Hopefully my several hundred posts on this site wasn't in vain. Honestly, it feels like they were, but if I got through to one person and they went into work and started doing their part on the union side -- my time here was a success. If your local sucks, don't feel alone in your stand, there are agencies outside and above UPS and the Teamsters that sit around just waiting for opportunities to take on workplace issues that a lot of us face everyday. The internet is a very powerful weapon and your answer is usually only a google search away. The contract is all that we have as a collective, it is our workplace Constitution and I really wish more people would treat it as such.
