    Teamsters Union Faces Revolt From Members Over UPS Contracts - Huffpost

    Local unions in Pennsylvania say their national leaders seek to implement an agreement they voted down.

    When UPS workers in western Pennsylvania held a vote on their new collective bargaining agreement earlier this year, 96 percent of them voted against it and told their union, the Teamsters, to go back to the bargaining table to get a better deal.

    But it appears union leadership plans to implement the contract anyway.

    “Everybody’s outraged,” said Gary Piso, a UPS driver in Pittsburgh and trustee for his local, which is one of nine Teamsters affiliates covered by the contract in Pennsylvania.
