New Contract Delivers Time Off In Chicago

November 14, 2008: In its new contract with UPS, Chicago Local 705 won an additional optional day. Teamsters with more than 30 years also won an additional vacation week.

After giving some drivers the extra optional day, management tried to claim it had made an error and that drivers wouldn’t get the additional day until 2009.

Local 705 stood firm and the company backed down. Thousands of UPS Teamsters in Chicago are now enjoying extra time off this year.
