UPS Workers Rally Against Extreme Heat, ‘Inferno’ Conditions At Work

UPS workers are fed up.

The notoriously hot working conditions for UPS have pushed them over the edge this summer.

Calling distribution centers “infernos,” the workers rallied in New York City yesterday against the intolerable conditions.

“The rally was inspired by the June death of 24-year-old Esteban Chavez, a UPS driver who collapsed while working a 90-degree day in Pasadena, California,” CNBC reported. “The event concluded with a moment of silence for Chavez.”

Six UPS drivers in New York City suffered heat-related illnesses on the job last week alone.
