Local 804 President Villalta has demanded that the Company cease and desist from implementing a mandatory 70-hour workweek for package drivers and has warned management that the Union will take any and all lawful actions to ensure the safety of our members and the general public.
Additionally, the Local 804 negotiation committee has cancelled scheduled December contract negotiation meetings. President Villalta explained, “We are committed to bargaining in good faith, but UPS’s recent actions would make negotiations unproductive at this point. Forcing our members to work excessive hours endangers their safety, upends their lives and poses a threat to public safety. UPS needs to respect our members and our contract.”
