UPS Teamsters Team Up to Fight Givebacks

October 22, 2007: UPS Teamsters across the country are passing out leaflets and spreading the word to mobilize against the historic givebacks in the proposed UPS contract.

The National Negotiating Committee kept UPS Teamsters in the dark for more than a year about what's being discussed at the bargaining table. Now they are putting their concessionary deal to a vote on an accelerated schedule. Ballots will go out by Oct. 26 and be counted Nov. 15.

The company, the International Union and most local union officials are all selling the proposed contract which gives UPS historic concessions.

But rank-and-file Teamsters are informing members about the givebacks and mobilizing to send our negotiators back to the bargaining table. UPS made more than $4 billion in profits last year. We have not seen the corporation's best offer yet.

The Make UPS Deliver website, launched by Teamsters for a Democratic Union, has been the leading source of information for this growing movement.

While many UPS Teamsters are involved, the TDU UPS network is the only national force in our union that is producing contract bulletins and mobilizing to beat the concessions at UPS and win the contract that members deserve.

That's why so many concerned UPS Teamsters any joining TDU today. Information and unity build power. TDU is providing both to Teamsters at UPS.

Join TDU today to build the national movement against the concessions and to win the contract that members deserve.
