UPS National Negotiations Resume in Florida

October 22, 2012: National negotiations with UPS resume this week in St. Petersburg, Florida. Bargaining is still in its early stages. Reports indicate that the process is moving very slowly.

In bargaining last week, UPS management turned over its bargaining proposals, including a laundry list of concessions. The company also did presentations on SurePost and other operational issues, playing up that the need to compete with FedEx should lead to concessions by the union. 

The union has stated that dealing with management harassment to the union’s satisfaction is a precondition to making progress in bargaining and getting an agreement. The union has demanded that technology cannot be used for discipline, but for the most part the union demands to stop management harassment have not been spelled out. The Union's opening proposal on Article 37, which covers excessive overtime, over-dispatch, over-supervision, 9.5 and 8-hour requests, was blank.
