It’s Official. Hoffa Won’t Take Action To Protect Full-Time Jobs.

December 7, 2009: Seventeen locals brought cases to the last national grievance panel charging UPS with violating Article 22.3 of the contract which requires UPS to maintain a minimum of 20,000 full-time combo jobs. These are the full-time jobs we won by striking the company in 1997.

Not a single one of these grievances was heard at the national grievance panel.

It’s well documented that UPS has eliminated thousands of these positions by laying off combo Teamsters and refusing to put up vacant jobs for bid.

That national grievance panel, held at the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa, was the last chance for these grievances to be heard in 2009.
