    Teamsters: 260,000 UPS Workers Ready To Strike For Better Contract

    https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/vide...tter-contract/

    So I went back to this story where I found it yesterday. So it is the same website I posted this from yesterday. Reposted the link for this video again. Seems to working now. But look at the title at the top of the page. Latest Videos is what it is called so it may quit showing it again.

    Bad link,....

    And even though the proposal was voted down,

    hoffa and the goons are forcing it on the members with their 2/3rds rule,..

    This might well mark the end of the teamsters,...

    Who in their right mind will want to organize after seeing the union
    leadership ignore the votes of the members and instead side with the
    company?

    Not the end of the Teamsters, but hopefully the end of the Hoffa regime.

    It is a news channel with video story so the video has changed.

    I don't know why that link is not working as that story is still up on other sites. Here is a written article instead. Reinserted the same link in that first post of mine and it seems to be working for now.

    United Parcel Service (UPS) workers have given their union the go-ahead to call a strike in what would be their first walkout -- and one of America's most far-reaching picket lines -- in decades. The vote gives union negotiators more sway in contract talks with the shipping giant.

    The tally released by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Tuesday night had 93 percent of UPS members endorsing the authorization and 91 percent of UPS freight employees backing the measure. A national pact with the union covers about 260,000 UPS workers, and the current contract expires July 31.

    The members' vote "gives the negotiating committees bargaining leverage this week and during subsequent negotiations for the national contract and the supplements," Denis Taylor, a Teamsters director and co-chairman of the bargaining committee said in a statement.

    "UPS is confident in our ability to reach an agreement," a company spokesperson responded in an email. "Strike authorization votes do not mean a strike is imminent. The reality is that UPS and the Teamsters have already reached tentative agreements, subject to ratification, on a wide variety of non-economic issues."

    Chicago Teamsters Mull Strike at UPS

    If UPS keeps stonewalling in upcoming bargaining, members of Chicago-area Teamsters Local 705 will take a strike vote in early November, for a possible walkout the week after Thanksgiving. That’s peak season at UPS.

    Stewards greeted this morning’s announcement from Secretary-Treasurer Juan Campos, the union’s principal officer, with “lots of rounds of applause,” said bargaining team member and UPS feeder driver Dave Bernt.

    There’s one bargaining session left, October 25-26, and Bernt said the union is approaching it in good faith.

    “But if the company continues doing what they did in negotiations the last times we met, which was basically just stall and do nothing, that’s the direction we’re going to move,” he said. “We’ll actually try to use our leverage, unlike the IBT.”

    Getting as far as a strike vote doesn’t necessarily mean a strike is likely. Chicago UPSers authorized a strike in 2008, but didn’t walk out.

    To get UPS off the dime, Local 705 would need to show that members are ready to act on the threat. A general membership meeting is set for October 21.

    Teamsters bosses resist calls to reopen UPS contract after 'no' vote

    The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is sticking to its decision to accept a five-year deal with UPS despite union members voting against it.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Despite pleas from officials in Louisville and elsewhere, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters is sticking to its decision to accept a five-year deal labor contract with shipping giant UPS even though union’s members rejected the deal by a 54-to-46 margin in a nationwide vote earlier this month.

    Hundreds of part-time workers at UPS’ Worldport air hub in Louisville are due to get a raise under the contract’s new minimum wage of $13 an hour, up from the current $10.50. But it’s unclear when exactly that will happen, as the union and company still have loose ends to tie before the new labor deal takes effect.

    The union’s national leaders said Oct. 5 that their contract with UPS had been ratified despite the ‘no’ vote. They cited the union’s constitution and the fact that only 44 percent of the 209,043 UPS Teamsters across the country bothered to cast ballots, meaning a higher bar was needed to reject the deal.

    But within the deeply divided union, some regional officials who opposed the contract have called for a return to the bargaining table.
