Truck Load Division Ripe for Organizing

May 22, 2012: UPS Freight Teamsters around the country wonder why the UPS Freight Truckload Division isn't part of the union.

Now that the clerks have been organized, it seems obvious that the TL section of the UPS Freight workforce would be the next target to bring into our union.

After all, the slogan for organizing at UPS has been "one company, one union" and these TL drivers can be seen in UPS Freight tractors and that’s the logo on their paychecks.

If you're a UPS Freight TL driver, we want to know your story and the issues you face.
