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.
GOOD WORK UPS !!! YOU ARE A LEADER !!!
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.
