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.

We stand in solidarity with brothers and sisters in Southeast Michigan in getting a good outcome to their rider.

We stand in solidarity with UPS Teamsters, and all Teamsters, in changing the leadership and direction of our union in 2021, and putting a new negotiating team in place for our next contract

    Hahaha. Keep drinking that cool aid. Now only 75% of full time package car drivers are guaranteed the current top rate. 22.4 – no 9.5 protection, no 8 hour requests and will be worked like a dog for a lower wage.. WOW. Sounds like a good deal to me

    22.4 lower tier workers will be right behind that final vote. Since these workers will be getting full-time pension payments made to them watch how pension funds around the country raise retirement ages, cut accrual rates, and lengthen qualifying years and hour requirements. These 22.4 workers could conceivably make more money if no changes to age and benefit levels and retired with more money per month than working. This is why the ‘Teamsters’ proposed the 22.4’s. More workers getting top full-time pension payments from UPS that after raising retirement ages and cutting benefits for these 22.4’s is a net windfall for the pension systems. I bet you thought the Teamsters didn’t have a plan or reason for these lower tiered workers huh? Is only 25% of the buildings going 22.4? Why do you think hiring full-time drivers have fallen off over the last 3 years? Try 100% in 10-30 years through attrition. Say you saw it here first.

    At least they didn’t pull the same game as Western PA. Western pa heads told their guys to vote down the first contract then told them to vote in the last one that wasn’t as good. Now their pics are all over the internet. Obviously political. Who in Western PA is running for office? That’s the oldest trick in the book. Get your name out there even if it screws your members.

UPS has 283 million reasons to delay retro pay

Ten weeks. That’s the latest word from IBT Package Director Denis Taylor on how long it will take UPS to issue retro checks–money owed to you–following the April 29 implementation of the contract. Taylor reported to officers and agents at the national grievance panel meeting that retro checks are expected in the first pay period in July. There is no report that Taylor attempted to do anything about the stretching out of “6-8 weeks” to 10-11 weeks.
