No Answer from Hoffa-Hall on UPS Freight Subcontracting

Teamsters speak out on runaway subcontracting at UPS Freight. 

 

Non-union independent subcontractors line the dock at the UPS Freight terminal in South Holland, Illinois waiting for freight. Local 710 Teamsters sit at home without work, waiting to be dispatched.

It’s a familiar scene to UPS Freight Teamsters who have been sold out by Hoffa-Hall.

“We have seen every single well documented subcontracting grievance lose at the regional and national panels. Road drivers sit at home while subcontractors pull our loads...and Hoffa and Hall fiddle while Rome burns down around our ears.”

George Stokes, Local 81, Portland, Ore.

“When I got a job at UPS Freight, I thought I hit the lottery. Now as they constantly use contractors, I’m sitting home wondering how to pay the bills. We desperately need a new Teamster leadership to help us take on the bully on the playground—UPS Freight management—and give us a fair fight.”

Brandon Curcio, Local 509, Gaffney, S.C.

    I’m glad that you used my photo, but asking first and photo credit would have been nice… At least an honorable mention!?!

    They are doing the same thing in Memphis, Tn. Our road drivers are having their runs cut and guys at the bottom of the board are only working 2 to 3 days a week. The contractors are running everyday, and run almost all the freight on the weekend. This is a sad place.
