The Fat Cat is Back!

Drugs & Alcohol are Off Limits @ Work

UPS policy states: "The unauthorized use, sale, or possession of alcohol and/or controlled substances is strictly prohibited while at work, on company property, or on company business.

This prohibition also includes use, sale, or possession of illegal drugs or improper use of controlled substances."

Every member needs to adhere to this policy in order to keep your job, and more importantly to protect your safety, the safety of your co-workers, and the general public.

This is common sense. But there have been a rash of violations of this policy.    

Don't gamble with your livelihood and your license. Follow the company policy and obey the law!
