The Voting Procedure on the UPS Contract Explained

The balloting materials will be mailed to all UPS Teamsters between September 11-14. The vote count will be on October 5.

members-to-vote-thumb.jpgEach member’s packet will contain a unique, private access code that you will use to vote. You can vote on line, or by phone to a computer. The packet will also contain a sample ballot that will match what you will see on line, and instructions for how to vote on line, or by phone.

Each member will be able to cast two votes: one vote on the all-important National Master Contract, and one vote on your regional or local supplement. Some members will be able to cast a third vote, on a local rider. Your ballot will be keyed to your specific supplement and rider.

The packet will contain all the changes in the national master and supplement that you will be voting on. And it will contain a sales pitch prepared by the PR firm hired by the Hoffa administration.

If do not receive a ballot packet, call your Local Union and request a new PIN. You Local will check your address and confirm your identification by asking you for your Teamster ID (the last 4 digits of your social security number). Then, you will be sent a new PIN so you can vote by text or email.

The ballots will be processed and counted by BallotPoint and your vote will be secret. TDU will designate observers to help monitor the process.

It is absolutely essential that concerned Teamsters cast a vote, and also encourage co-workers to vote. Show them how with your smartphone, talk it up, bring a copy of the sample ballot to work, distribute Vote No leaflets, and build that No Vote!
