    BA trying to get stewards to handle the grievances. Wtf is he doing? We routinely go a year before he shows up to handle the backlog of grievances. Ridiculous. Local 391 is a joke!

    Good for you. I didnt like what was going on in my center so I talked to a steward. He agreed to step down. We had a vote and i won the steward position.

    Good Luck.

    I wish you well.

    May you do your Steward job with Integrity.

    It's a lot tougher than it seems at face value. But I'm a year in as a steward. I truly enjoy it.

    I too valued my time as Steward. Simple but far from easy.

    Our center in 391 has over 100 backlogged grievances. No sense of urgency for getting them taken care of

    If Stewards don't have the support of their BAs or grievances are not handled, UPS will walk all over the membership. This all falls on your Eboard. Vote them out

    391 leadership have been known to be Hofficer sissies. Is your BA just not interested in handling or what?

    Can count on 1 hand how many times our BA has been to our center in 5 years.

    We are seeing that now. Our sups brag about not ever seeing our BA.

    That is unacceptable.
    What has been done to attempt to correct this?
    What action are you going to take to address this problem?

    Can your BA say the same about you.... attending Local 391 membership meetings ?

    Hes getting paid by the members to represent the members. Something you seem to forget.

    Maybe if the BA took some initiative and started to show up and get involved the members would get involved.

    Actually I’ve been to way more than he’s been seen at the center. I actually haven’t seen you at those meetings either. I’m guessing that your excuse for not representing our brothers and sisters? You must be one of the BAs? I take my personal time to attend.

    How many times did you bring this issue up on the floor, during "new business" ?

    What was the result ? You've at least done this.... right ?

    IMHO
    General Membership meetings should be attended by Union Members.

    IMHO
    Local Union Officials should frequent UPS facilities.

    My Local Union Officials do.
