Move Over Uber, Here Comes UPS

UPS is moving ahead with plans to hire drivers to make deliveries with their own cars. Our union needs to draw a line in the sand.

UPS is advertising that the company is hiring Personal Vehicle Drivers (PVD) who will be paid $18.75 an hour plus mileage to deliver packages using their own cars.

In other words, “Move over Uber. Here comes UPS!”

This is nuts. The Teamster Package Division sent the company a letter yesterday objecting to its plans to subcontract out union work.

Management responded with a letter to the IBT, saying that the company is moving ahead with its plans anyway.

The company also issued a statement to the press that“(W)e certainly intend to abide by the terms of the (contract) and will use the appropriate dispute resolution process in the event of differences in interpretation.”

In other words, “Management will do what we want. If you don’t like it, grieve it!”

It’s typical UPS and typical of Hoffa to roll over for them.

UPS Teamsters need to stick together and fight for change.
