IBT Announces Another Delay on UPS Freight Subcontracting Grievances

October 24, 2011: Ken Hall has announced another delay in the arbitration hearing on the Local 745 Dallas subcontracting grievance. Members have now been waiting for an answer on this issue for over two years.

The company and the union met with the arbitrator in May, and then again on October 18.

The union has presented their witnesses and documentation and the company has begun to present their case but has not concluded.

The date for the next hearing is not set yet.

UPS Freight Teamsters continue to suffer from lay offs, loss of work and the outsourcing of multiple loads on a daily basis in most terminals. If nothing else, this should be a wake up call for all of us that a speedier timeline for arbitration as the last step in the grievance procedure has to be established in the next contract.
