Who does the proposed UPS contract really help? One picture tells you all you need to know.
Management is sending out DIAD messages to Teamsters in a desperate get-out-the-vote effort to push through contract givebacks.
Hoffa’s Package Division has been working hand-in-glove with the company. They hired a PR firm to sell members on two-tier 22.4 drivers and other givebacks. But the members weren’t buying what they were selling.
So the company is taking over the Vote Yes effort, including:
- Captive audience meetings on the clock, so you are forced to be there to listen to Vote Yes propaganda.
- Pressuring members, especially new part-timers, to Vote Yes.
- Asking Teamsters, on the clock so they cannot just walk out, to sit at a computer and access management's propaganda website ("my contract impact statement") with management looking on.
When the company is campaigning this hard for a contract, you know it does not serve your interests.
