Last Wednesday a few of the IBTs economic proposals submitted to the company were leaked. Package Director Denis T will not be happy this information has been leaked to the members. -The union asked for a $15 starting wage for all new employees. -The union asked for $1 yearly raises and catch-up raises for part-timers (amount unknown). -Pension increases were submitted separately by each supplement. UPS did not like the economic proposals submitted by the union and argued that such numbers would put them out of business. A counter-offer from the company was expected on Thursday's session, but it never came. Perhaps the news of $1.35 billion in record profits in the first quarter disrupted their "going out of business rhetoric."
