    Teamsters UPS and UPS Freight Local Union Leaders to Meet August 9

    Leaders of local unions that represent UPS and UPS Freight members will meet August 9 to review the tentative agreements.

    The meeting is known as a “Two-Person” meeting because two leaders from each local union are invited to attend.

    Meanwhile, after another round of negotiating sessions, the Teamsters UPS Supplemental Negotiating Committees have reached tentative agreements on many supplements to the National Master UPS agreement. However, there are some supplemental agreements which have not been finalized. The outstanding supplements are: Local 804, and Southwest Package and Sort Rider.

    After the Two-Person meetings, upon approval of the tentative agreements by the local union leaders, the tentative agreements will be sent to the membership for a ratification vote.Click here for a PDF of this update.

    UPS Teamsters Take On Two-Tier

    This time, a national “no” vote on the whole enchilada is a very real possibility. “UPS overplayed their hand,” said Nick Perry, a TDU International Steering Committee member who delivers packages in Columbus, Ohio. “I think it’s going to go down in flames.”

    But a rejection is not assured. Both the corporation and the union tops are launching all-out campaigns to sell the deal, and using the strike possibility as a threat against members.

    NEW WEEKEND UNDERCLASS

    What’s so bad about this pact? For starters, it would undercut the full-time drivers who deliver packages by allowing UPS to create a second tier of drivers at a much lower wage.

    UPS is forecasting $6 billion in profit this year.

    Already a vast underclass of low-paid part-timers do much of the inside work—sorting, loading, and unloading parcels. But till now, package delivery jobs have been sacrosanct.

    Tentative UPS Agreement Strengthens Protections Against Harassment, Excessive Overtime
    Article 37, Section 1 (a): Harassment is an issue that encompasses many forms. Supervisors use telematics; poor staffing levels; retaliation for filing grievances, accident reports and on-the-job injury reports; retaliation for eight-hour requests and invoking rights pertaining to 9.5 language; OJS rides and various other tactics. It is the company’s responsibility to hire and maintain a sufficient work force to service its customers without unreasonably burdening its employees. Manage- ment has consistently failed to fulfil its obligation, instead shifting the responsibility for ensuring service commit- ments are met to its already highly productive employees.

    The tentative National UPS Agreement increases protections for UPS Teamsters against harassment and excessive, forced overtime.

    Under Article 37, Section 1 (a), there is stronger grievance enforcement for harassment with a sitting arbitrator and monetary penalties of up to three (3) times the employee’s daily guarantee. The sitting arbitrator will prevent UPS from delaying a deadlocked grievance while going through regular arbitration, eliminating a very lengthy process.

    Actual language: “Grievances not resolved by the Local or Area grievance procedure shall be forwarded to the National Article 37 Grievance Committee. Such Committee shall be com- prised of an equal number of Union and Employer representa- tives and a sitting arbitrator who shall decide the merits and penalty of each case in the event of a deadlock by the Commit- tee. Cases will be presented and decided in accordance with Article 8 and the National Grievance Committee Rules of Proce- dure…The Article 37 Committee shall be empowered to provide a monetary penalty for each proven violation of this Section up to a maximum penalty of three (3) times the employee’s daily guarantee depending on the severity of the offense.”

    Louisville union tells workers to vote 'No' on UPS contract

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Teamsters Local 89 is telling about 12,000 UPS employees in the greater Louisville area to vote ‘No’ on a proposed five-year labor contract with the shipping giant, saying the tentative deal doesn’t sufficiently raise wages, among other problems.

    The recommendation comes after the leaders of 179 local unions nationwide*voted “overwhelmingly” to move forward with the contract at meeting in the Chicago-area last week, according to a spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which negotiated the deal.

    The tentative agreement, reached in June, does not go into effect unless ratified by a majority of the 260,000 UPS workers across the country*in an electronic-ballot vote next month.

    Stewards at UPS' largest local vote to reject labor contracts

    Shop stewards of the largest Teamster union local representing UPS Inc. small package and freight workers have voted overwhelmingly to reject the tentative collective bargaining agreement covering both groups, the Louisville, Ky.-based local said yesterday.

    The action, taken by more than 70 shop stewards who represent about 10,000 UPS workers at Local 89, increases the already strong possibility that the local's rank-and-file will vote down both contracts, as well as a supplement to the master contracts that affect the union's central region, and a rider that covers workers at UPS' "Worldport" air hub, the company's primary global sortation facility for air services.

    "Our stewards were clear that they believe our members deserve better," said Fred Zuckerman, Local 89s president, in a statement. "Local 89 stands by them in their recommendations for a no vote."

    UPS contract will 'go down in flames,' Louisville union president says

    Teamsters Local 89 President Fred Zuckerman predicts that a proposed five-year labor contract will be handily rejected in an upcoming national vote.
    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The president of the Louisville union representing thousands of local UPS workers predicts that a proposed five-year labor contract will be handily rejected in an upcoming national vote.

    “This thing is going to go down -- it’s going to go down in flames – and it needs to because it’s a very bad agreement,” Teamsters Local 89 President Fred Zuckerman told about two dozen package car drivers at a “Vote No” rally on Friday morning. “We can do better.”

    About 260,000 rank-and-file UPS workers are set to vote on the deal later this month, with results to be released Oct. 5. That includes 10,000 to 12,000 in Louisville, most of whom work part-time at UPS’ Worldport global air hub.

    I am posting this as an opinion article and for informational use.

    Will UPS Teamsters Vote No?
    UPS drivers are facing a contract with huge proposed concessions negotiated by James Hoffa. The only way to protect their living standards is to vote "no."
    One of the most contentious union contract battles in decades is entering its final weeks at United Parcel Service (UPS). Teamster General President James P. Hoffa has pulled out all stops to ratify contracts at UPS and UPS Freight in the face of opposition across the country.
    Campaigning by Hoffa and opponents led by Teamsters United and Teamsters for a Democratic Union (TDU) will continue down to the deadline for voting on October 5th at 8:00 PM EST, and the results will be announced that night. Teamster activists I’ve spoken to predict a close vote at the much larger UPS package division. They also predict that the separately negotiated national UPS Freight contract will be defeated. Balloting materials were mailed out to UPS Teamsters last week.
