July is upon us, will we have a contract ready for a vote before July 10th? If we do ,I urge all members to take a serious look at the wage and pensions areas of the contract. It goes without saying that our company is doing well and a strike would not help the employees or the company.If the contract presented is not to your liking, please vote no! A substandard contract is to be avoided. I feel that UPS and the IBT have much to lose if a contract is not presented by the 10th. Volume is down at our center about 2% and volume at others in our region is down 6-7%.The economy is very different than in 1997 and some of the volume decrease is due to this fact! Let's hope for the best for everyone involved!!!
