    UPS Contract Negotiations Update, April 13, 2018


    The Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee concluded the sixth round of negotiations this week and focused on subcontracting and other issues. The UPS Freight National Negotiating Committee made strides on compensation claims, equipment and safety, and other issues.

    “This week was very productive in terms of moving forward on the issue of subcontracting, which continues to be a major issue for our members in many areas of the country,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee. “We are in a good position now to move into economic proposals and will continue to keep the members updated on our progress.”

    The committee dealt with Article 26, Subcontracting, specifically focusing on making sure feeder operations are sufficiently staffed to address the shortage of qualified feeder drivers in various regions. The committee also continued to work on Article 6.6, Technology and Discipline.

    The committee began working internally on economic proposals as well. It hopes to be able to present a comprehensive economic proposal at the next round of negotiations. Open, non-economic proposals will continue to be dealt with even as negotiations turn to economic proposals.

    UPS PROPOSES 70-HOUR WORK WEEK

    Teamsters United reports that UPS has a contract proposal on the table that gives the company the right to force package drivers to work up to 70 hours a week anytime they deem it necessary “to avoid service disruptions.”

    Under the language written by UPS, first, management would ask for volunteers. Then the company would force seasonal and non-seniority drivers. Then, the company can and will force seniority package drivers to work up to 70 hours a week. We can’t let that happen!

    The union's contract proposal gives drivers the right to refuse to work after completing his/her 60th hour of work in any work-week.

    The question is will Denis Taylor and the Hoffa administration hold their ground or will they let UPS get its way again.

    Teamsters UPS Negotiations Address Economics; UPS Freight Focuses on Subcontracting, Other Issue

    The Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee concluded its seventh round of negotiations this week in which the committee made an initial economic proposal. The initial proposal addresses Article 22 - Part- Time Employees; Article 34 - Health & Welfare and Pension; Article 40 - Air Operation; and Article 41- Full- Time Employees.

    The following are highlights from the union’s economic proposals:

    Article 22: Increasing the part-time starting wage rate and improving the wage structure is a top priority to the membership. As Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa told UPS at the opening of the negotiations, “a 20th century wage structure does not work in the 21st century.”

    Article 34: As in the past two contracts, the National Committee is continuing to push for significant increases to the company’s contributions to the health and welfare and pension funds.

    Article 40: The National Committee proposed raises to the wage progression rates and aims to improve overtime provisions.

    Article 41: The National Committee proposal reduces the length of the current four-year wage progressions and significantly increases the start rates.

    In addition to economics, the National Committee continued to discuss weekend delivery work. UPS has made several proposals about this that the National Committee reviewed as the week’s session closed out. “UPS employees are the reason that UPS is such a successful company,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee. “We intend to achieve the best possible contract, both in conditions as well as economics. We have gone a long way on the language and conditions; we are just beginning to address the economics.”

    UPS PROFITS SOAR, WANTS GIVEBACKS

    UPS announced first quarter profits of $1.35 billion today and told Wall Street that its profits for the year will top $6 billion.

    The company’s strong profits are good news for UPS Teamsters and give us leverage in contract negotiations.

    Despite record profits, UPS is demanding contract givebacks. But you don’t make givebacks to a company that’s making $6 billion a year.

    Profits by the Numbers

    “Our business was strong across all business segments,” CEO David Abney told investors. He’s right. Check out these numbers.

    UPS earned $17.1 billion in revenue in just three months.
    The U.S. Package division led the way with $10.2 billion in revenue—and $756 million in profits after taxes.
    UPS Freight revenue is up 10%, delivering $170 million in profits in three months

    MAKE UPS DELIVER FOR PART-TIMERS & INSIDE WORKERS

    Sign the petition to tell UPS and the International Union that we will vote to reject the contract unless it Makes UPS Deliver for ALL employees.

    Part-timers and inside workers are fed up with harassment, low wages and not enough full-time jobs.

    If UPS and the International Union come back with a weak contract offer, we will Vote No and send them back to the negotiating table to come back with a contract that makes UPS deliver:

    Higher Part-Time Wages and $15 Starting Pay starting on August 1 with annual increases every year.
    Extra Annual Raises For Current Part-Timers so we are well above the new $15 starting rate
    10,000 New Full-Time 22.3 Jobs
    More Guaranteed Hours & Overtime Opportunities
    Strong Protections and Monetary Penalties to Stop Harassment & Unfair Discipline

    Teamsters float proposal for Sunday deliveries by UPS; three officials canned for opposing it

    A proposal by the head of the Teamsters union's package division to allow UPS Inc. drivers to work on Sundays for the first time, and to create a two-tier driver structure to do it, has led to three members being dismissed from a Teamster committee negotiating a new contract with the transport and logistics giant because they opposed the proposal.

    According to a notice appearing late Friday on the website of the dissident group Teamsters for a Democratic Union (TDU), Denis Taylor, head of the union's package division, removed Avral Thompson, John Bolton, and Matt Taibi from the union's National Negotiating Committee.

    Thompson and Bolton are officers at Louisville's Local 89, arguably the country's most powerful UPS local because it is based in the city of UPS' global air hub known as Worldport, and because it is run by Fred Zuckerman, who came very close to unseating General-President James P. Hoffa in the 2016 general election. Taibi is the principal officer of Local 251 in Rhode Island. Thompson is also a vice president at the international union.

    Zuckerman confirmed the dismissals in an e-mail late Friday. The Teamsters have declined comment, citing the on-going negotiations with UPS to negotiate new contracts covering small-package and less-than-truckload (LTL) operations. Both contracts expire July 31.

    The proposal floated by Taylor would create a classification of "hybrid drivers" to work Sunday through Thursday, or Tuesday through Saturday. The proposal, which was disclosed by the dissident group Teamsters for a Democratic Union (TDU), calls for these workers to perform any "recognized part-time work," and not to deliver packages full time.

    Teamsters Receive UPS' Initial Economic Proposals

    The Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee received UPS’ initial economic proposal this week, and the union will be responding during the next round of negotiations.

    The company’s action comes after the union committee made its initial economic proposal during the last negotiations in late April.

    This week, the eighth week of negotiations, the company’s economic proposal covered Article 22—Part-time Employees; Article 34—Health, Welfare & Pension; and Article 41—Full-time Employees.

    In addition, several union proposals remain open, particularly on the important issue of subcontracting.

    “As we anticipated, the company’s initial economic proposals do not address our members’ needs as written,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiation Committee. “Our mission continues to be protecting the livelihoods of all our UPS members and their families. Make no mistake, there is plenty of work to do but the committee remains focused on getting the job done.”

    At this stage of the negotiations, the committee is working to analyze and formulate counter proposals on the various full-time wage progressions and part-time start rates and wage structure.
