UPS Freight National Grievance Panel

March 22, 2011: Meeting in Ft. Lauderdale March 9-11, the Teamsters National UPS Freight Grievance Panel addressed 31 grievances.

Three pertained to Article 44 subcontracting and were denied. All other Article 44 grievances remained on “committee hold,” including twelve new ones added at this meeting. Two addressing sleeper bid issues were deadlocked.

Over all, the grievant and union won six grievances, the company won ten, seven were deadlocked, and five were referred back.

Deadlocked grievances go to Ken Hall and the IBT to determine whether or not to take them to arbitration. Nearly three years into the contract, there have been no arbitration decisions related to deadlocked UPS Freight grievances.
