As members get a chance to see the tentative agreement at UPS Freight, they are saying it fails to measure up.
It does not even measure up to the first contract on some critical issues, including wages.
Paul Boegel, a Local 657 driver in Austin Texas, summed it up: "The proposed contract doesn't add up to enough to vote for it. I plan to vote NO and am organizing in Texas and via the internet to get UPS Freight Teamsters to turn it down. Help me make that happen in your terminal."
UPS Freight members in Louisville Local 89 met last weekend, and then Local 89's Executive Board recommended rejection, because it fails to meet the needs of the members. That is the feedback we are hearing from other union meetings.
