SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
There has been a great deal of misinformation spread about Teamsters Local 89’s position on the UPS Teamsters National Master Tentative Agreement, so allow us to set the record straight.
Local 89 believes the 2023-2028 tentative agreement is the richest, most historic step forward for UPS members in our union’s history.
This afternoon Teamsters Local 89 reached a Tentative Agreement with UPS for the Louisville Air Rider, which covers all Local 89 members at Worldport.
This new agreement is a tremendous step forward and contains strong language for more Full-Time jobs, improvements to the shuttle system, safety language, additional time off for high senior employees, and much more.
ATTENTION: LOCAL 89 UPS TEAMSTERS
The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has called for a strike authorization vote at UPS – it is extremely important that all members participate in this vote to show UPS we are united to win the contract we deserve.
UPS WORLDPORT: LOUISVILLE AIR RIDER NEGOTIATIONS
Despite days filled with long hours and intense negotiations, Local 89 and UPS remain far apart on several high-profile items such as shuttle compensation and full-time jobs. The Company has repeatedly and stubbornly shown themselves unwilling to make any meaningful movement on these issues.
ATTENTION WORLDPORT TEAMSTERS
This morning, Teamsters Local 89 received official notice from UPS (attached to this post) stating their intention to restructure the 2DA sort at UPS Worldport to be primarily a Sunday through Thursday operation.
