Local 804 negotiators met with UPS reps on March 14 and 15, where the company rejected union proposals addressing several issues, including excessive overtime, double-time all year round for Sunday work, and an extra holiday.
UPS also rejected union proposals on:
- Extra sick time
- Vacation time
- Shortening the Free Period to attain seniority
When the company co-chair asked about the Local's position on a 4 in 10 hour work week, the union chair responded that this Local and its committee have no interest in entering a discussion on the topic.
Your committee will continue to stand firm to defend and advance the interests of Local 804 members. The next session is scheduled for May. Stay tuned.
