    Does anyone have any idea what the timeline is for the IBT and UPS to get back to the table and deliver another proposal that we will vote on? The sooner the better! UPS can settle this by scratching their ridiculous LHD idea, giving us the pay raises we deserve (as in keeping pace with inflation or beating it), improving the pension number from $105 to something livable in the future (like $135 or $165) and giving us the exact same healthcare plan as package (meaning no cost).And more sick days
    Pretty simple don't you think?

    Slight correction ... it is UPS Freight, not UPS.
    ​Two different companies, two different business models, two different profitabilities, two different work forces.

    And, it's "contract".

    Just sayin'.

    our pay is fine, we are already the highest paid in the industry,
    they need to get rid of the silly idea of splitting the last years pay bump, get rid of the LHD,bump the pension a little,
    ​and get rid of the 20% pay cut a city driver or dock CDL guy would take if he bids a non cdl bid. like straight dock or jockey.

    your pay is fine now but in five years inflation will overtake what you have gained, not to mention the out of pocket health cost they want you to pay, you have to have at least .70 + cents a year just to keep up, and what are you gonna do when gas prices hits 6.00 dollars a gallon. I want to see a cost of living raise. they need to start over from scratch there is so much that was left out of this contract
