    What is a 25.13 position?

    710 get healthcare after 9 months now?

    Beards aren't a contractual issue, they are a company policy.

    Trying to make it a contractual issue means the Union would lose something

    as a result. Besides, how many people have skin conditions now.... ?



    The thing I find funny about the hoodies, there is a 35 year old decision

    in the Central region that allows it. In my Local.... the company has handed out

    brown hoodies with the UPS logo on them.

    We've done it in my Local, for at least 10 years.

    This contract is poor to say the least. My advice to all 710 members is to vote it down.

    Nobody asked for your advice, let the members make their own decisions.

    Is it that hard to put it on once on road? Then take it off driving in? I wear a hoodie everyday. I also wear brown socks to PCM then take them off for something more comfortable at my first stop. This ain’t rocket science is it?

    Yes with Illinois about to receive a progressive income tax. No full-time employees will see raise after tax hike. They know it's coming. No 22.3 jobs. 22.4 creates more bs for ups to manipulate. They take day after Thanksgiving from double pay and holiday to straight pay. To many give backs. Our pension still pays the same at 100 per full time year.

What if we vote no at over 75% . And we meet any 50 % total then we shall see. I been waiting for something to vote on it horrible. Vote nada

    Has anyone said that doesn’t happen everywhere? Hoodies have been allowed for a coupe years now, it’s nothing new.

    .70 isn't a raise if state income tax is going up and inflation is 3% approximately. Our area has high property taxes and cost of living is very high here. Compare to most areas. No 22.3 jobs. Many part timers been waiting now that dream is crushed. They created 22.3 20 years ago now they gone. My pension still pays 100 per full time year. That hasn't changed in almost 30 years

    Baboon,

    This contract does not help with your retirement in any way. It barely addresses the contractor issue. It allows for hybrid drivers.(which was voted down by the international). I realize you are weak and fearful(your words) but this is a :censored2: contract. If non union life is better for you go apply at Fed Ex. You’ll never worry about a strike there.

    Kind of like "out of sight, out of mind".


    As far as socks, you can only be forced to wear UPS branded socks with the shorts.

    It's like them saying tee shirts can only be white or brown.


    Not in the Central Region....
