Lillian Franklin started this petition to Louisiana State House and

Louisiana experiences record-breaking heat every year. As a UPS driver who spends 8-10 hours a shift in a solid metal truck with no air conditioning, my husband is at risk of injury every workday. The temperature inside the cargo area is 15-20 degrees hotter than the outside temperature. For 5 months out of the year, average temperatures in Louisiana are over 110 degrees. This means that the cargo area in a UPS truck is at least 125 degrees. And since a UPS driver is not allowed to go home until all of the packages on his truck are delivered, my husband consistently runs for 8-10 hours in a fluctuating temperature of 100-125 degrees. This is extremely dangerous. UPS is the ONLY company that does not provide this comfort. In the excessive heat of the southwest, it should be mandatory for the health and safety of all UPS drivers to have air conditioning. If it is illegal in the state of louisiana to leave a child or pet in your vehicle during the hot summer months, then it is only reasonable to suggest that safety measures, such as air conditioning, be required in UPS trucks. Delivery drivers are the ONLY employees within UPS who do not have vehicles with air conditioning. Please sign, share and support us as we ask UPS to give all of their employees the same treatment, provide air conditioning for your package car drivers.
 Providing air conditioning in the trucks is something that should have been done. The heat gets worst every summer, Year by year and my husband sweats all the water out of his body and all the hydrating drinks is sweated out til he is dehydrated and have cramps all over his body from his head to his feet cramps. Even his hand and feet cramp. Legs arms calves chest stomach butt etc. These men work these long hours in this heat without the luxary of cool air while dropping off 10-90 packages per stop. Big and small packages but no a/c while being on the road is a terrible way to treat your priority employees. I need 3-400,000 signatures from everyone that agrees.
