  • Teamsters 89 Wins Additional UPS Feeder Jobs
    Updated On: Feb 13, 2017

    Feb 13, 2017

    Prior to the 2016 peak season, Stewards in the Worldport Feeder Department began a grievance blitz against UPS due to a noticeable increase in the number of contracted carriers moving loads out of the hub. Business Agent Mike Rankin directed Stewards to file a separate grievance for every load that left Worldport via a subcontractor, which ultimately led to approximately 270 grievances being filed over this issue. To settle these grievances, the company agreed to hire additional feeder drivers which will ultimately result in 60 new, full-time feeder driver jobs.

    Teamsters Local 89 would like to give a special thanks to Stewards Josh Belden and Mike Oney for their hard work in resolving this issue and helping us win a fantastic victory for our membership!
