On Dec. 15th Local 2727 and UPS V.P. of Labor, Brian McCabe will meet in Washington. The meeting will consist of members of the NMB and Teamster Airline President Captain Dave Borne. The topic will be why UPS is not bargaining (and I use that term loosely) in good faith. The NMB which has been overseeing the contract talks (for a LONG TIME) has grown tired of UPS not showing a "sense of urgency" to wrap up three years of talks for an expired contract. The Airline Mechanics have provided UPS with a safety record that is the envy of Airlines throughout the world. Members are providing a valuable service commitment that ensures UPS Aircraft fly around the world in a safe, on-time scheldule that ensures customers needs are met, which in terms PROFITS the company. Three years with no benefit or wage increase while Grade 20's have filled their pockets, ALL mgt loaded up with MIP, and the company has reaped records profits (even though the make many bad business decisions) has the everyone growing tired of this type of treatment toward people that are ensuring the company continues to prosper.
