UPS Freight Teamsters: Fed up with Hoffa-Hall?

January 3, 2014: UPS Freight Teamsters have been attacked by their own union leadership in the worst way: the denial of the right to a fair vote.

The question is, what will you—and other Teamsters nationwide—do about it?

The Hoffa-Hall leadership has announced that they will not allow a mail ballot vote on the UPS Freight contract. For decades, this is how all contract votes have been done for UPS package, for freight, for carhaul, airlines, and others.

Instead they have announced they will hold meetings to sell the deal, and then vote right there.

What’s wrong with this picture? Members need time after hearing about the contract to talk it over, and cast an informed vote. And all members—including those who cannot get to a union meeting—deserve the right to vote. And they deserve a vote which can be easily monitored so that all members will accept the result as fair.

Teamster solidarity sent Hoffa and Hall back to UPS management with powerful leverage to win a fair contract. Hoffa and Hall turned their back on their own members for six months, then came up with a dirty trick against them.

If you are fed up with them, don’t just complain, do something about it. Join the growing network of UPS Freight Teamsters working together for change.
