To Members of Local 89 employed in UPS Air District:
As was posted yesterday, Local 89 questions the legitimacy, legal basis and IBT Constitutional authority to force a contract upon the remaining 3 supplements and riders in the way that it did. In response to the IBT’s unprecedented actions, Local 89 has begun the process of consulting with legal experts around the country. Local 89 intends to assemble a legal team to work in conjunction with our in-house counsel. Their collective efforts will be directed toward ascertaining the viability of any legal recourse. Upon completion of this intensive and thorough process, the Local 89 Executive Board and local union bargaining committee will meet to discuss the conclusions and options reached by our legal experts.
Local 89 is committed keep you informed as this matter progresses. Keep checking the Local 89 website, FaceBook, and Twitter for periodic updates.
