Could someone please explain something to me. I thought that by august 1st 2008 ups had to create 2500 fulltime jobs per previous contract agreement. I understand that a new contract has been ratified etc. , but the new contract does say that within 60 days of contract being ratified that info on new jobs would start being available. The contract was ratified earlier this year. I only raise that last point because we are being told that here in the louisville air district that the jobs wont be created until oct.1st , but ive read where numerous grievances have been filed because jobs werent created by august 1st.I have searched national,central an local contracts and the only thing i have read that would even closely make oct 1st a deadline is the 60 days from ratification date ,if ratification date would have been august 1st + 60 days would be oct 1st. This doesnt really affect me as im already full-time , but i still like to be informed and know whats going on in my area. Every yera we have a rush of 50-75 fulltime jobs in june-july and this year not any new jobs at all. We are being told by union officials that jobs will be created by oct 1st and mgmt just adds to the rumors with no real info. Just rumors of 5-10 jobs in every area imaginable which cant be true. anyone with any idea what is going on please add to it...Thanks.
