I just recieved a survey from my local regarding the upcoming contract. It seems to be gathing information on whether the teamsters should engage in early negotiations with UPS for the next contract and what issues they should talk about. I found it interesting because it talks about forcing UPS into early negotiations, but wouldn't it be to UPS's benefit to start early negotiations and or get a contract ratified long before the 2008 deadline? Did anyone recieve a similar survey? I was kind of dissapointed as it focused on questions about improving the pension versus allowing us to go the 401k route should we so chose. Although I didn't expect that to be an option, but I was a little hopeful about it. Anyways, just seeing if anyone else had recieved a similar survey and wanted their thoughts about it.
