    • The ‘Let’s Get America Working!’ campaign seeks to restore a dynamic and prosperous middle class to drive economic growth by helping to advance policy decisions that create and maintain good middle-income jobs, guarantee retirement security, expand access to the American Dream, and ensure that the benefits of the ongoing economic recovery are felt by the many, not just the few.

    • We Are eXPOsing XPO’s Global Greed

      XPO Logistics is a top ten global logistics and transportation company with annual revenue of $15 billion and 89,000 employees, another 10,000 workers classified as independent contractors, and thousands more working for firms that subcontract with XPO. We are the REAL workers at XPO Logistics worldwide exposing the truth about the company’s global greed, illegal wage theft, unsafe conditions, and abhorrent and vicious anti-worker, anti-union tactics. 

      This greed includes mistreating former Con-way Freight workers in the United States who are being kept in the dark about terminal closures and layoffs, and the company’s illegal refusal to bargain contracts and denying their workers’ federally protected right to organize. It also includes port, rail and last-mile drivers around the country and in Southern California fighting wage theft in excess of $200 million because they are misclassified as independent contractors and denied the right to form their union. This greed has caused numerous lawsuits and strikes.  Greed also means an unsafe workplace and mistreating its warehouse employees.

      XPO’s greed extends to Europe beginning with breaking its promise to not layoff any workers for at least 18 months. French workers and the unions have been fighting back against XPO’s disrespect, lies and attempts to slash jobs. Similar struggles are taking place in Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, and across Europe.

      Join the worldwide struggle now! Get involved with this campaign by joining the Facebook group “XPO Exposed.”

      Together, we can eXPOse the company’s global greed and win fairness, respect and dignity for tens of thousands of XPO employees around the world!

    • This webpage provides information on the Teamsters Union’s legislative advocacy at both the federal and state level as well as our field activity to support those policy positions and to get strong labor candidates elected to office.  Among other resources, you will find our federal legislative scorecard, formal statements of policy position and communications to Capitol Hill,  a weekly update on federal legislative happenings, an overview of bills we are tracking at the state level, and quick links to take action on priority issues.

    • Negotiations for the National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) recently concluded and a tentative agreement has been reached. On Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017 representatives from carhaul local unions met in Detroit to endorse the National Agreement and the Central-Southern Supplement, paving the way for members to vote. The Eastern and Western Supplements were approved in 2016, and will not be re-voted. However, all carhaul members will get to exercise their right to vote on the National Agreement and General Monetary Changes.

      Ballots will be mailed out on or about March 10 and are tentatively scheduled to be counted on March 30.

      The tentative agreement is from September 1, 2015, until May 31, 2021.

    • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!

    • On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Southwest Airlines reached an agreement covering more than 300 material specialists. Details of the agreement are available on this webpage, along with materials explaining the components of this contract.

      Ballots will be mailed on or about Wednesday, May 31, 2017. Each member will receive voting instructions and credentials required for voting via mail, along with paper copies of the tentative agreement’s highlights, the tentative agreement, and a copy of the seniority list. Voting will close on June 21, ballots will begin to be counted the same day.  Please continue to check this page for more information, it will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

    • The Teamsters Union represents more than 250,000 members at UPS and UPS Freight. UPS remains an active member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) despite the organization’s anti-worker and anti-union agenda that seeks to undermine and weaken worker protections.

    • This web page provides information on our fight against fast-track legislation. The measure requires Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on secret trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and does not allow such agreements to be amended. It limits Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of such trade deals and lets others decide what’s best for America. The result is fewer good-paying U.S. jobs and unsafe food and products for Americans. Read more to find out why fast track is the wrong track for Teamsters and America.

    • Workers across the country at FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight are standing shoulder to shoulder to form their unions with the Teamsters to win a more secure future. Momentum is building with a first wave of victories with many more to come.

      There is growing worker resentment toward the companies after years of being treated unfairly. While the companies have suddenly made improvements since workers began to organize, workers know that without a legally binding contract the company can take these things away at any time.

      The unfulfilled promises that have been made to drivers and dockworkers over the past decade are coming back to haunt management.

      But now workers are taking action and standing up for themselves by forming their union. It's a different era now. It's Teamster Time! LIKE our Facebook page, here.

