Dear sisters and brothers, By voting no on the first contract proposal our bargaining power with UPS has increased. This added leverage has allowed UPSers to make improvements to the TeamCare plan beyond what was ratified in the National Agreement. IBT said this was impossible. Changes were made. Changes to the plan which are better for all UPS Teamsters. Let's not stop with health care improvements. Continue to vote no until other critical issues are resolved. These issues are as follows: more full time jobs, eliminate 4 year progression clause, better starting pay for part timers, language that protects feeder drivers, fix the broken grievance procedure and stop harassment and excessive overtime. We have been inundated with health care improvements. They seem to be good improvements but need further review. However, those changes are not the only important points of interest. The issues listed above are just as critical. For the second vote IBT has made health care changes and minor wage increases the FOCAL POINT for the second vote. There is no mention of the other changes that are so very important to all of us. If you remember nothing else from what I've written, remember this, a second no vote will give us leverage to address the other changes we need.
