UPS: Record Profits, Record Concessions

While UPS was making record profits—Hoffa gave the company record concessions. Split wage increases. No more 22.3 jobs. A pension pullout that threatens to bankrupt Central States.

That was all part of cutting a deal to bring UPS Freight into the Teamsters. But instead of doing it the right way, by uniting members to stand up to management, they cut a deal.

A substandard contract—with no Teamster healthcare. No Teamster pension. No work rules. And substandard conditions.

No wonder Hoffa and Ken Hall didn’t want to show up today.

With a record like this, you’re better off staying home, watching March Madness, and hoping the members don’t notice.
