83-Year-Old Is Longest-Serving UPS Employee

DETROIT — Marty Peters started delivering packages for UPS in Detroit in 1946.

Peters began delivering packages March 7, 1946 for 95 cents an hour. He said he appreciated the fact that UPS provided his uniform, including a brown bowtie. “You couldn’t get out the door unless you had a bowtie on,” Peters said. “That was a big priority at UPS, shine your shoes and a bowtie.”
