    A Letter of agreement was negotiated with the company in the Western Region. So far only a few locals are part of it. This agreement will allow the company to use inside PTers as PVD drivers at top rate among other things like OT for all vacation hours worked.

    I was told the company was demanding outside PVD and the suspension of 9.5 along with helpers as well but the union refused.

    Here are the locals that are part of this agreement at this time.

    Here is the LOA for anyone that may want to read it and see what may be coming to a local near you.

    As always this was given to me by my steward and asked to circulate it. If I missed any names that need to be redacted please let me know and I'll do it.

    Not enough trucks was the reasoning. If you look at (C) I believe its talked about there.

    We are renting a ton and still don't have enough trucks in our building.

    Well UPS is predicting they will need a lot of help delivering. The Teamsters are making sure that laid off Teamster brothers and sisters are the ones that get paid to do it.

    Charity starts at home, not with the gig economy crowd.

    That could be true. Hadn't really thought of that.

    Yeah that's what a lot of people are thinking here as well. Hell even the people that negotiated it were thinking it as you can see from the second paragraph.

    Are they putting shelves in your rentals?

    eats packages Low elevation homes, hoping for flood.

    They try to. I would much rather prefer they don't and then load them up with less than 80 stops on something like a business route or one that goes up in the hills. They ran dense resi out of them last peak which was a huge *** mistake.

    Or maybe don't crush all of the manual trannies that worked perfectly fine.

    We have a huge parking lot here. Really gets to me why we even use a single Budget truck.

    This is correct. We all know UPS isn't satisfied with just the tip.
  18. no_map_needed

    no_map_needed Knowledge is key, Experience is power.

    A little bit both ways. The union will keep collecting union dues instead of having people stay home collecting fat checks. The company would retain workers because some might not want to come back for peanuts. The union won this one for sure tho.

    We are using retired ups drivers as PVD's. Had one retiree upset because his HOA would not let him use his garage as a drop point. He already leased a huge Nissan van on advice from Edward Jones.
