UPS Freight National Panel Set for June 9-11 Subcontracting Still on the Table

June 1, 2010: Teamster representatives will meet with UPS Freight management in Providence, Rhode Island for the quarterly national panel on June 9-11.

Many Article 44 subcontracting grievances are still on the table. Tampa Local 79, Phoenix Local 104, Columbus Local 413, Nashville Local 480 and Reno Local 533 all have cases that were delayed from previous dockets.

Cases on “committee hold” addressing Article 44 remain from North Carolina Local 61, Phoenix Local 104, Seattle Local 174, Orlando Local 385, Boise Local 483, South Carolina Local 509, New York Local 707, Dallas Local 745, and Miami Local 769.

There are new Article 44 cases from Seattle Local 174, Jacksonville Local 512, and Harrisburg, Pa., Local 776.

Grievance Deadlocked

At the most recent national panel in March 2010, the panel deadlocked a grievance from Dallas Local 745 that challenged the use of rail. In a press release following the March panel, Ken Hall, the International Vice President in charge of contract enforcement at UPS Freight, said the national committee is doing “an outstanding job” on subcontracting, and the lack of progress is “absolutely not their fault.”

With the June panel, Teamster members have another opportunity to judge the state of progress on addressing key issues at UPS Freight.
