The Washington Post

This week United Parcel Service sent a memo to employees announcing a change in policy for pregnant workers: starting January 1, the company will offer temporary light duty positions not just to workers injured on the job, which is current policy, but to pregnant workers who need it as well.

Len DiGiulio Bob - even though I just found out my wife's union (IATSE #799) reimburses us for out of pocket\co-pays that Teamcare won't pick up I am still not happy!

Bobby Curry I hear you len... its the point of losing so much.. these $15 flu shots wont break me but I keep thinking about that part timer that's only making $90 a week! these co pays and non covered services are really hurting members! 

Len DiGiulio Lying about it made it 100 times worse!
 Bobby Curry Hopefully ppl flood the hall and ibt with calls for improvements

FedEx Ground: Employees or "contractors"

Five days a week for 10 years, Agostino Scalercio left his ouse before 6 a.m., drove to a depot to pick up a truck, and worked a 10-hour shift delivering packages in San Diego. He first worked for Roadyway Package System, a national delivery company whose founders included former United Parcel Service managers, and continued driving trucks when FedEx bought RPS in 1998. FedEx Groung assigned Scalercio a service area. The company, he says, had strict standards about delivery times, the drivers' grooming, truck maintenance, and deadlines for handing in paperwork, and deducted money from his pay to cover the cost of his uniform, truck washings, and the scanner used to log shipments.

Historic Wins at FedEx Freight and Con-way

FedEx Freight workers in Philadelphia voted for this first time to join the Teamsters. Con-way workers in Laredo did the same. How can we build on this momentum?

Shipping packages with United Parcel Service will cost a little bit more starting at the end of this year after the package delivery company just announced its latest rate hike.
