UPS Contract Campaign: Stop Excessive Overtime!

The Teamsters Union is organizing a nationwide action starting on January 3 against unwanted excessive overtime at UPS. It’s not enough for UPS Teamsters to have jobs that support our families. We need jobs that allow us to see our families!


The International Union is asking RPCDs to sign the 9.5 list and for Teamsters to hold parking lot and leafleting actions the first week of January to show management we’re united against excessive overtime.  

Rally signs, leaflets and other materials have been sent to every local union. Contact your union to volunteer and click here to sign a petition to end excessive overtime from UPS Teamsters United.  

Unite to Stop Excessive Overtime

UPS Teamsters are fed up with forced sixth punches and management violations from 9.5 rights to 8-hour requests. 22.4 drivers don’t even have 9.5 rights. 

The 2023 contract is our chance to win the rights we need, including:

  • No Forced Sixth or Seventh Punches. Sixth punches must be voluntary and paid at time-and-a-half for part-timers.'

  • 9.5 Rights for All Drivers. No more two-tier 22.4. Equal pay and 9.5 rights for all package drivers.

  • Automatic Payment of 9.5 Penalty Pay. Automatic triple time penalty pay without a grievance when we work over 9.5 hours on three days in a week.

  • Right to Bring the Truck Back on the third day we work over 9.5 hours in a week or when management violates an 8-hour request load.

The International Union contract campaign action starting January 3 is our chance to start the year right and show the company that we’re ready to fight for the excessive overtime protections we deserve.

UPS Teamsters United is a grassroots network of Teamster members. We are independent of the IBT and its affiliates. We are Teamsters helping Teamsters win the contract we deserve.
