Local 804 Members Make UPS Deliver

While other UPS Teamsters were fighting concessions, Local 804 members won a $400 pension increase, 150 new full-time jobs and grievance procedure reform.

Local 804 launched a contract campaign a year before contract negotiations began. 

They formed a Contract Action Team of stewards and volunteers tasked with keeping members informed and involved—with regular contract bulletins, parking lot meetings, and rallies. Members wore stickers and posted placards in their windshields.

The majority of the Local 804 bargaining committee were stewards and members and they participated in all negotiations.

More than 3,000 members filled out a contract survey that the Contract Action Team distributed in parking lot meetings at every building. The local organized sticker days, parking lot meetings, contract rallies, and other actions.

It worked. In a record turnout for a contract vote, members approved their new UPS supplement and won a $400 pension increase, 150 new full-time jobs, a new grievance procedure and other contract improvements.
