    So if 705 and 710 push the no vote hard and push it above the 50% then what. We still haven't voted approx 25,000 votes. And was that counted with the 209,000.

    Can someone tell me what 705 and 710 constitution or bylaws say. What if over 50% of our local votes and it goes down or why should we even vote. Wtf.

    No, but they mirror the National language and cherry pick. Looking at those new guys, good luck. They are up there with local 804.

    Spoke to my steward on Friday. He said they are going back to negotiating next week.

    Bull crap. UPS says they have honored the IBT's decision to pass the contract.

    Union dues are going to drop drastically. Hoffa might have just killed the union.

    Cach facility is going to be hurt big time if this passes. We already are understaffed and 80% of new hires don’t last a week. The 20% who do make it are getting a $125-$200 weekly attendance bonus therefore on average they’re making $15-$20/hr. Do you think they will stay when it goes down to $13 an hour? They make it sound like it’s going up from $10.35 to $13, but in actuality it will drastically go down. With Amazon going up to $15/hr and with them having huge facilities nearby...we are screwed.

    Local 710 don't participate with member voting for Master. That's the baffling part about that.

    Local 705 and most of everywhere else will continue using bonuses to get new hires to come in when the new contract is ratified. The union does not think its a problem that a new hire earns a bigger paycheck than a union employee with years of service.
  10. 710 and 705 never have, they also have their own LTL freight contracts

    Mine seems to bounce off of the Master agreement but cherry pick with some writing.

    The book doesn't follows according to the correct facility when comes to wages. Yes, they says that is the wage but never had apply to the facility so basically living by UPS's pay grade standard, including $1 a year increase.
