Teamsters, UPS Agree to Extend Current UPS National Contract

International Brotherhood of Teamsters
June 28, 2013

The Teamsters Union and UPS have agreed to an extension of the current UPS National Master Agreement and all Supplements, Riders and Addenda. The extension does not have a specific end date, but can be terminated by either side with a 30-day notice.

This means that all of the current Agreements will remain in place until the Supplements that did not receive a majority of votes have been re-voted and agreed to. Any increases in wages, pensions and health and welfare contributions that were agreed to in the new National Master Agreement will be made retroactively to August 1, 2013 but will not take effect until the Supplements have been re-voted and agreed to.

In addition, UPS has agreed not to implement the increase in retiree contributions to retiree health insurance on August 1, 2013 as set forth in letters that were sent out to Retirees in December of 2012.

I wouldn't say the Teamsters agreed to this. I would say Hoffa / Hall agreed to this. I have a hard time cosidering them Teamsters at this point.

Hoffa/hall are just a bunch of thieves . they sold us out for cash payouts . this is why they want this contract ratified . locals are going to centers and telling drivers to vote yes knowing this contract is garbage . 

Part timers and full timers need to help each other know whats going on with our national contract if we all stand together and we all understand what's at stake then we will prevail and UPS will have no choice but to take care of their employees like they should!!! VOTE NO! stop this cooperate America attack. I know one thing I am blessed to be a Teamster!!!                           Local 150
