UPS Wants Loopholes on Excessive OT Grievances

September 30, 2008: Teamsters in several areas report that management is claiming that “high mileage” and “high density” routes are exempt from Article 37 language.

Management is even saying that drivers on those routes cannot file 9.5 grievances.

In some areas, the company has also argued that they will only pay excessive overtime grievances on 11 percent of their routes because statistically only 11 percent of its routes go over 9.5.

While the company is settling some grievances at the new triple time penalty, management has deadlocked many others.

UPS got enough concessions in the contract. The International Union should not let them use the 9.5 Committee to push through new restrictions before many Teamsters even have a copy of the contract!
