UPS Freight National Grievance Panel: Subcontracting Out Our Work Remains Issue

September 28, 2010: The next meeting of the UPS Freight national grievance panel will be in San Diego on Oct. 13-15.

Article 44 subcontracting grievances remain a big issue. Nineteen cases were either carried over or remain on “committee hold.” These grievances are getting old and are from terminals across the U.S.—Columbus, Seattle, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, Dallas, Boise, and many points in between. There are two new Article 44 cases on the docket from Orlando Local 385 and Newburgh, N.Y. Local 707.

Following the May 2010 panel, union chair Ken Hall said that a grievance out of Dallas Local 745 would be taken to arbitration if it went unresolved by August. We have no update on that promise.

There are 25 new grievances on various issues on the national docket. Click here to download the docket.
