IBT Advertisement: Rank & File on National Bargaining committees!

July 3, 2013: The IBT, when soliciting members at US Air and American Airlines, advertises that they have rank-and-file negotiating committees for national contracts. How about at UPS and UPS Freight?!

Not a single UPS Freight or Package Teamster is on the national committee, and some supplemental committees shut them out, too.

The Teamster advertising, called “Teamster Bargaining Structure and Process”, is available here.

It is worth reading to see the details in this good bargaining structure.

And it is true: the national bargaining committee at United Airlines consists mainly of rank-and-file mechanics, and is diverse politically.  

It is worth noting that Ron Carey had a diverse UPS national bargaining committee with rank-and-file Teamsters included. And in 1997 we won a historic victory over UPS, giving the entire labor movement a huge boost.

To Hoffa and Hall, suppressing and controlling the rank and file is more important than empowering the rank and file to win.

Not so with TDU. TDU is run by rank and file members like you. Click here to join and get more involved.
