IBT Digest Gives Locals Quick Access to UPS Grievance and Court Cases

November 4, 2004: Teamsters and local officers at UPS often want to know if the issue they have grieved has been decided before—and if so, what the decision was. Just as common is the answer “We don’t know.”

Sometimes we are told we should give up on a grievance because the same issue has already been lost in another case.

Now the international union has provided local unions with a compact disk containing arbitration and court decisions.

The digest of cases goes back to 1968, when just a few locals or regions had arbitration in their contracts. Most of the cases in the digest are more recent, stemming from arbitration provisions won in the national contract in the 1990s.
The digest also cites court cases (including NLRB and EEOC) going back to the 1980s.

The next time your local is unsure whether cases have been won or lost, remind them that they can look it up in the IBT digest

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

As the country honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we remember his often ignored contributions to the labor movement. Dr. King understood the ties between labor rights and civil rights. He gave his life while supporting striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. He spoke firmly against right-to-work laws, saying that “in our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.”
