NEW ENGLAND TEAMSTERS UPS SUPPLEMENTAL NEGOTIATION UPDATE
Brothers and Sisters,
Thank you for your hard work and dedication to the Teamsters Union; many of you have participated in local union proposal meetings and completed our online surveys. Today we want to update you on our ongoing bargaining with United Parcel Service.
Your bargaining committee is comprised of leaders from every local that represent UPS members in New England. We also have five rank-and-file members that were picked from lists of rank-and-file members provided by the local unions.
We started bargaining on January 17, 18 and 19, 2023. The Union presented a full proposal package to the company. The company has also made multiple proposals during said dates. The Union did not agree to any of the company proposals, and the company has not agreed to any of ours. We have bargaining scheduled for February 14, 15, 16 and March 21, 22 and 23, 2023.
Brothers and Sisters, we will not be agreeing to any concessions, and we demand that United Parcel Service respect our membership and agree to a contract our members will be proud to ratify. Remember, Brothers and Sisters, deadlines make deals, and that is the message for UPS.
Together We Win. Divided We Beg
Your New England Negotiating Committee
