UPS and UPS Freight: Contract Vote Count

June 20, 2013: Updated 12:30 p.m. The bulk of the UPS and UPS Freight contract ballots were picked up from the post office at 9 a.m. and a second pick-up was made at noon.

The total number of ballots has not been tallied yet. We expect it to be more then 70,000 who voted on the 2007 UPS package contract.

The UPS and UPS Freight ballot envelopes were picked up completely commingled together, due to the International Union's screwing up of the ballot mailings. Some ABF Freight contract ballots were also mixed in with the UPS and UPS Freight ballots and are now being sorted out for that count, which will begin one week from today.

No wonder they have trouble negotiating a good contract, they can't even organize a ballot mailing.

The separation process, using the color-coded return envelopes, continues this afternoon. The ballots have not yet been sorted by local union, nor has there yet been a total count of ballots received.

No ballots will be counted today. Today will be spent sorting envelopes and verifying eligibility; then the ballots will be counted by local union and supplement, perhaps starting tomorrow.

UPS Freight is a separate national contract and will be a separate count by local union.

More information on our observers at the count.

Stay tuned for updates.
