UPS Teamsters: Share Contract Enforcement Strategies

“The TDU Convention is our chance to compare notes with UPS Teamsters from across the country.

“I’m looking forward to sharing strategies on how we can protect members from production harassment and unfair discipline. I also want to hear how UPS is using new technology, like telematics.”

Mark Day, Local 705 Package Car Steward, Chicago


Win Stronger Contracts

“A group of us will be coming out to the TDU Convention together—and we can’t wait.

“TDU workshops in Vermont have already helped give us tools to unite the members and get ready for contract bargaining.

“We’re looking forward to meeting Teamsters from across the country and getting more training on how to win a strong contract and enforce our rights.”

Scott Ranney, Bus Driver, CCTA, Local 597, Vermont
