compost did not mention health insurance in his presentation about the contract. At least until he was asked about teamcare. He told us there were three option & brown wasn't one. He had to be asked again because it was barely audible under his breath. When he was asked if this meant 705 members wouldn't have ups insurance he agreed.

Don't be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. Your livelihood should be your passion and your passion should be protected at any cost.

From the first issue of the UPSurge newspaper September 1975. Still a good program to organize around.

The rank-and-file group UPSurge had an impact far beyond its size--and its legacy can still be felt at UPS today.

Last I heard the company doesn't want to create any 22.3 jobs, I have heard they don't want to give us the 80 jobs they owe us. I heard the local 705 wants 250 22.3 & stronger layoff protection. I heard the company proposed the same raises as the national which was $3.90 over 5 years. We need $4.40 just to break even with inflation, not to mention our share in the increased productivity. I heard they disrespected the rank n file on the negotiation committee by not giving them all the info, only to the officials. I heard ups still hasn't given the full proposal.
 If the companies playing hardball, the local should be mobilizing the membership. they could flier after the negotiations updating the membership, passing out stickers, t-shirts. Oh thats what were doing. escalating actions rallys, ect. Preparing the membership for a strike if necessary.
I'm saying the local 705 leadership should prepare by mobilizing the membership. That is what is done to get a decent contract. Only so much can be done behind closed doors. What we are looking at is a worse contract. The highpoint was 1997. Each contract was progressively worse under the misleadership of jrhoffa. We tended to get better than the national on minor issues but tended to get stuck with the major concessions. The raises have been getting progressively smaller over time, when they actually should be getting bigger. The length of time it takes to get up to full time pay keeps increasing. Now they are attacking our health insurance. Be prepared for a sales job on teamcrap which is inferior to what we have now.
