photo_710-neil-mckinneyTeamsters Local 710’s newest UPS Business Agent Neil McKinney took off running on Day One with a very successful Local Level Hearing. During his first day on the job, McKinney secured more than $2,000 in pay claims and got a member successfully reinstated.

The hearing included grievances from Evansville, Ind. and Mattoon, Ill. involving a variety of issues from supervisors performing union work to an unjust discharge.

“We’re very excited to have Neil on board to help represent our UPS members,” said fellow Local 710 UPS Business Agent Del Schaefer. “As a steward, he’s always done a fantastic job enforcing the contract and protecting members, and we’re glad to have him extend that experience to help even more of our southern Indiana and Illinois UPS members.”

McKinney has been a Local 710 member for 21 years working as a UPS Package Car Driver out of the Evansville facility. He has served as a steward for the past 17 years and has headed-up several charity projects both at UPS and in his community.

We’re working hard at Local 710 to represent all our members in the best way possible. Neil’s experience along with the work he has already done both on and off the job make him a strong addition to our UPS team.
