May 30, 2013: The ballots for the UPS national contract are out, and some members received them today. In the next few days they will be received across the country.
Now is the time to talk about the contract, distribute information, and encourage fellow Teamsters to vote.
Your access to complete contract coverage and leaflets are available here. Don't just get the PR from the IBT, get the information and make your own decision.
The vote count will be conducted by an independent supervisor. Rank-and-file Teamsters will observe the counting of the ballots.
You can read the IBT's notice of contract referendum here. Note that duplicate ballots can be requested through your local union, which can fax requests to the IBT on or after June 7. If you don't get a ballot, or need a duplicate, be sure to contact your local union.
