Conditions were ripe for best contract ever

Time for change

and we got worse than any of us can imagine. Existing part timers got screwed royally, and working weekends for a discount instead of premium and language that will overwork 22.4 “combo” drivers and screw regular drivers. The raises are junk and hardly keep up with inflation. If we had real cola raises they would maybe be acceptable raises. There is almost nothing good on this contract. There will be a huge push to pass this , but the rank and file have to be outspoken and vigilant about the no vote. I’m losing faith and expect the corrupt IBT to pass this even if the vote is no.

You aren’t kidding that the conditions are ripe for the best contract, it’s unbelievable what’s been presented.

Absolutely the worst contract presented in my almost 30 years with this company.

40 Hours if work is available. WTF is that? Can a RPCD who did not get his/her 40 hours because work was not available displace on Hybrid on Saturday or Sunday? Work will be available then.

And the language could have easily contained something to the effect of: All OT AND EXTRA WORK will be offered to current FT package car drivers first, then to 22.4 drivers and force in reverse. We have 0 drivers in our center on the 9.5 list for a grand total of 0%. Yet; we have about 7 to 9 ( approx.10%) drivers signing up every single week for Saturday Air. We should keep our right to OT.

And this would cut back on excessive OT to every driver; whether they be a RCPD or a Hybrid.

Complete and Utter Sell Out. Hoffa/Taylor/UPS Mgmt are one in the same.

It’s really too bad. The Union should have saved the massive concessions for a future Contract negotiation that’s happening in the middle of an economic recession/depression/crisis when some understanding on the Union’s part might truly be warranted.

Concessions like the current ones? You give those during great economic conditions/times and there’s no turning back from them later.
