    The Fight Is On

    Due to technological advances and new subcontracting schemes by UPS, many good union jobs are at risk. Instead of creating more full time jobs for UPS workers, UPS has repeatedly violated our contract by using Coyote Logistics to subcontract our members feeder work to non-union carriers which kills good union jobs. Teamsters Local 396 has been at the forefront of this issue, filing multiple grievances earlier this year against UPS for subcontracting our work, which is an attempt to weaken our union. Our members’ resolve will be tested, but only through unity will we be able to win a fair contract we deserve.

    The massive number of part time employees and the constant unsustainable production demands that are imposed on current package drivers makes it obvious that UPS must invest in its workforce and create more full time jobs and end the multi-tiered system that currently exists, which does not allow for many employees to move up and succeed within the company.

    Local 396 is the only Local in the nation that has 4 cases deadlocked to arbitration from Nationl Panel regarding the Coyote Logistics Subcontracting issue.

    Why isn't the Feeder subcontracting capital of the United States, Local 89, out there fighting this problem?

    Article 3 Easy coast slug an HOUR overallowed.

    How about the subcontracting allowed by the IBT called "Access Point"?
    That affects many more folks than Coyote Logistics.

    You can be united all you want but it won't make one bit of difference if the people making the deal have already sold you out.

    You can be a bum hole all you want but it won't make one bit of difference if the people you're trying to convince aren't even listening to you.

    Be proud, your union needs atleast a little support to stay in power. Fast forward 5 years and you finally realize something needs to change.
