Organizing for a Strong UPS Contract

UPS Teamsters organized to elect new International Union leaders who will stand behind the members and stand up to UPS. We don’t have Hoffa to blame anymore. Now, it’s up to us.

Our contract doesn’t expire until July 31, 2023, but the Teamster campaign to win a good contract begins now.

Contract Survey

Every member will have a chance to speak out on the issues in a contract survey from the International Union.

Contract Proposal Meetings

Every local union will hold a proposal meeting where members can submit and discuss proposals for the national contract and supplements and riders.

Supplemental Negotiations

Separate negotiating teams will meet with UPS management to negotiate each individual supplement and rider. Supplemental negotiations are not expected to begin until after peak. Every supplemental negotiating committee will include rank-and-file Teamsters.

National Negotiations

The national contract will be negotiated by Sean O’Brien and Fred Zuckerman and a team of local union leaders. For the first time since 1997, the National Negotiating Team will also include rank-and-file members.

Get Involved

“We elected new leaders at the International Union. It’s up to members to finish the job. Get involved. Attend meetings and ask questions. Participate in contract actions. United, we win!”

Brandon Bavosa, Local 322, Richmond, Va.



Organizing Members at UPS

“UPS Teamsters United is about organizing in our buildings to win the contract we deserve. When it’s time to take action, we will answer the call.”

Eric Robinson, Local 542, San Diego
