“Awful Truth” Video on UPS Full-Time Jobs Scam

November 7, 2008: This year isn’t the first time UPS management has tried to avoid creating the full-time jobs they promised.

When UPS refused to create the full-time jobs we won in the 1997 strike, filmmaker Michael Moore sent Sal Piro to collect on behalf of working Teamsters.

Today, UPS is at it again. UPS is violating the contract which requires the company to maintain 20,000 Article 22.3 full-time jobs. The company is thousands of jobs short of that figure. UPS is even laying Article 22.3 Teamsters and forcing them back to part-time.

Maybe it’s time for another visit to UPS from Sal! Even better, the International Union should be conducting a national audit of Article 22.3 jobs and forcing the company to create the thousands of missing jobs now!
