Ken Hall's Confusion

September 6, 2013: Ken Hall says "confusion over healthcare" caused members to Vote No and reject a record number of UPS contract supplements.

What exactly does Hall think members were confused about?  Members voted No to stop healthcare cuts and fight to protect their benefits.

Hall made his statement on a conference call on Thursday night with shop stewards, saying, "I understand your supplements were voted down because of 'confusion about healthcare.'"

Hall claimed they planned to improve TeamCare all along, saying, "We anticipated but couldn't commit to" the TeamCare improvements until after the national contract was approved.

Some local officers have also started repeating this ridiculous claim. It's an insult to members' intelligence.

With UPS making $4.5 billion, Hoffa-Hall gave them concessions and agreed to healthcare cuts.

The Vote No movement forced them to reverse many of these cuts and improve TeamCare benefits.

Ken Hall is the one confused about TeamCare, not Teamster members.

This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
