UPS National Grievance Panel Set for March

February 21, 2014: The UPS National Grievance panel will meet in Fort Lauderdale, March 3-6. 

The National Grievance Panel Docket is a whopping 116 pages. Subcontracting, the failure of UPS to post and replace full-time 22.3 jobs, and supervisors working are some of the most common violations cited.

The Air Committee Docket is overloaded with grievances filed by locals across the country that management is directing Air Drivers to pick up ground packages, but refusing to pay ground rate as required in the contract.

These grievances have long been stonewalled by a “Committee Hold” that has blocked them from being heard. A grievance from Nashville Local 480 asks point blank if the Hoffa administration cut a deal with UPS corporate to let management use Air Drivers to pick up ground packages. See page 2 of the Air Committee Docket.

TDU makes the docket of grievance panel cases available to help stewards and members enforce the contract.

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