Description

The story examined how United Parcel Service has, in part, built its business by putting profits before that safety and health of its workforce. Despite a public profile of a charity-minded company that believes in team work and treating employees like family, the Chronicle looked behind the PR and found a record of deaths, injuries and accidents and repeated violations of government regulations that make UPS one of the worst employers in the nation in terms of health and safety issues. (Aug. 4, 1995)
