    These bold overpaid union workers believe their political connections make them untouchable_

    But this time the good guys appear to have been pushed too far and finally took action_

    I only hope UPS stands it's ground and doesn't cave to the coming union and political pressure_

    All's well that ends well.

    UPS Will Re-Hire 250 Queens Drivers Fired For Protest

    UPS says it will no longer terminate the 250 drivers who were set to be fired after staging a protest walkout at the company's Maspeth facility in February. The company, which was criticized by local elected officials for the mass firing, has reached an agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. The union will be required to pay any damages incurred by the protest in exchange for the workers' jobs......

    I agree. I was very OK with such a firing. I wouldn't tolerate such employees if I had a business.
