DFW Night Sort to Close; More Full-Time Jobs Threatened

January 10, 2009: UPS will shut down the night sort operations at Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) in February—a move that could eliminate 70 or more full-time Article 22.3 jobs. The midnight sort at the Columbia, S.C., air hub will be shut down around the same time. UPS previously eliminated more than 30 Article 22.3 jobs in Seattle at Boeing Field.

The contract requires UPS to maintain a minimum of 20,000 Article 22.3 full-time jobs nationwide at all times. The company is thousands of jobs short of the required number because positions were never created or have been allowed to go vacant.

No Article 22.3 Teamsters should be laid off unless the company is meeting its obligation to maintain 20,000 full-time combo jobs.

Members have filed grievances demanding that UPS create all 20,000 jobs and pay full backpay to Teamsters who have been laid off or unfairly denied the opportunity to go full-time because of the company’s nationwide violations of Article 22.3.

The next National Grievance panel will be held Feb. 2-5 in Ft. Lauderdale.
