Greetings brothers and sisters of the IBT. I have heard that they're only 2 supplements that have not ratified our contract because of concerns over the health care premiums. Here's my take on this situation, I see no problem with the increase in premiums, that won't affect you until the third year in our contract. How many people belong to the Union in Western PA? There are 250,000 union members working for UPS and my contract that has my pay raise and my retro check attached to it is being held up as it is for the rest of us, If the by laws were different to say that those who ratified the contact get their back pay and raises immediately and those who have voted it down would be the only ones hurting themselves instead of making the rest of us suffer until they can pull their heads from their asses. Like me, I'm sure there are many others that this raise and back pay would help tremendously. But because of a few sour apples in the bunch that didn't get what They think they deserve, the rest of us as a collective body must suffer. Please quit your crying and bitching Western PA and do what's right for us as a whole and stop thinking about just yourselves.
