National Grievance Panel All But Canceled

August 22, 2012: Package Division Director Ken Hall has announced that the next and last national grievance panel of the year will be cut to just one day, Oct. 9, to cover all cases from both UPS and UPS Freight.

The national grievance panel normally lasts five days.

Contract violations are up. So why are union officials all but canceling the national grievance panel?

Hall reports that Teamster officers from a number of Supplemental Negotiating committees won't be attending the Grievance Panel at all. If you have a grievance that you are hoping will be heard at the panel, you better check with your Local.
