Updated On: Aug 10, 2018

Leaders of local unions that represent UPS Teamsters met on August 9th in Chicago and approved the tentative national agreement, paving the way for members to vote by electronic ballot starting next month.

Regarding the UPS tentative agreement, “Today’s vote was a very strong indication of the support nationwide from local union leaders and it sends the national agreement, regional supplements and riders to the members for a ratification vote,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee. “This agreement provides all our UPS members with tremendous gains in wages, benefits and working conditions and excellent opportunities for part-time workers to gain full-time employment.”

UPS Explanatory Meeting has been scheduled for August 12, 2018 at 9AM at the Teamsters Local 231 hall (1700 North State Street Bellingham, WA). At this meeting, we will be explaining the full contents of all three agreements covering UPS Teamsters at Local 231: the National Master UPS Agreement, the Western Region Supplement, and the Joint Council 28 Rider and Sort Addendum.

It is important to attend the Explanatory Meeting before casting a ballot so that you can hear the full rationale behind every part of the Agreement — directly from the people who negotiated it.

A strong YES vote on the strike authorization shows the Company the power of our solidarity and gives the Negotiating Committees the leverage needed to get theses negotiations moving in the right direction.
