    I had a friend who was a ups driver. 
    He was pushed hard, the trucks apparently suck, especially in bad weather, and if anything goes wrong the drivers are always to blame.
    The Holidays were particularly stressful.

    Well, UPS just agreed with the union to install AC in the next generation of trucks. Doesn’t do the driver much good while he humps carts with packages up and down ramps into office buildings or stands out in the heat arguing with some Karen over unmet delivery timelines he has no control over.

    I am afraid this is going to be a pyrrhic victory for the union. Amazons delivery is subcontracted and non-union. If UPS personnel cost runs away like that, someone is going to undercut them.
