Teamsters union keeps 240,000 UPS workers on the job as contract expires " The proposed agreement includes: * The creation of a new “hybrid” class of “22.4” driver/warehouse workers, who will be paid far less than current drivers and are not guaranteed full-time hours. The new position, which the Teamsters union boasted arose from its own proposal, is designed to destroy the last remaining decent-paying full-time jobs at the company and extend part-time “flexibility” from the warehouses to the delivery drivers. * Maintaining permanently low wages for part-time workers who make up more than two-thirds of the UPS workforce. The union boasts that part-time workers’ wages will reach $15.50—itself a poverty-level wage—by 2023. * No limits on forcing drivers to work overtime for up to 70 hours per week during peak season. * No change to the dangerous working conditions caused by endless corporate speed-up demands.
