UPS Freight National Contract Rejected!

June 23, 2013: The early trend in the voting on the national UPS Freight Contract shows that rank and file Teamsters are delivering a big NO on the tentative agreement.

The two-tier deal to create "Line Haul" drivers at essentially nonunion wages and conditions has been rejected. The inadequate wages and pension improvements have been rejected.

Teamsters at UPS Freight have taken an important step by standing together in solidarity.

The momentum for a good contract has to keep building.

UPS Freight stewards and activists are discussing what needs to be won in the contract. Join the conversation. Click here to send a message and to sign up for contract updates.
