    Just curious as to why the Union Halls are closed for Presidents Day, but we still work? Shouldn’t the Union Halls work the same days as us? Tried to drop off a grievance, and I saw on the door that they were observing today’s holiday. I’m not mad, just wondering why.
     
  2. They also represent many other companies besides UPS but yes you are correct that they get lots holidays off that we don't.

    Really guy? That’s really your complaint?

    In all fairness, the OP said he's "not mad"....

    .....but outside of the public sector, I would be interested to know what Teamster negotiated contracts provide for those members being off on a paid holiday for Presidents Day???

    This thread is a valid observation.

    Lots? Doubtful.
    Bet their phones still work on holidays, and evenings, and weekends, and vacations...
     
  6. And they are gone about noon on a nice summer day

    I called our local today and they were working.
     
  9. Take them a ups calendar so they can see and prepare for the holidays they're missing.

  13. The 22.4 BAs will be there soon. Wage cuts abound.
     
  14. So do the (unpaid) stewards.

    Honestly, idk if a good BA wasnt around much as long as they did their job when we needed them.

    We only see the guy when there's hearings or he's up for election.
