The Resort Where Hoffa Goes to 'Enforce Our Contract'

December 22, 2010: The UPS National Grievance Committee settles national disputes and other grievances that have been deadlocked at both the local and regional levels. It’s also where some Teamster officials go to golf with management.

All three panels in 2011 are scheduled to be held at resort hotels.

The next UPS National Grievance panel will be held at the Westin Beach Resort in Ft. Lauderdale.

Guests are encouraged to “Pamper yourself at our tranquil spa” and to “Discover local marine life with a snorkeling or scuba expedition, try your hand at deep-sea fishing, or just enjoy a day out on a jet ski or boat”—and to hit the links of course.

A call from TDU to the hotel promptly resulted in an email with five pages of golfing options and the promise that, “Our concierge team would be happy to make any tee time reservations you would like.”

Thanks, we’ll be busy filing grievances.
