UPS Teamsters Request Meeting With Ken Hall

UPS stewards have sent a letter to International Union Vice President and Package Division Director Ken Hall to request a meeting before the national grievance panel to deliver thousands of petition signatures and ask the IBT to take action to stop the elimination of full-time combo jobs.

Thousands of UPS Teamsters have signed a petition calling on the International Union to take up a national grievance on the company’s elimination of Article 22.3 full-time jobs at the next national grievance panel in Philadelphia, June 8 to 11.

Our 1997 UPS strike victory won contract language that requires UPS to maintain a minimum of 20,000 combo jobs—full-time jobs that are created by combining 40,000 part-time jobs. Management is violating this language and eliminating full-time combo jobs through layoffs and by not filling vacant positions.

Enforcing the contract would make UPS create thousands of more good full-time jobs.

The letter to Hall requests a meeting before the national grievance panel to deliver the petitions, provide information about full-time job elimination in more than 25 local unions, and discuss what union action can be taken to enforce the contract.
