The International Union has instructed every local union to gather proposals from members for the next UPS contract.

The IBT UPS National Negotiating Committee sent out contract proposal forms for the UPS National Master Agreement, and all Supplements and Riders. Forms were also sent out for the UPS Freight Master Agreement.

The deadline for locals to submit contract proposals to the IBT is August 31.

Teamsters United has launched a Teamsters United for a Good UPS Contract campaign, including a Contract Unity Pledge.

“The Contract Unity Pledge is the first step in our campaign to inform and unite UPS Teamsters and to tell UPS and the International Union that we won’t settle short this time,” said Teamsters United leader Fred Zuckerman. 

“If you’re fed up with harassment and givebacks, I’m asking you to sign up Teamsters on this pledge so our message gets heard loud and clear,” Zuckerman said.
