UPS Freight: You Can Make It Happen!

June 27, 2013: Following the big contract rejection, over 300 UPS Freight Teamsters joined a national conference call on issues and strategy going forward.

With a resounding NO vote, UPS Freight Teamsters sent Ken Hall and UPS back to the bargaining table. But there is still work to do.

The company needs to see that members are informed, organized and ready to Vote No again if necessary.

Teamsters for a Democratic Union (TDU) is looking for concerned UPS Freight Teamsters who want to work together to win contract improvements. Click here to contact TDU with your questions or to get involved today.

On the call, active members and stewards from across the country raised some big areas for improvement: wages; the line haul division concession; insurance; harassment and enforcement; and pension improvements.

One brother stated that his local officials alleged the only change will be on the line haul division language. We expect more low-ball comments, and even threats, such "you can pound the pavement and you still won't get anything better."

Members need to build on the momentum of the No vote, to keep building solidarity to demand improved language and a far better contract.

We can make changes if we work together.

UPS Freight stewards and activists continue to discuss, as well as organize. Join the conversation. Click here to send a message and to sign up for contract updates.
