Local 710 Overturns Termination at UPS Grievance Panel

Teamsters Work Tirelessly to Get Member Back to Work

A team of Teamsters Local 710 representatives and stewards fought hard to successfully return longtime UPS member Jerry Jordan to work recently after he was unfairly discharged.

Jordan’s case was heard before the UPS grievance panel on January 7, with a final ruling in the union’s favor. The Local 710 team worked throughout the entire grievance process for the UPS Feeder Driver, who’s driven for the company for 13 years.

I would like to thank each and every one of the agents and my steward for their help. It is because of their experience and determination to fight hard that I got my job back.

Business Agent Mike Lonero and Steward James Murphy backed Jordan from beginning to end, while agents Del Schaefer and Ron Dillon sat on the panel for the union to join in the fight for his reinstatement.

The Teamsters strive to make sure conditions are fair in the workplace. Local 710 works hard as a team to do that for our members 24/7, enforcing contracts and protecting rights to keep our union strong.
