DHL Proposed Change of Operations

November 25, 2008: On Nov. 18, DHL presented the IBT with a change of operations proposal that will severely reduce Teamster jobs covered under the recently ratified national contract.

The company estimates that 420 to 550 Teamster jobs will remain under the DHL agreement, which is a loss of over 90 percent. The proposal will be heard in Sarasota, Fla. on Dec. 1-2.

The proposal includes a severance package that would provide up to 11 weeks wages and continue health coverage for 3 months, following acceptance of the offer for those who accept the buy out and quit their job.
