Vote No Bites Back

Teamsters in the Eastern Region who Voted No against Hoffa-Hall contract givebacks and benefit cuts voted for Fred Zuckerman and Teamsters United—and not just at UPS.

Freight Teamsters voted against Hoffa-Hall. Bellwether freight locals like Harrisburg Local 776, Charlotte Local 71, and New York Local 707 went for Teamsters United. The vote was closer in New Jersey freight Local 641, but that was the exception.

Carhaul Teamsters went for Teamsters United, too. In the last election, Hoffa-Hall won Buffalo Local 449, the biggest concentration of carhaulers in the East.

This time Fred Zuckerman cruised to victory there with 76% of the vote. To be sure, Freight and UPS Teamsters were also part of the Buffalo stampede. But look for carhaulers, who have rejected contract concessions twice, to go heavily for Teamsters United in the Central.

In the last bargaining round, UPSers in New Jersey, North Carolina, Upstate New York, metro Philadelphia, Central and Western Pennsylvania and New York City voted to reject Hoffa-Hall’s contract givebacks.

The question going into this election was if Vote No would turn into a vote for change. We have our answer.

UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters in the twenty Vote No locals in the East voted for Fred Zuckerman & Teamsters United, by 10,454 to 4,836—a whopping 68 percent.

If your contract is negotiated by Hoffa-Hall, the odds are you voted for Fred Zuckerman. The Vote No movement is fighting back.
