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.
