May 15, 2012: The UPS Freight National Grievance Panel meets next on June 5-8 in Providence, Rhode Island.
Members continue to be frustrated by the pitiful pace of the grievance procedure. In just one example, a grievance from Local 391 in North Carolina was filed in February 2010. That's over two years with no decision. It's clear that the next contract has to include a tighter timeline and penalties if members are to have their rights protected.
