We still haven’t heard a peep from Hoffa since UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters Voted No. Now, we know why. A few days after the ballot count, Hoffa and his top advisers skipped town for a 10-day trip to Singapore.
UPS Teamsters Voted No to reject the proposed contract by 55%. See the local-by-local voting results.
The strong No vote delivered a message to UPS Freight management. Our leadership may be cozy with you – but we want a good contract. This is our chance to win the contract we deserve.
By Ken Paff, TDU National Organizer — As we continue to vigorously demand that the Hoffa administration renegotiate, we need to look to the future. We need a new leadership and a new direction. To make that future, we need to understand the past.
After ratifying a national contract that was soundly rejected in a vote by UPSers, Hoffa’s Package Division Director Denis Taylor now also claims half the rejected supplements are ratified.
Hoffa’s Package Division Director Denis Taylor has created massive confusion by announcing that the UPS contract is ratified, even though members Voted No and UPS announced the contract was rejected and negotiations would resume. UPS Teamsters demand majority rule, a return to the bargaining table, and a vote on a new contract offer.
