July 27, 2007: Watch the video that shows how our union won 10,000 full-time jobs, record pension increases and labor’s biggest victory in decades.
Next month, we will celebrate the 10-Year Anniversary of the 1997 UPS Contract Victory—labor’s biggest win in 25 years.
“America’s Victory: the 1997 UPS Strike” reveals the keys to our union’s success—and the strategies we need to put in place to win today.
- Mobilizing Members: Our union’s year-long contract mobilization united Teamsters and paved the way to victory.
- Building Public Support: Our union built public pressure on UPS and won community support that forced image-conscious UPS to meet our demands.
- No Settling Short: UPS’s chief demanded that our union accept the company’s “Last, Best and Final Offer”—but we won record gains by refusing to settle short.
Watch the video that shows how our union can make UPS deliver the contract we deserve in 2008.
