Teamsters United has launched a petition drive to demand a fair UPS contract and TDU activists are making plans.
Negotiations pick back up on Monday, March 19. We’re informing and uniting UPS Teamsters to send the company a strong message by passing out palm cards highlighting key issues, and collecting signatures on petitions.
Get involved to show UPS that members are sticking together to demand a contract that addresses our issues.
"In North Carolina, we're making plans for petitioning in a number of UPS terminals across the local. Our goal is to build a contract network of informed and active Teamsters ready to take action, starting with a contract meeting in April."
"I've got a vacation week coming up the first week of April and plan to take a day or two to work on getting the palm cards and petition out in Toledo. Think about your upcoming vacation weeks and plan to do a day of action for the contract campaign in your areas."
"Getting petitions signed is a key job for us the next few weeks. Have a plan for doing as many shifts and buildings as possible. Be sure to have several clipboards, petitions, and pens. A simple card table will help for holding supplies and increases visibility. It's always best to work with at least one partner. That focused effort helps us get Teamster names and numbers so we can get news on the contract out quickly. And standing at the gates or parking lot, shows management that members are mobilizing to win real improvements to the contract."
