    Default UPS and UPS Freight Supplemental Committees Continue Talks With Company

    National Negotiations Begin Jan. 22

    As the union prepares for UPS and UPS Freight national talks to begin in January, supplemental committees have been meeting over the course of the last two months to exchange proposals and engage in bargaining sessions with the company.

    Out of the roughly 30 supplemental meetings held since October, common issues that have been raised by the company include flexible workweeks and the day after Thanksgiving holiday. Several more supplemental committees are scheduled to meet before the end of the year.

    “The Package Division and the National Negotiating Committee are preparing for national negotiations and we are ready to bring many of the proposals we heard from members to the bargaining table next month,” said Denis Taylor, National Negotiating Committee Co-Chairman and Director of the Teamsters Package Division.

    Default Teamster Negations Begin in West With UPS

    A few weeks late finding this but here it is.

    The Western Region Supplemental Agreement Negotiating Committee began negotiations with UPS. IBT Package Division Western Region Director and Negotiating Committee Chair Andy Marshall and the Western Region Negotiating Committee representing all 11 Western States, began the process of securing a quality contract for our Members.

    The Western Region Supplemental Agreement has some of the strongest language in the nation. "The Company needs to adhere to the language that we currently have", states Andy Marshall. The Western Region Negotiating Committee has successfully demanded that a stenographer be present for the meetings to memorialize both the Union’s and the Company's understanding, interpretation and application of the current contractual language and any newly negotiated language. “The first order of business needs to be clarifying what our existing language means to both sides and how it will be applied, prior to exchanging proposals on any newly negotiated language" said Andy Marshall.

    The pace of these meetings were slow, contentious and deliberate. However, prior to concluding the first negotiating session the parties did exchange their initial proposals. After reviewing the Company's initial proposals, the Western Region Negotiating Committee surmised the direction the Company has charted and it’s clear that the Company is hoping to remove many of the critically important protections currently contained in the Western Supplemental Agreement.

    WSJ: Teamsters Tell UPS No Drones or Driverless Trucks
    The Teamsters union wants to prohibit United Parcel Service Inc. UPS -0.59% from using drones or driverless vehicles to deliver packages.

    That was one of the labor union’s initial demands as it kicked off high-stakes contract talks with UPS this week. The Teamsters also want the parcel giant to eliminate late-night deliveries and add another 10,000 workers to the ranks, among other things.
    The talks are starting amid a changed landscape in the delivery world since the two sides last hammered out an agreement. Over the past five years, online sales have surged, adding extra business for parcel-delivery companies like UPS, FedEx Corp. and the U.S. Postal Service as they deliver billions of packages to homes.

    The surge has also been expensive for the companies, as they have spent billions of dollars to add warehouses, “sortation centers” and technology to handle the increasing volume. At the same time, the labor market for warehouse and delivery workers has tightened, forcing wages higher in many cases.

    Teamsters, UPS Wrap Up First Week of Contract Negotiations
    The Teamsters National Negotiating Committee wrapped up the first week of negotiations today after both sides exchanged initial UPS and UPS Freight contract proposals.

    “This week was for both sides to present their initial non-economic proposals and for both parties to ask questions about their intent,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division. “While these proposals are likely to be amended as negotiations proceed, it was good to finally present the members’ positions. We will reconvene our talks next week in Virginia.”

    While the negotiations have just started, Taylor said the National Negotiating Committee reiterated its resolve to protect members’ interests.

    UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters Taking Active Role As Negotiations Set To Resume February 19

    As the Teamsters National UPS and UPS Freight Negotiating Committees prepare to resume contract negotiations on February 19, members are continuing to take an active role and asking questions.

    More than 20,000 Teamsters joined the UPS and UPS Freight contract negotiations update call on January 28, and scores of members left questions after the call.

    Many of the questions addressed health, welfare and pension benefits, part-time pay, full-time jobs, harassment, excessive overtime, managers taking bargaining unit work and other important topics. Members were able to ask questions and then leave a message with a question after the call for the Division to review. Below are the most frequently asked questions.

