NY UPSers Win Pension Increases, Full-Time Jobs

UPS Teamsters in New York have approved a new Local 804 supplement that won major improvements over the company’s previous offer.

804-supp-approved_thumb.jpgAfter rejecting the company’s previous contract offer with a 95 percent No Vote, Local 804 members won a $400 pension increase, 110 new full-time 22.3 jobs, and new protections against members being fired for dishonesty.

The new supplement also restores a “Coffee Pay” bonus that is unique to Local 804. Beginning on January 1, 2021, every driver will receive a bonus of 15 minutes per day at the overtime rate of pay after they’ve completed 8½ hours of work.

By the end of the contract, the bonus will be worth over $3,500 a year for drivers at the top of the scale.

None of these improvements were included in the company’s first offer. But then two things happened.

First, members voted by 95 percent to reject the company’s first offer. Then, they elected new local union leadership.

Today, Local 804 members ratified their new supplement by 79% percent. 1724 yes, 441 no.

    Extra break is a good thing.. The “jackass” we have in Central PA (Pat Connors) tell everyone we have the best supplement in the country. Hahahaha. What a joke. He screwed us badly. I am happy for you boys in 804. Good contract.

    Question:
    The “Coffee Pay” is an added fifteen minutes of pay or is it an extra paid break? Either way is great and I want that in my contract, but an extra paid break would be especially great!

    Did they win a pension increase? Or just an inflated promise?

Update: Status of Implementation of UPS National Contract

On April 28, Local 243 will conduct a vote in-person on the Metro Detroit UPS Rider. Since this is the only unratified (or unimposed) rider or supplement remaining, a ratification here would lead to implementation of the national agreement and all supplements.
