Winning $1.3 Million the United Way!

Local 804 members have won a $1.3 million class action lawsuit settlement against UPS for illegally deducting money from employees’ paychecks and giving it to United Way. Within two weeks, notices will be sent out to 6,000 members who were affected. Keep an eye out. You may not even know you were stolen from. 

Under the settlement, United Way gets to keep every penny of the money that was donated. But UPS has to reimburse members up to $1.3 million for unauthorized paycheck deductions. 

“We urge everyone to opt-in to the settlement and get your share of the $1.3 million,” said President Vinnie Perrone. “ Make the company pay for what they did wrong.”

Any money that is not claimed in the settlement will be donated to St. Jude's Hospital and St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital.
