IBT Calls UPS Locals to meeting on Health Benefits

August 27, 2013: The International Union is holding a meeting for all locals with members in or moving into the Central States TeamCare plan in Chicago with representatives from TeamCare on Sept. 4.

The IBT announcement promises, “updated information about the plan” and “educational materials to take back to your Local Union.”

The only “updated information” that affected UPS Teamsters want to hear is that TeamCare will be matching members’ current benefits. UPS is providing those benefits now and made $4.5 billion last year—and has the money for a maintenance-of-benefits clause.

Following the meeting, the International Union is directing all Locals in the Central Region, Western Pennsylvania, Metro Philadelphia and Philadelphia areas where supplements were voted down to hold meetings with UPS members during the Sept. 7-8 or Sept. 14-15 weekends.

Teamster locals in the West and New Jersey Local 177, where supplements were also rejected, are working on a health plan outside of Central States TeamCare.
