Ask your UPS driver how much money they make an hour during the holiday rush. Then see if you still fee bad for them.
UPS drivers are planning to demonstrate against a 70-hour work week during the holiday season.
The Teamsters Locals said UPS “is forcing a 70-hour week for drivers” which is “a nationwide issue jeopardizing the safety of drivers and the general public.”
UPS failed to plan ahead and hire seasonal drivers for the holidays, said the Teamsters, and instead increased the hours of regular workers to compensate.
“Teamster who usually show up for work 45 minutes early will instead demonstrate against the unfair move by management this holiday season.”
In a statement, UPS said the company “appreciates the exceptional effort of all employees during our peak holiday shipping season, when daily delivery volumes are near double the normal level.”
