Volume Up, Time to Demand More Driving Jobs

UPS predicts package volume in the U.S. will grow two to three percent in 2012.
Will growing volume mean more jobs—or just more production harassment? Read the rest …

UPSers Eye Improvements in Supplements

Every UPS Teamster is covered by at least two contracts: the national UPS agreement and their regional supplement. Some Teamsters are even covered by a third agreement: a local rider.
Members have the right to a separate vote on their supplement, as well as a vote on the national contract. TDU fought to win this right; it was put into the IBT Constitution in 1991. Read the rest …

IBT Signals Early Bargaining in the Works at UPS

Speaking at the UPS National Grievance Panel in Florida last week, Ken Hall confirmed the International Union is looking to early contract negotiations with UPS.
Hall, the head of the IBT Package Division and our union’s lead negotiator at UPS, was vague about the timeline, but mentioned October as a possible date for entering early contract negotiations.
The current contract at UPS does not expire until July 31, 2013.

Teamster Pension Divide

UPS Teamsters earn dramatically different pensions depending on the plan they’re in—with the company-controlled UPS Pension Plan in the former Central States areas paying the lowest benefits by far.
The Pension Comparison Chart shows the range and variation of benefits for the great majority of pension plans covering UPS Teamsters.

Part-Time Wage Increase a Must

When Teamster members at our union’s largest and most profitable employer are making less than minimum wage, you know there’s something wrong.
But that’s just what is happening at UPS in Washington where the starting wage for part-timers is 54 cents an hour less than the state minimum wage. The minimum wage in some other states will soon pass the UPS starting wage.

New Threats to UPS Pensions

Speaking at the UPS National Grievance Panel in Florida in early March, Ken Hall confirmed that the International Union is looking at early contract negotiations with UPS.
Protecting our pensions and healthcare has to be a top priority.
UPS has come after our pensions at the bargaining table before—and can be counted on to do so again. We need to be ready for the company’s new threats to our pensions and retirement security.

UPS to Buy TNT Express for $6.77 Billion

UPS’s cash offer of €9.5 ($12.51) per share for TNT — Europe’s second-largest express delivery company behind DHL — comes a month after TNT management turned down a €9 per share offer. The companies remained in talks, assisted by a strengthening dollar.

Global UPS Demands Global Unionism
UPS just made its biggest acquisition ever, buying TNT Express for $6.8 billion. With contract negotiations on the way, the UPS-TNT deal makes it more important for the Teamsters to coordinate with unions on a global scale.
