The proposed UPS contract came under fire at today’s two-person meeting with tough questions about the two-tier 22.4 combination drivers, harassment, excessive overtime and other shortcomings in the proposed deal.

The majority of local officials supported the contract in a voice vote today. But a growing number of Teamster officers are coming out against the contract, including local and Joint Council leaders, members of the National Negotiating Committee, and some IBT Vice Presidents.

Now, the fate of the proposed contract lies with the membership.

UPS Teamsters will vote on the proposed contract by electronic voting.  Every member will be mailed a ballot packet with a secure access code for voting online or by phone in early September, once all of the supplemental negotiations are completed.

But organizing to Vote No and reject the contract has already started.
