SIGN THE PETITION
Joint Council #37 members and retirees participating in the Western Conference of Teamsters Pension Trust are encouraged to sign a petition in opposition to the GROW (Give Retirement Options to Workers) ACT (H.R. 4997). This legislation weakens the entire multiemployer pension system, putting our retirement security, and that of millions of other Americans, at risk. Please click on the following link, print and sign it and get to the Local, we'll forward it.

The National Master UPS Agreement, the Western
Supplement and the JC37 Riders have all been essentially ratified on October
5, 2018. The IBT Constitution with language decades old, dictated the
ratification since less than 50% of eligible voters actually voted and a
2/3's majority wasn't reached to reject the Agreement. With that being said,
nothing will be implemented untill all Supplements and Riders still pending
are also ratified. Once that ocurrs, everyone will be notified and the new
language and retro pay back to August 1, 2018 will ocurr.

SAFETY COMMITTEE CANCELLATION NOTICE
On December 22, 2017, UPS unilaterally implemented an eight (8) day / seventy (70) hour workweek for package drivers in Teamsters Local Union No. 324’s jurisdiction. A letter was sent to management at 11:15 AM on December 23, 2017 as official notice that effective immediately, all applicable safety committees in Local 324’s jurisdiction (Salem, Corvallis, Newport) were eliminated with respect to bargaining unit members’ participation. Under NO circumstances will any Local 324 member participate going forward in any manner whatsoever. This Notice was given with the approval of the Union Co-Chair of the Teamsters UPS National Negotiating Committee in accordance with Article 18 of the National Master UPS Agreement and is final and binding.
The Company was given advance notice that this action would result if the new workweek was implemented and was also given ample opportunity to bargain in good faith over the matter as it is clearly a mandatory subject of bargaining. It is clear that the Company is no longer committed to the safety and well-being of our members. It's important that if anyone sees a safety related issue such as equipment problems, poor job setup, understaffing, egress, etc., immediately notify your management team! Document what the safety issue is, who you spoke to including date and time. If it's not an emergency, give them no longer than five days to respond to your concern(s). If you are not satisfied with management's response or they fail to respond, you can file a general health and safety grievance under Article 18 of the National Master UPS Agreement.
