In a move that may make some union members think twice about attempting to bully companies into personnel decisions, UPS recently fired 250 Queens, NY drivers for walking off the job. Back in February, a long-time employee, who was a driver for 24 years as well as a union activist, was let go. In response, 250 drivers walked off the job for 90 minutes.

The New York Daily News reports that the firings have enraged union leaders, but UPS management contends that the drivers knew their jobs were at risk if they walked off.

Twenty employees were terminated Monday after their shifts — and the remaining 230 notified that they’ll be canned as soon as replacements are trained, a company spokesman said. 

“They just called me in … (and) said, ‘Effective immediately, you are no longer on the payroll,’” said Steve Curcio, 41, a 20-year employee earning $32 an hour.

EAT IT, unions! Screw YOU!

Good for UPS !!!

More businesses should do the same.

Those guys didn't know how good they had it. But the unions are so greedy always wanting more.

Now that got nothing.

Way to go UPS.
UPS was one of the most dependable and out standing company in the US until the union bullies took over a few years ago. Sense service has suffered and prices have more than doubled. A great round of applause for UPS. I think they should fire all union drivers and return to their great business practices of per union.


The unions have outlived their usefulness.

You can in 3 words sum up what unions want. More, more, more. :(

Anytime a union takes over the business will fail.  That is unless it is one of obama's campaign contributors.  Then they have a never-ending bank account of bail outs.



Is this nation beginning to GET IT ? ? ?


Now let's see how well we do at removing RINOS during the next election.

I'm all for that Philip.

This is a start.  Unions, both public employee and private employee, are evil.  Unions have a disproportionate influence on politics.  They are run by corrupt leaders.  They are bankrupting many governmental entities; cities, counties, states and the federal government.  Unions epitomize a level of greed that is intolerable.  I strongly support UPS's actions, and hope other companies will have the courage to deal with illegal union activities in the same way.  Down with all unions.

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
