Union Jobs Might Be Moved

Thursday, September 6, 2007

According to the Teamsters for a Democratic Union UPS is thinking of moving many Teamster jobs from UPS to UPS Freight, a non-union counterpart of UPS:

If management gets its way in contract negotiations, UPS will soon be diverting packages to UPS Freight, the company’s nonunion freight carrier.

Sources close to the negotiations have told Traffic World, a leading industry publication, that UPS is pushing for work rule changes that would allow them to move packages from its parcel to freight divisions.

Corporate consultants love the idea.

“It’s nonunion. It would be more cost effective,” said one industry expert.

It would also destroy Teamster jobs.
