The Mediator has called a meeting between Local 2727 and UPS at the end of May. The pressure is on for "The Company" to bring an end to the stalling of a fair contract. Local 2727 reported that President Combine has sent Scott Davis a letter and he has NOT RESPONDED to the issues that could result in a work stoppage. Why would he rather customers move to FDX than bargain with 1300 loyal and dedicated employees? The tone of the letter, in my opinion, would be start a media blitz, along with UPS Stores info pickets, Air Group info pickets, ATL marching, USA Today and Wall Street Journal paid advertising. It would be better to settle than take a chance of losing customers like in 97. FDX stock has jumped over UPS and leaving it in the dust, why take a chance of making customers leave UPS? This contract dispute, with such a small group of people, who in return provide a valuable service commitment should have Scott Davis showing a sense of urgency to make sure customers are not driven away.
