Teamsters have won over $100k in grievances this year, we're on set to smash last year's record grievance totals.
Filing grievances is a crucial part of enforcing our contract. Teamsters file grievances when the company fails to uphold their end of the contract.
Contract violations include when supervisors take Teamster work, when drivers are over-worked, when members are sent home before their guaranteed amount of hours, when paychecks are late or short, and many more. These violations are common at UPS and one way to make the company follow the contract is to make them pay the penalties for violations.
If your contractual rights have been violated on the job get with your shop steward or business agent to learn how to enforce your protections.
