These are among the first of the Unions Proposals. There is a great divide between our proposals and UPS’s contract proposals. The company wants to roll back decades of Local 804 gains while our committee is fighting to protect and improve members’ lives – both on and off the job. We are closely monitoring the Master Agreement negotiations for areas we may need to further strengthen our 804 Supplement. We will continue to keep the membership informed on the supplemental negotiations
