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.

Will the union shut down UPS?

Hey Van, If they UPS does that a lot of people will go over to Fed Ex.

Lets see how the Transportation Dept. or other Federal Agencies reacts.  It is a guarantee that some dept within this administration will retaliate.

The Days of Union Tyranny are OVER !

If you have a Greivance, discuss it with Management who represent the Owners of the business.  You walk off the job, You're Fired !

SOCIALISM:  "Ownership or control of the major means of production and distribution by the Collective People through the government."

Capitalism, The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution:  Individuals own property.  NOT the 'Collective People'.


Bravo, UPS

Unions are parasites on business & production in  any field.  Tenure in higher education included.  People are people.  If you can't be fired your performance falls away.  The pressure of needing to perform to keep your job is important to your own self esteem.  You have personal pride in knowing that you are doing a good job and contributing to the success of your employer.  This gets you promoted to a better job.  How do I know?  I lived it.   Many people are union members only because they have no choice if they want to keep their job.  If they try to improve production they are bullied to stop.  How do I know?  I lived it, and went to a non-union workplace.

Thank heavens.   I have seen more than I care to , business , people losing their jobs because of Unions.   Had a neighbor whose husband voted against every strike.   No one ever knew the votes.. but the bosses always called for a strike.    Bosses lived high on the hog.   Their thugs did.  But workers  like my neighbor were forced into a union.   Had no say.   And every strike left them worse off.... their saving depleted.

Good Job UPS Unions are one of the downfalls of America

Thank God ! Every business should do the same.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
