    It appears that the company is using the same negotiating tactics in New England as they are here in the South. Everyone better damn well have a Strike Fund

    Negotiations in New England have been going very slowly. UPS management is demanding many concessions from our members. Teamster leadership across New England will not accept and or agree to any concession proposed by the Company.

    UPS is a profitable company, and we are concerned with our members who work hard day-in and day-out to make this Company the success they are. UPS's bottom line and corporate balance sheets will not compromise the integrity of our members contract during these negotiations. Teamster members built this company and the people performing the labor MUST be recognized and rewarded.

    UPS is not taking these negotiations seriously. This will not be tolerated. Your bargaining committee will continue to fight and improve our UPS Supplement.

    Here are a few facts:

    • Initial Negotiations commenced on 10/30/17

    • We have met seven (7) times in five (5) months. We have
    requested four (4) more dates with no response

    • The Company has yet to respond to 61 percent of our

    • The Company rejected 27 percent of our proposals with
    no counter offer provided

    The Company wants to take away the following:

    • Five (5) consecutive workdays and work a Sunday
    schedule for straight time

    • Eliminate the day after Thanksgiving as a holiday

    • Eliminate 1/52 for vacation earnings

    • Proposed eight-month Casual Drivers further elimination
    of full time permanent jobs

    • Seniority for Workers comp or disability

    • Nine-month discipline window (extending it to 12

    Economics such as Health and Welfare, Pension, and Wages have yet to be discussed

    New England Teamsters demand that UPS stop screwing around and come to the table to bargain fairly. The clock is ticking.

    With the money they are making taking any concessions at this point is a fail on our part. I hope we stand together on this one as I predict it's going to come down to the wire.

    Why are we not hearing anything about negotiations directly from the Union? It’s been weeks since us members have had any update. Why are we being kept in the dark?

    Black Friday is a done deal. The best that we can hope for is an additional option and/or sick day.

    The alternate work week is also a done deal. Yes, working on Sunday and/or a non-consecutive work week would suck, but we have to adapt in order to remain competitive.

    1/52 vacation pay is also a done deal. Most of us get anywhere from 45 to as much as 50 hours on our vacation checks.

    You fools that want a strike clearly have no idea what you would be getting yourselves in to.

    If UPS wants to stay competitive they should probably worry about actually making service and fulfilling their commits first.
