Local 89 in Louisville sent a request for 1,400 new ballots via fax at 12:00 pm today. These were the amount of members that had not received their ballots as of today. Embarrassingly, the IBT sent the wrong ballots to the members of Local 89 not once, but twice and in some instances a third time. It is no surprise that the IBT had something up their sleeve with this action. Do to the IBTs screw-up, Local 89 members were given an extension to submit their votes. Originally the extension was set for June 22, but after the second and third screw-ups they've been extended to the 26th. Local 89 is home to 8,800 UPS Teamsters, the largest UPS Teamsters local and the leading local of the "Vote NO" movement. Their Local 89 Air Rider is sure to be defeated overwhelmingly. In 2007, a total of only 2,424 Local 89 member voted (less than a quarter); 1,664 YES, 760 NO. Other locals nationwide have been experiencing similar problems with ballots. Members have been requesting thousands of ballots nationwide, not once, but up to five times and they have yet to receive their ballots. Is it that replacement ballots have surpassed the numbers the IBT expected? Its NO surprise the IBT knows that those replacement ballots are NO votes. Rank-and-file members nationwide have begun organizing to file charges against the IBT if the election is lost. In 2007, approximately 70,000 members voted. Its been estimated that anything over 90,000 votes would easily defeat this substandard Tentative Agreement. The IBT is praying for a low turnout.
