8 pm Eastern

7 pm Central

6 pm Mountain

5 pm Pacific

Strike authorization vote ballots will be counted on Tuesday, June 5. National contract negotiations resume on June 6.

How to Vote

Every Teamster at UPS and UPS Freight was mailed a strike authorization voting packet. You will need your unique Access Code from that packet to vote.  

It is too late to request a replacement packet. The UPS voting materials packet looked like this. The UPS Freight packet looked like this.

Cast your vote and spread the word.

To vote by phone: Call 1.800.238.7077 or 1‑503‑419‑1110 and enter the Access Code from your packet.

To vote by Internet: Go to: https://es1.BallotPoint.com/UPS or https://es2.BallotPoint.com/UPS  Enter your Access Code. Click LOGIN. Then, follow the directions to cast your vote.

Vote Yes to Reject Contract Givebacks

Voting Yes will send a message to UPS and the National Negotiating Committee that members will not accept givebacks or a weak contract.

A Yes vote does not mean that there will be a strike. Members will have the opportunity to vote on a contract offer from the company.

Some members have asked why they should vote to authorize a strike when they are being kept in the dark about negotiations. But voting No on a strike authorization would be a huge mistake.

A weak Yes vote would send the company the wrong message and reduce our bargaining leverage.

We urge all members to Vote Yes and to talk up the vote with other Teamsters.

Let’s give the IBT maximum bargaining leverage and then demand that they use it to win a good contract!

    The article stated the problem clearly, Members being kept in the dark about the negotiations. It is our contract, there is no reason this information should be kept in the dark. UPS and the Teamsters are equally to blame for this. Of course UPS wants the the negotiations kept under wraps but for the Teamsters to agree to this was a horrible mistake on their part. The little faith I had left in my Teamsters union was and is gone and I am now looking at options to withdraw. Horrible service to your members guys, Great Job!
