Oct 08, 2018 - PREAMBLE – Teamsters Local 89 completely opposes the IBT’s decision to ratify and implement the UPS Contract. It is a vile, reprehensible, and abhorrent act that will damage the very foundation of our Union for decades to come. This action by the IBT will haunt the Teamsters and the Labor Movement and is a betrayal of everything we stand for.
Denis Taylor, chief-negotiator for the IBT under General President Hoffa, announced yesterday in a meeting with UPS Local Unions across the country that he intends to implement the UPS National Master Agreement (and presumably all supplements and riders) if the contract is rejected by less than a 2/3rds majority.
Local 89 UPS and UPS Freight members:
In an email sent to Teamsters Local 89 the IBT informed us that the deadline to request a REPLACEMENT BALLOT is Thursday, October 4th at 5PM EST. The deadline to VOTE on the contract is Friday, October 5th at 1PM EST.
The vote count for the UPS and UPS Freight contracts will take place on Friday, October 5th at 8PM EST.
On September 9, 2018 the Local 89 membership employed at Allied Ready Mix voted decisively to reject the Company’s Last, Best, & Final offer. This was not the first time the membership had expressed its collective disapproval with the Company’s proposed contract terms.

This morning the Company contacted and met with President Fred Zuckerman and confirmed that they will honor the 60% Short-Term Disability for Full-Time workers at Worldport (with no cap on the 60%) that our Committee negotiated.
