January 18, 2010: Management is squeezing package drivers more than ever. TDU arms UPS Teamsters with the information we need to protect ourselves. Read these online resources at www.tdu.org/upstoolbox. Or call TDU at 313-842-2600.

  • Using Daily Log Books: Keeping track of your day can give you back up if you’re facing production harassment or accused of stealing time—and it can help back off management too. Many UPS Teamsters use TDU’s Daily Log Book.
  • Working Safe, Working Smart: UPS management is laying off drivers, adding stops to routes, and pushing package car drivers to increase production more than ever. Following UPS’s methods is the best way to protect yourself.
  • Fighting Discipline for Production: Our union contract does not recognize the SPORH or any other production number. But that doesn’t stop UPS management from trying to use SPORH’s as a basis for discipline. Find out how to protect yourself—and other Teamsters—if management comes after you for production.
  • New Technology Tracks Drivers’ Every Move: UPS is implementing new technology that allows management to monitor drivers like never before. Telematics combines data from the DIAD, GPS and more than 200 sensors mounted on the package car. It amounts to a daily OJS without a manager ever getting in your truck.
