can UPS drag out negotiations like they did with the pilots?
Then we are fu#ked.
Gonna be a nice retro check
It took 4 years for pilots thats insane....
Because they wouldn’t roll over
Too bad those folks didn’t negotiate for
The s in national IBT leadership will let UPS drag them wherever they’d like.
Why do you think the pilots left the IBT and went on their own.....
Yes and no. There is no "mandatory" finalization date if that is what you are asking.
But you have to understand this. The pilots and the mechanics (yes they worked for a long period of time without a contract) were not "visible" to the public or Wall street. What I mean by that is they were not the "face" of UPS or interacted with everyone outside of UPS.
So you have 3 factors involved in not carrying this out years and years.
1. UPS is not the only IBT union.
2. Continued negative news about the contract NOT being finalized can not be good for the stock price.
3. No way in hell the company wants 250,000 pissed-as-hell drivers out there interacting with the public!
Ballot count will be in October. When this is voted down, I would not expect another vote till maybe February 2019.
I’ve got a feeling it will pass, but what do I know?
It won't pass by legitimate means!
