    Teamsters officials agree to pay UPS and accept ten-day suspensions to end revolt against firings - World Socialist Web Site

    On April 9, Teamsters Local 804 announced that it had reached an agreement with United Parcel Service (UPS) to reinstate all of the 250 workers who were being fired from the company’s Maspeth, Queens, New York facility. The workers had staged a 90-minute protest walkout in response to the summary firing of another worker, Jairo Reyes, supposedly over a scheduling dispute (see UPS fires 250 workers in Queens, New York over drivers’ walkout).

    While full details of the agreement are not available, the main points include a 10-day suspension for all the fired workers and the payment of an undisclosed amount of “monetary damages” to the company by the union.

    Judge finds headlight signal to be free speech - Mail Tribune

    Flashing high-beam headlights to warn other drivers about nearby law enforcement is protected as free speech under the Oregon Constitution, a local judge has ruled.

    Jackson County Justice Court Judge Joe Charter ruled March 26 that when a motorist on Highway 140 last September used his high-beams to warn other motorists about a sheriff's deputy in the car behind, he was expressing himself and not breaking any laws.

    Christopher Hill, of Klamath Falls, was driving his commercial truck westbound on Highway 140 near White City while a Jackson County sheriff's deputy drove behind him.

    "It's a pretty common practice for truck drivers to holler over the CB radio about law enforcement," said Hill, who sometimes signals when law enforcement is nearby by flashing his lights or sticking out two fingers sideways. ...

    UPS honoring veterans during Thunder flyover - WDRB

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --
    It's all eyes on the sky this weekend during Thunder Over Louisville, and one flight you'll see will be run by a very special crew.

    This will be the fourth time UPS has flown over the event. This year, the selection process included a special tribute to those who've served our country.

    Troy McCullum, an aircraft maintenance manager for UPS, served in the Air Force for four years. His job is to oversee the team preparing a 767 for the flyover.

    "Again, any discrepancies, any damage, any what we call delamination, all those discrepancies will be addressed and repaired before the next flight," he said.

    Veterans were chosen to help with everything from the planning, preflight inspection, even the flight itself.

    "This is an all veterans crew," said Captain ...

    Traffic camera catches UPS truck hitting pedestrian

    TUKWILA, Wash. --
    Brittany Jackson limped into her attorney's office Friday. The 25-year-old has endured 5 months of wheelchairs, crutches, leg braces, physical therapy, and doctors. Injuries and medical expenses forced her to move back home with mom and dad.

    And now she wants justice from UPS and one of its drivers.

    Jackson's quality of life unraveled last November when she entered a crosswalk at Minkler Boulevard and Andover Park West in Tukwila. It was less than a block from where she taught gaming design to adults. It was 5:30 p.m. when she saw the walk light and began to cross three lanes.

    "The next thing I know, it was a headlight in my face and it was a tall headlight," she recounted. "Next thing after that was I'm on the ground. I felt the wheels go over my feet."
