Brothers and Sisters, Please contact your business agent and find out the latest on our contract dispute with UPS. Local 2727 met with UPSCO in Washing D.C. this week and the Mediator has set us to be released from mediation after the April talks. The 4 year contract dispute could cause a service disruption, like in 1997. The information will be coming from the IBT from Washington DC, not local union reps or business agents. Finally the UPS Management Pilots are trying to join the union pilots in their union to protect them from UPS. Have you ever heard a sup or manager say "I wish I was in the union?" Why would a sup that makes 330k a year want to join a union ? Why would a pilot manager that makes 380k a year want to join a union? Well go to the the IPA.org or airlinepilotcentral and find out for yourself. Thanks for all the support from our brothers and sisters from the ground side, we will again return the favor in 2013 when UPS wants you to take a pay cut and pay for health care. We united in 1997 and will unite to keep our jobs.
