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.
