UPS Teamsters Support Sandy Pope

September 15, 2011: “We need a President that will stand up to UPS. Hoffa is letting the company walk all over the contract.

The grievance panels are a joke. Sandy Pope is our only choice for real change.”

Willie Ford, Local 71 Florence, South Carolina

 

 

 


Surrender on SurePost?

“UPS is sending our work via SurePost to the Post Office while Teamster drivers are being sent home. We need a General President who will fight for Teamster jobs and enforce our contract.”

Mark Day, Local 705, Chicago

 


Fight for Part-Timers and Inside Workers

“Hoffa and Hall have let UPS destroy full-time 22.3 jobs. They sold out part-timers in the contract by freezing starting pay, splitting raises, and making them wait a year for health benefits. We need a President that will fight for us.”

Lawrence Cruz, Local 396 Los Angeles


A Candidate Who Can Win

“Sandy Pope is the only candidate that can beat Hoffa—and that’s what we need. UPS Teamsters aren’t going to waste their vote on Gegare, a candidate who destroyed Teamster pensions and can’t win this election.”

David Thornsberry, Local 89 Louisville, Ky.


Production Harassment

“Production harassment and unfair discipline are at an all-time high. Hoffa is playing politics with the issue, but this is no game. We need change. I’m voting Sandy Pope.”

Keith Gary, Local 804, New York

 


Stop Subcontracting

“Hoffa has had 13 years to do something about subcontracting out our feeder jobs, and it’s just gotten worse. Now at election time, they’re making more empty promises? Feeder drivers who want real leadership can help spread the word for Sandy Pope."

John Youngermann, Local 688 St. Louis
