2002 Contract ratifacation

Discussion in 'UPS Union Issues' started by CaptainObvious, Mar 26, 2013.

  1. Looking back I don't recall being quite as concerned about both parties reaching an agreement before that contract expired. Maybe it was because it had only been 5 years since we had gone on strike not 16 and a lot closer to retirement........I don't know?

    I'm still confident both sides will reach a tentative agreement before July 31st. But it may take longer than most of us would like and may require a strike authorization as it did on 2002 to "get the ball rolling".

    STAY STRONG BROTHERS and SISTERS!!!
