    Default UPS installing cameras

    This story is from TDU.
    There is an attached petition contained in the story link.

    UPS INSTALLING CAMERAS INSIDE PACKAGE CARS
    Just when you thought the monitoring and harassment couldnít get any worse, UPS is installing cameras inside package cars.
    UPS has installed Lytx Drivecam in package cars in four centers in Oklahoma and Texas, with plans to bring them to a truck near you.
    Just like when Telematics was first introduced, managementís pitch is that the cameras are just about safety.
    But UPS Teamsters know all too well how management abuses Telematics to harass and discipline drivers.
    Our International Union needs to take action to protect UPS Teamsters.

    Here is some more news about this situation.

    UPS testing of telematics tools draws ire of union dissident group

    UPS Inc. (NYSE:UPS) said it is testing advanced technology that it claims will enhance driver and public safety, to the chagrin of a Teamsters union dissident group that warns the company could be continuing a decades-long pattern of leveraging technology to harass its drivers.

    The Atlanta-based company has installed the “Lytx Drivecam” in its familiar brown vans at four centers in Texas and Oklahoma. It is the first step in a plan to install the technology nationwide, according to the Teamsters For a Democratic Union (TDU), a group at constant war with mainstream Teamster leadership and deeply suspicious of UPS’ labor-related initiatives.

    UPS, which is the largest Teamster employer with about 252,000 members, would not comment on whether a nationwide rollout is planned.

    In a statement emailed to FreightWaves late Friday afternoon, UPS said that two devices are being tested: One is an in-cab sensor that monitors driving habits and sends an audible alert to the driver to take “corrective action.” The other is an outward-facing camera that alerts the driver if the vehicle drifts on the roadway or if a potential hazard is detected.
    In an internal memo issued Wednesday, Dennis Taylor, director of the Teamsters’ package division, said it is “investigating the enhancements” as it relates to contract language addressing how UPS’ technology changes affect the labor-management relationship.

    They need the same language we have in regards to the drive cams. The camera facing the driver is not operational.
