Senior drivers are tired of the BS!

  1. do you do something stupid when you drive you shouldn't have nothing to worry about..
    I have one that doesn't phase me whatsoever anymore..
    I simply told the company I know never text and drive anyway even before it but if I feel like changing a CD if I feel like eating I'm going to do so.. but I'm also going to use common sense if I feel the need to have to reach for some tea or a drink I'm going to pull over off the road.. backhoe crashing into a bunch of people like in Indianapolis..

    i mite have spoken to late. i seen a ups freight truck with a company camera. i have to confirm if the feeder drivers do or dont
     
  5. anything that says UPS freight is non-union than Teamster they're basically the old overnite &more.
    but now pretty much all of UPS's non-union fall underneath that canopy...that includes the overnight folk the UPS supply chain solutions and anything that's not Union you will find under freight...so it doesn't surprise me if they don't have dash cameras mandated or something people choose to have them it's hard to tell anymore

    ups freight has a teamster division. ups truckload is a basic low standard otr company.
     
    mxpx148 Thanks this.
  7. well that's interesting to know I always thought that's why they bought overnite back in the day for the non-union...
    because they tried to get overnight to do like consolidated at the time go Union and they wouldn't next thing you know overnight had to cease to exist and was merging with UPS
