Can Hoffa and Hall Win Subcontracting Grievances?

October 22, 2010: Two grievances addressing Article 44 subcontracting language were deadlocked at the recent UPS Freight national grievance meeting held in San Diego.

The grievance from Reno Nevada Local 533 involves canceling a bid run and awarding the work to the non-union carrier Werner. The other, out of New York Local 707, involves management assigning road work to rail carriers and Evans Trucking. The contract calls for these grievances to go to arbitration if they cannot be settled following the deadlock.

The committee heard 15 grievances at the Hilton San Diego Resort Hotel. Three were deadlocked. Four were won by the union, five by management and three were referred back to the parties. The minutes also report eight grievances were settled or withdrawn. Twelve were postponed and 27 were put on committee hold.
