Bargaining Opens for Chicago UPS Contract

February 26, 2013: Teamsters Local 705, which represents some 9,000 UPS Teamsters in the Chicagoland area, has opened bargaining with UPS. Local 705 has a separate contract, and is not part of the national UPS agreement being negotiated.

The powerful Chicago local has a bargaining committee led by secretary  treasurer Juan Campos and other officers, and includes a number of rank and file stewards and two retirees as well.

The initial union and company proposals are posted on the local's website. These proposals will be changed and supplemented as bargaining progresses.
