AGE DISCRIMINATION
N.A.B.E.R. INC.
NATIONAL ALLIANCE OF "BROWN" EMPLOYEES AND RETIREES, INC.
Are Older UPSers Being Held To A Different Set Of Rules?

Naber has learned of a soon-to-be-filed age discrimination case. A driver who was only 3 years away from retirement was fired for a no damage "roll-away" accident.  Roll-aways are a "cardinal" offense, which means termination is possible without warnings or write-ups. But  "cardinal" offense terminations have to be administrated equally to all employees. 

But this not the case, younger drivers at this facility have had "roll-aways" without termination. This driver was smart, in that, he made sure these other accidents are documented.
"Several of the drivers that had 
roll aways, were in their twenties.They have been 
reinstated after a roll away accident even though their 
accident caused a lot more damage.One of the drivers 
had a roll away twice and he was reinstated after both 
roll aways. Approximately two weeks ago another 
driver had a roll away,he was out of his truck walking 
away from it and the truck rolled down a hill into the 
yard, UPS DID NOT TREAT THIS AS A ROLL AWAY ACCIDENT 
HE WAS IN HIS TWENTIES."

Disipline has to be administrated 
equally. Members of "protected groups" 
cannot be given greater punishment
 that others.

Another case of possible age discrim-
ination case of Dan O'Shea. Dan was 
terminated for use of a tape recorder. 
Use of a tape recorder is not only not
a "cardinal offense", but not against 
any written company policy.

An attorney in the Philadelphia area
is representing a former management
person, who was fired after 27 years.
The attorney "suspect(s) that the company was trying to get rid of him because of his age and tenure with the company."

From Las Vegas another UPSer writes,  "I was wondering if you have any knowledge or know of any UPS employees who claim they were recently terminated or discriminated against by UPS management due to their age.".

NY law firm Wolf-Popper LLP is looking to the possibility of a class action age discrimination suit. If you feel that UPS is discriminated against you because of age.

Protected groups, in terms of employment laws, are groups of people that are distinguished by special characteristics such as their race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, age (over 40), disability or veteran status. These particular groups are protected under federal antidiscrimination law, which mandates that people in one of these protected groups cannot be discriminated against in any facet of employment, including hiring, promotion, training, discipline, pay, and termination. 
If you have knowledge of any drivers who were not fired for a "roll-away" PLEASE share it with us.
