10,000 New Teamsters at UPS Freight

April 7, 2008: Our union is now nearly 10,000 members strong at UPS Freight, as members voted this weekend to ratify a new contract that brings them into our union.

This vote comes after years of organizing at UPS Freight that had its ups and downs. Our whole union can be proud of our victory there.

These brothers and sisters are joining our ranks to ensure a better future for themselves and their families.

Five out of every six UPS Freight workers are now Teamsters. Now we have to finish the job and organize UPS Freight coast-to-coast and wall-to-wall.
