisory position wasn't union so he could not do anything. Ended up leaving the company after that Christmas rush.

    In truth, there are quite a few different religious denominations that observe the Sabbath besides those religions. There are Zionists, Church of Yahweh, and several others. Anyway, just offering insight.

    The Sabbath is a day of religious observance and abstinence from work, kept by Jews from Friday evening to Saturday evening, and by most Christians on Sunday.

    You’ll have to go local because OTR drivers are pretty much 24/7 drivers. It’s common for local drivers to not work on Saturdays and Sundays. When I was a local, few drivers worked Saturdays and almost no one worked on Sundays.

    McKee Foods is owned by 7th Day Adventists. If you work for them in any capacity, you will be off duty for the Sabbath.
