Teamsters Will Honor Picket Lines of General Motors' 50,000 UAW Workers

WASHINGTON, Sept. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa about the United Auto Workers' (UAW's) decision to strike at General Motors (GM) tonight.
"Teamsters and the UAW have a decades-long relationship of having each other's back. And that continues with the UAW's notification that it will go out on strike against General Motors at midnight. Our 1.4 million members stand in solidarity with the UAW and will honor their picket lines.
"We laud the UAW for its work to ensure that its GM employees are treated with respect and dignity on the job. At a time when more and more companies are downsizing and shipping jobs out of the U.S., it is imperative that unions fight for their members. Workers should be rewarded for good work with fair wages and benefits. That's what the UAW is demanding."
Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents 1.4 million hardworking men and women throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Visit www.teamster.org for more information. Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/RepublicServicesTeamsters.

Teamsters Local 63 Stands With UFCW

Shortly after the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, representing over 800,000 union workers in Southern California, voted unanimously for sanctions in support of a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) strike, the Executive Board of Teamsters Local 63 expressed their support of the over 60,000 grocery workers who are in contract negotiations with Ralphs, Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions.

Randy Cammack, Secretary-Treasurer for Teamsters Local 63 and President for the Teamsters Joint Council 42, released the following statement:

“Teamsters Local 63 proudly stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters at UFCW, who are fighting for the wages and benefits that they deserve. Our communities depend on our grocery workers and there is no reason why they should not benefit from the profits that they help generate for the corporations who they work for.  If UFCW calls for a strike, we strongly encourage every Teamster to respect the picket line.”

UPS Master Agreement Takes Effect Monday April 29th

UPS Master Agreement Takes Effect Monday April 29th After Successful Ratification of Local 243 Rider. The UPS Master Agreement will take effect at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow, Monday, April 29, after workers in Michigan ratified the last outstanding supplemental agreement (Local 243 Rider) by a margin of 70%.

The national contract will increase wages, protect benefits and create thousands of new full-time jobs. Economic improvements in the contract are retroactive to August 1, 2018. The company has been notified of the ratification and will attempt to implement required raises during the next weekly pay period.

The UPS contract includes wage increases of $4.15 per hour for both full-time and part-time workers over the term of the contract and increases the part-time start rate by $2.50 retroactively to August 1, 2018. All full-time and part-time UPS Teamsters will continue to receive health insurance for the member and their family without paying premiums. The agreement also strengthens grievance enforcement for harassment with a sitting arbitrator and monetary penalties, and a new procedure to make it easier to get on or off the overtime list.

The agreement requires UPS to create 5,000 new full-time jobs during the term of the agreement, including a minimum of 2,000 Article 43 driver jobs, and a new combination driver classification that addresses the changes brought on through the e-commerce revolution.
