    Default DHL Wants Concessions on National Contract

    November 2, 2009: DHL Teamsters report that IBT officials have met with management over proposed contract changes that would include buy outs of Teamster to allow the hiring of low-wage drivers and dock workers.

    Reportedly, DHL Teamsters currently working would be offered $75,000 to sever ties with the company while those remaining on lay off status would be offered $25,000. 75 percent of the remaining currently working active seniority list would be “red circled” and guaranteed 40 hours per week at full pay rate. The remaining 25 percent would drop down to part time status at $12 - $14 hour.

    At this point no proposal in writing has been put to the members. Teamsters have a right to vote on any proposed contract change

    DHL Wants Concessions on National Contract

    November 2, 2009: DHL Teamsters report that IBT officials have met with management over proposed contract changes that would include buy outs of Teamster to allow the hiring of low-wage drivers and dock workers.

    At this point no proposal in writing has been put to the members. Teamsters have a right to vote on any proposed contract change.

    Concerned DHL Teamsters have launched a campaign to oppose the changes to the contract. They see the re-opener as a DHL effort to eliminate good fulltime union jobs and reposition the company with reduced labor costs. Under the national contract, DHL cannot use part-time drivers until they have recalled all Teamsters on lay off.

    As the economy recovers, DHL—which is the largest express carrier in Europe and in much of the world—may seek to expand into the U.S. domestic market with labor costs well below that of UPS or even of nonunion FedEx.

    Teamster activists at DHL plan to pressure the IBT and their local officers to oppose the buy outs and other concessions. Petitions are circulating opposing any changes to the contract.

    Why have the IBT officials met with management to renegotiate a contract that has already been fought for, negotiated, ratified, signed, sealed, and delivered. DHL is just trying to circumvent their agreement within the DHL National contract that is legally binding until April 2013!!!!!! Teamsters should be representing the interests of all dues paying union members!! Is our Teamster pride being sold down the river??? This tentative agreement is an embarrassment to the Teamsters union throughout this nation!!!! This **** is unacceptable!!!!!

    P.S. Hoffa is going to be looking for a job, as far as I am concerned, if contracts are negotiated only to have companies change their minds and expect the Teamsters union to renegotiate these agreements before the terms of the original contract has been honored!!!!!! They have alot of explaning to do to all of their dues paying members that are not having their best interests represented!!!!!!! The Doctor!!!!

    Default National Labor Relations Board may have interest here!!!

    I have been a dues paying member of the Teamsters union for 22 years and I have never seen such concessions, much less heard of, among organized labor in all of my life as well as throughout the twentieth century. Labor contracts are legal and should be required to mean something or they are not worth the paper they are printed on!!!! All of us proud DHL Teamsters may need to contact the National Labor Relations Board to inquire about their interest in this recent contract changing event.

    Am I interpreting this wrong, or did they not just spend a few years getting out of the domestic market, cause they were losing money hand over fist?

    DHL is realizing that they have made, once again, a big management mistake in getting out of the domestic overnight business!!! UPS and FEDX is getting their international business. Now they want to get back into the industry, off the sweatin' brow and broken backs of those drivers left after layoffs!! They expect us to turn against our brothers and sisters by taking either buyouts or substandard wages as well as having less drivers guaranteed the 40 hours as declared within the current DHL National Contract!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The Doctor!!!!
