January 20, 2012: Hearings on subcontracting at UPS Freight are delayed again—till April 25. That’s according to a memo from Ken Hall released today.
That's over six months since the last arbitration hearing held on October 18, 2011.This on a grievance that has been docketed for over three years. Once again UPS Freight drivers get the short end of the stick.
This is a prime reason for addressing issues of timely grievance resolution in the next contract negotiations. Arbitration may be the last step, but we have to have the authority to make it quicker than a slow crawl.
