Members Speak Out on Contract Goals

UPS members speak out on what they're willing to fight for in the next UPS contract.

End Two-Tier 22.4

“We have to get rid of the 22.4 position and make all package drivers RPCDs with equal pay and the same 9.5 rights. Two-tier is a divide and conquer strategy. United, we can end it.”

Ronnie Hunter
Local 391, North Carolina

Part-Time Raises

“UPS can afford to pay part-timers more. The MRAs proved that. We need to win higher wages and contract language that stops UPS from taking away MRA increases.”

Anna Grobe
Local 245, Springfield, Mo.

More Full-Time Jobs

“UPS profits off of part-time throwaway jobs. The constant turnover hurts all of us. Together, we can fight for and win more 22.3 full-time jobs.”

Raul Medina
Local 705, Chicago

Forced Excessive Overtime

“We work overtime five days a week, sometimes 12 hours a day. We don’t need a 6th day of overtime. We need to hold the company accountable so we’re not all overworked.”

Cody Ogden
Local 688, St. Louis

“We’re already pushed to the limit with telematics harassment. UPS needs to understand that inward-facing cameras are a dealbreaker.”

Local 767, Dallas

Ready to Strike If We Have to

“The membership needs to be prepared financially and emotionally for a strike. The company will try to intimidate us, but we can’t be afraid to fight for our future.”

Manny Zertuche
Local 657, San Antonio
