    Today in Labor History

    Frederick Douglass died on this date. In an 1857 address Douglass said, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.

    Local 992 UPS driver created wildly popular ‘UPS Dogs’ social media pages
    Jan. 7, 2020 | When Sean McCarren, 44, started having little four-legged “fans” follow him around on his UPS route, he decided to start taking their photos. After collecting more than 60 pictures of dogs on his phone, he posted one on his personal Facebook page in 2013 just for fun. “Everybody got all excited about it, so I just went ahead and made a little Facebook page to share them all,” said McCarren, who lives in Martinsburg, W.Va., and works out of the Hagerstown UPS center. After he established the Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, other UPS drivers started posting dogs that they see on their travels delivering packages. There were steady posts for several years, then in 2017, the pages took off. “It just went viral,” McCarren said… Herald Media [McCarren, right, has been a member of Teamsters Local 992 in Hagerstown, MD since 2002.]
