UPS Freight National Grievance Results

June 14, 2012: The minutes of the national grievance panel for UPS Freight held last
week reveal that of 69 cases docketed, just one was won. A majority of cases, 37 in all,
were referred back to the parties to encourage a settlement.

Other cases were withdrawn (11) or postponed (11), and six were heard and deadlocked.
Most of the deadlocked cases originated from Chicago Local 710, including two over
subcontracting out road work. The award in the winning case was for two hours pay.

Many grievances are settled at the local and regional levels of the grievance system,
and these results only reflect the national panel. But the consistently poor performance
here indicates the need for change, so that the grievance procedure works effectively to
enforce the contract and protect Teamster jobs.

The minutes are available for your review.
