Attention Local 396 UPSers, a Settlement in Principle has been reached on the UPS/Teamsters National Master Contract. The UPS/Teamsters Western Region Supplement and the UPS/Teamsters Southwest Package and Sort Rider remain open. Local 396 negotiations regarding the Western Region Supplement will take place on July 9 and 10 and July 16 and 17. Local 396 will be in negotiations regarding the Southwest Package and Sort Rider on July 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20. Local 396 will also be in negotiations during that time for the Local 396 Addendum.
We appreciate your patience while Local 396 finishes negotiations on the Western Region Supplement and the UPS/Teamsters Southwest Package and Sort Rider. Please be aware that there will be outside anti union groups
recommending a no vote on the UPS contract without seeing the terms of the final contract. Thank you for giving your Union Negotiation Committee the support that we need to complete all negotiations before you decide how you vote on the final contract. Once all the contracts have been negotiated, we will schedule meetings with all our UPS members and explain contract improvements. Thank you for your support throughout the negotiating process.
Ron Herrera, Secretary-Treasurer
