The International Union has instructed every local union to gather proposals from members for the next UPS Freight contract.
The IBT UPS National Negotiating Committee sent out contract proposal forms for the UPS Freight National Master Agreement. Forms were also sent out for the UPS Master Agreement and all Supplements and Riders.
The deadline for locals to submit contract proposals to the IBT is August 31.
Click here to read the instructions and contract proposal forms that were faxed to each local. You can fill out the forms with your ideas for proposals, but these forms must be turned in to your local union, not the IBT.
Teamsters United is coordinating with concerned UPS Freight stewards and members to win a good contract.
UPS Freight Teamsters voted down the weak contract negotiated by the Hoffa administration in 2013. But the International Union pushed through another weak contract on a second vote that left key problems in place, including subcontracting, work rules, promotional opportunities for dock workers, and other issues.
If you’re a UPS Freight Teamster that’s concerned about winning a better contract, Teamsters United wants to hear from you.
