UPS Contract Talks Resume

January 7, 2013: UPS contract negotiations resume this week, Jan. 7-10 in Washington, D.C.

General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall, our union's chief negotiator with UPS, has issued a memorandum to local unions that he is "outraged" at UPS's letter threatening to increase retiree healthcare costs for Teamsters in the company plan.

Hall says the National Negotiating Committee is meeting and formulating a response.

Historic Victories Within Reach This Week

TDU members have organized for decades to completely end the Two-Thirds Rule and increase rank-and-file power in contract negotiations. This week, those changes will become a reality, thanks to united action by the O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United coalition.

The Showdown over Teamster Rights
