UPS Loves Hoffa and Hall: How Do They Show It?

August 17, 2011: On August 12, Ken Hall came to the Earth City hub near St. Louis to campaign, and so UPS management tidied the place up for him.

There are usually a number of nonunion trailers in the yard with UPS packages, including Werner and Con-Way. Before Hall arrived, the trailers were held out of town at the Kingdom City truck stop. Management even told the guards not to allow Werner or Con-Way to come into the yard, and one Con-Way driver had to back out.

So, for 99.9% of the time, it's open season on subcontracting. But to make Hall look good, for a few hours, subcontracting is kept out of sight.

What does that tell you about who management favors in the IBT election?

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
