Profits and Harassment are Up at UPS

Today, UPS announced third-quarter profits of $1.27 billion after taxes. Profits aren’t the only thing that’s up at UPS. Harassment is up and the number of UPS Teamsters voting against Hoffa is up too!

UPS has made $3.64 billion in just the first 9 months of the year—and that’s before peak.

The company predicts volume of more than 700 million packages during peak, up from last year’s record of 612 million.

UPS Freight revenue was $701 million, down $39 million from one year ago.

Daily package volume went up 5.7% compared to last year and revenue per package increased by .9%.  That means UPS is squeezing more money out of every package—and every Teamster.

Teamsters are behind Brown’s success. They deserve better than nonstop harassment and weak contracts. If you agree, there’s something you can do about it.

1)      Vote Fred Zuckerman Teamsters United slate and elect new International Union leadership that will stand up to UPS.

2)      Share this post with other Teamsters.

3)      Talk to and text Teamsters to remind them to vote.

If you need a ballot, call 844-428-8683 to request a ballot from the Election Supervisor.

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

Teamster members elected a full General Executive Board last November. Now Hoffa refuses to hold regular meetings claiming that “past practice” dictates that he’s not required to hold GEB meetings. This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
