UPS: Record Profits, Record Concessions

While UPS was making record profits—Hoffa gave the company record concessions. Split wage increases. No more 22.3 jobs. A pension pullout that threatens to bankrupt Central States.

That was all part of cutting a deal to bring UPS Freight into the Teamsters. But instead of doing it the right way, by uniting members to stand up to management, they cut a deal.

A substandard contract—with no Teamster healthcare. No Teamster pension. No work rules. And substandard conditions.

No wonder Hoffa and Ken Hall didn’t want to show up today.

With a record like this, you’re better off staying home, watching March Madness, and hoping the members don’t notice.

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

Teamster members elected a full General Executive Board last November. Now Hoffa refuses to hold regular meetings claiming that “past practice” dictates that he’s not required to hold GEB meetings. This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
