heatwave side effect, delivery drivers for the post office (USPS) and UPS are roasting, and posting photos of the 120+ degrees in their vans during their work day... because neither delivery company installs air conditioning for their drivers
Thermometer readings were posted by the Teamsters Union this past Monday. One shows a driver’s hand holding a temperature thermometer and pointing it into the back of their truck, filled with boxes on shelves. The thermometer reads 121.4 degrees.
Later that same month, a Scottsdale, Arizona, homeowner released doorbell video footage of a UPS driver collapsing in front of his door as he delivered a package in 110F (43C) heat.
"UPS is projected to pull in more than $100 billion in revenue in 2022 off the backs of Teamsters, and while management sits inside drooling over those figures, we’ve got members going to the emergency room," Perrone said. "These trucks and warehouses are infernos. UPS can afford to do the right thing and protect its workers. They need to stop making excuses and do it now."
The Teamsters represent about 350,000 UPS workers, and heat safety protections are a top issue in the union's negotiations as their contract is set to expire next year.
not only does this prove OSHA is not proactive, but it proves OSHA ignored the death of USPS delivery driver Peggy Frank in 2018, that I'm proud to point out I covered in news in 2018 https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2018/07/postal-delivery-worker-dead-in-her.html and followed up on in 2019 https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2019/08/peggy-frank-died-last-july-due-to-usps.html