    FIRST A BROWNOUT, NOW A CRACKDOWN
    Hoffa’s Package Division has expelled a member of the National Negotiating Committee for breaking the Information Brownout on contract negotiations. Members have a right to know about their contract. Teamsters United is not backing down.
    “The IBT has told us not to communicate to our members about their contract. That will never happen,” said Fred Zuckerman, the leader of Teamsters United and President of Louisville Local 89 which represents more than 10,000 UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters.

    After the last round of contract negotiations, Mike Rankin, Local 89’s representative on the UPS Freight National Negotiating Committee, posted a contract update on Facebook.

    Rankin criticized UPS for pleading poverty and dragging its feet in negotiations. He praised the union’s strong bargaining proposals, saying they would result in a good contract if the IBT will stand behind them – and he promised that he and others would not remain silent if the bargaining proposals were watered down.

    Teamsters Make Further Progress During Third Round of UPS Contract Negotiations

    The Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee continued to make progress on a variety of issues as the third round of contract negotiations with UPS and UPS Freight wrapped up today.

    “We made further progress on a number of non-economic issues,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee. “We look forward to more progress when we resume negotiations next week.”

    Among other issues, the following were on the table this week:

    Article 12, Polygraph/Timeclocks; dealing with members’ rights to receive copies of ODS messages;

    Article 17, Paid For Time; dealing with members’ ability to review hours and rates of pay as well as confirmation and identification of grievance payments;
    The Committee introduced a proposal dealing with Hours of Service for Package Drivers;
    The Committee made further progress on Article 37, Section 1A, Harassment;
    The Committee continued its discussion on the work week; a supplemental issue that the National Committee is coordinating.

    In addition, subcommittees continued to meet in conjunction with the National Committee dealing with topics such as Leave of Absence, Temporary Alternate Work, and the Hazardous Materials Handling Program

    UPS CONTRACT CONFERENCE CALL

    Join Fred Zuckerman and concerned Teamsters for a national conference call on Sunday, March 11. Get an update on national contract negotiations and make plans to build Teamster unity to win a good contract.

    It’s contract time and we need to show the company that we are sticking together as Teamsters.

    Fred Zuckerman will update members on the company and union bargaining proposals. We’ll discuss UPS Teamsters United action plans to inform members about what we’re fighting for—and to send management the message that we are not settling short.

    The UPS Freight contract fight will also be discussed.

    Fifth Week of UPS Negotiations Highlights Excessive Overtime, Harassment, CDL Requirements

    The Teamsters UPS National Negotiating Committee has concluded its fifth week of negotiations and achieved tentative improvements to parts of the contract covering excessive overtime, harassment and other issues. The UPS Freight National Negotiating Committee made progress on CDL training requirements this week.

    “The committee reached tentative agreements on a number of issues,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the union’s UPS Negotiating Committee. “The tentative agreements on particular articles are not final until the entire contract is negotiated, but the committee wants to keep members updated.”

    So far the negotiations have focused on the union’s proposals. The Teamsters and the company have reached tentative agreements on many proposals, including articles 3.1, 3.3, 3.7, 6.4, 8.7, 12, 17 and 37.

    The Safety and Health Committee has reached tentative agreements on Articles 14, Sections 1 and 2; Article 16, Section 4; Article 18, Sections 1, 3, 6, 18.1, 21 and (new section) 28; Article 20, Section 4; Article 35, Section 3.3; and Article 44, Section 1 and 2.

    On Article 37, the union has made significant improvements to Sections (a) harassment, (b) eight-hour days and (c) over 9.5.

    Default Weak 9.5 deal is no solution

    The new 9.5 deal tentatively agreed to in contract negotiations is so weak that UPSers don’t even get back what Hoffa-Hall gave up ten years ago

    Last week, Hoffa’s lead negotiator at UPS, Denis Taylor, reached a tentative agreement on 9.5 rules that are supposed to protect drivers from over-dispatch and excessive overtime.

    Hoffa’s PR team at UPS Rising bragged that Taylor had negotiated “significant improvements” to 9.5. That’s just not true.

    Taylor’s deal on 9.5 is so weak that UPS Teamsters still haven’t won back what Hoffa-Hall gave up ten years ago.
