March 23, 2009: The national petition drive to make UPS create more full-time times is picking up steam.
UPS is violating Article 22.3 of our contract which requires the company to maintain 20,000 combo jobs nationally. The company is thousands of jobs short of the 20,000 quota—and is eliminating more full-time combo jobs every day.
Petitions are circulating in Baltimore, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Providence, Sacramento, San Diego—and other locals large and small.
The petition calls on the International Union to file a national grievance to make the company create all 20,000 full-time combo jobs that UPS Teamsters are owed under the contract. Click here to learn more about the issue and see how it’s affecting members across the country.
