    the progression should not be changed, UPS will try to fire drivers just to save money.

    Pay raises - obviously they are less than the last contract per year.

    Leave the free period alone, if anything, shorten it - this proposal just gives the company more time to abuse peak hires. My facility had ZERO peak hires make book this year, and I know for sure that there were at least 6 positions that were vacated by retirees, death, and resignations in the last 8-12 months. We are working shorthanded every day and there are multiple grievances regarding management doing union work, unacceptable.

    Just finalize a healthcare plan - I'm not voting for a contract that has a healthcare plan that is not positively set.

    Article 22, Section 3
    The company should agree to fill all 20,000 full time 22.3 jobs as has been previously agreed upon and should not be allowed to move a 22.3 job out of the local in which it was created.

    I cannot believe this language didn't make the cut after UPS has been abusing the hell out of it for the last decade.
