General President Sean O’Brien announced changes to the Package Division on a national report to UPS members over Zoom.

“This new structure will enable the package division to capture information that will assist in our upcoming negotiations, streamline our grievance panel systems, swiftly and effectively respond to issues all over the country and provide the necessary assistance to our local unions to resolve issues in a positive manner on behalf our members,” O’Brien said.

The UPS Package Division will have a new structure to support members and our local unions. 

Each region will have International Representatives who will report to the Regional Directors. The International Reps for each region are listed in the chart below.

Local 728 President Matt Higdon will be the Grievance Panel Coordinator. 

Ron Seamans Jr., from Southern California Local 986, will be the CSI Director.

O’Brien also announced a new communication plan to make sure that members’ calls and questions get a quick response. Johnny Sawyer from Virginia Local 822 will be the Package Division Office Coordinator.

An Internal Organizing Program led by Deputy Organizing Director John Palmer will work with local unions in Right-to-work states to sign up new UPS members.

The Package Division is creating a new arbitration database to track and log arbitration decisions and make them easily searchable and accessible. 

The Legal Department will assist in clearing the backlog of national arbitration deadlocks.
