October 22, 2012: The union’s bargaining committee will resume bargaining with UPS Freight management November 12-16, in Washington D.C.
After bargaining last week, the International union issued a press released which quoted union bargaining chair Ken Hall as saying that “a lot of progress” was made at the table.
At a meeting with officers of all affected locals on September 21, Hall stated that UPS Freight has not been profitable, so he would keep union demands modest. In fact, UPS's own financial reports for 2011 and mid-year 2012 reflect the fact that they are happy with UPS Freight's growth and profitability.
UPS Freight Teamsters are building a network of members to have a voice in bargaining. Click here to visit UPSFreightTalk.org, sign up for email updates and have your say.
