    Teamsters gaining members at UPS unit - Charleston Gazette

    Since the Teamsters began working to organize 12,600 United Parcel Service of America Inc.'s UPS Freight truck drivers and dockworkers two weeks ago, 2,500 have signed up to join.

    UPS Freight, formerly Overnite Express Inc., is based in Richmond, Va. Repeated union organizing drives at Overnite had failed for more than 50 years, until employees at the company's Indianapolis location voted to join in July 2006.
