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.

Thanks for quoting from a Socialist website. Better to just leave the politics out of it so the IBT can't blame the No results on politics.

“Poverty level wage...”

Gtfo of here with that crap. It’s a PART TIME job WITH very good health insurance AND a damn pension! At $15/hour, it’s the greatest pt job ever.

Greatest part time job would be working security at a strip club. BTW how many part time UPSers actually stay long enough to enjoy their pension benefits?

In the Red states - yes, definiitely

In the Blue states - probably is pretty close to poverty level.

However, it's silly to be talking about a part-time job and poverty level.
It's part time.
If you ran the numbers for a 9 hour day you come up with $35000 per year.

Is that poverty level?

In California it is. Housing inflation has gone from crazy to absolutely insane. That's why I'm for a wage increases to be pinned to inflation.

But this is an issue that is inherently political. Workers have every right to, and should be exposing themselves to politics outside of the Unions and the two party system.

Give me a *** damned break.
I'm supposed to be thankful for health insurance? As far as I'm concerned they owe us health insurance considering that all of us WILL get injured doing the :censored2: that they ask us to do every day.

That's what workers comp is for not insurance. Insurance pays for your wife's medication, your kids check ups
