Conference Call on the UPS Contract

May 6, 2013: Teamsters for a Democratic Union will host a Conference Call for UPS Teamsters to review the proposed UPS contract on Thursday, May 9.

UPS Teamsters have been kept in the dark for months by an information brownout.

On Tuesday, TDU will obtain and post the tentative national agreement. On Thursday, UPS Teamsters and shop stewards will meet on a national conference call to discuss the proposed contract.

UPS Teamsters and shop stewards will report on contract changes on key issues, including: pension, healthcare and retiree healthcare, production harassment, excessive overtime, technology, full-time jobs, subcontracting and more.

We'll review contract highlights and lowlights on the call and take questions and comments from Teamsters. Keep your eyes open as well for upcoming Make UPS Deliver bulletins with contract updates and analysis.

UPS Teamsters will get to vote on the national contract and their supplement (and in some cases a third vote on their local rider).

The TDU Conference Call on the proposed UPS Contract will take place on Thursday, May 9 at 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

You will need a Conference Call code to dial in to the call. Space is limited.