  • UPS CONTRACT UPDATE

    UPS CONTRACT UPDATE

    In this update:  Upcoming negotiation, Tuesday-Saturday workweek On 2/18/17 many of your UPS Teamster Shop Stewards along with L-150 UPS Teamster Business Agents Perry Hogan, Dale Wentz and Alan Daurie and L-150 Secretary Treasurer Mario Contreras carpooled or took the van Local 150 rented to go to Modesto to discuss upcoming negotiations for our successor UPS contract and the implementation of a Tuesday-Saturday workweek which is already in the Contract.  A Teamster tip of the hat to these stewards for giving up their Saturday to join with well over 100 other NorCal UPS Teamster Stewards from other Local unions.

    We discussed the likelihood of the upcoming UPS contract negotiations having many big challenges as the Company would likely try to get out of our pensions and health plans and likely attempt to make many changes to adapt to the changing industry needs and competition.  Visit the Teamsters Local 150 website for updated contract and negotiations information.

    The Tuesday-Saturday workweek is in our contract already. 

    The Northern California Supplemental Agreement Article 22 Section 2 Package Car Drivers (a) and (b)

    Page. 45  “(a) The regular scheduled work week shall consist of five (5) consecutive eight (8) hour days, Monday through Friday or Tuesday through Saturday subject to the provisions of (b) below.  (b)  It is agreed that no employee with a seniority date prior to August 1, 2008 will be forced onto a Tuesday through Saturday workweek unless otherwise mutually agreed to or unless the employee bids such workweek in accordance with the bidding procedures set forth in Article 22, Section 2 (a)

    The Northern California Sort Rider Agreement in Article 19-Hours of Work Sections 1 (a) and (b) on page 39 state:

    “(a) Hub Employees and Hub Sorter: The workweek shall be a minimum of five (5) four hour days; Monday through Friday with overtime to be paid for all time worked in excess of six (6) hours. (b) Delivery Center Positioner, Delivery Center Employee and Employees Working in New Sorts:  The workweek shall be a minimum of five (5) three and one half (3 ½) hour days, Monday through Friday, or Tuesday through Saturday with overtime worked in excess of five (5) hours.”

    What is the impact on package drivers:  About 20% of the current routes will be bid Tuesday-Saturday.  The jobs will be done by seniority.    We are concerned that Monday-Friday package drivers will likely find that much of their work was cleaned out on Saturday as Monday work will have been advanced.  It is unknown at this time whether or not the Company will try to advance each days packages or whether some drivers will be asked to

     

    RTO for Monday.   This Tuesday-Saturday work will result in new work and the Company will have to hire additional drivers.  Nobody hired before August 1, 2008 will be forced.

    The impact on part timers: there will be a small amount of Pre-load work and some Twilight work done on the Tuesday-Saturday workweek.  Saturday Air driving will largely disappear.  On Saturday Pre-load should be a full operation but with a much smaller number of people.  On Saturday only the local sort should have some small amount of work doing strictly unload and load for the limited number of pickups

    Why is UPS doing this?  This is being done by the Company reluctantly as they are being forced into this market.  Currently their competition such as Fed Ex, On-Trac and the USPS offers service on these days.  Several of the largest UPS customers have told UPS that if they don’t offer service on these days that they will go to other shippers who do.  It’s no secret that Amazon would like to dump UPS.

    When will this happen?  UPS is rolling this out at various locations on different dates. The projected date by the Company for rollouts in L-150 is June 17th for W. Sac., June 3rd for Rocklin and April 22nd for Cordova.  In Sacramento a typical Monday has 123 routes and with the new Saturday plan there will be 35 on Sat. and 111 on Mon.  In Rocklin a typical Monday has 81 routes and with the new Saturday plan there will be 37 on Saturday and 68 on Monday.  In Cordova a typical Monday has 96 and with the new Saturday plan there will be33 on Saturday and 85 on Monday.  All of these dates and estimated routes are subject to change but that is the current numbers given to us by the Company.

    Your UPS Teamsters Local 150 Business Agents: Perry Hogan, Dale Wentz and Alan Daurie and Teamsters Local 150 Secretary Treasurer Mario Contreras
