UPS National Grievance Panel Decisions

June 19, 2012: The minutes of the June 2012 quarterly UPS National Grievance Panel are now available for members to review. We encourage UPS Teamsters to look them over, and decide if the national grievance procedure is working for our benefit.

Over 500 cases were docketed, but the vast majority were withdrawn, postponed, put on hold or settled. A handful of cases were heard, and only one minor matter was actually won: requiring managers to wear name tags. Several were deadlocked, involving subcontracting out union work, 9.5 violations and suspending workers for non-cardinal sin allegations. The committee which hears air grievances reported out only four decisions; none were won by the union.

Once again, the National Grievance Panel did not hear a single case on 22.3 full-time job elimination even though locals in every region had 22.3 cases on the docket.

Most grievances are settled locally or regionally, but the national grievance panel is supposed to hear the toughest and most critical issues and set precedents on contract interpretation.
