Teamsters Local 710 UPS Bargaining Committee Continues Through Negotiations

Union Holds Firm on Members’ Issues, Signs Retroactive Extension Agreement

MOKENA, ILL. – The Teamsters Local 710 bargaining committee for the Local 710 UPS contract has met with the company for three rounds of bargaining so far.

Teamsters have secured tentative agreements (“T’OK”s) in multiple areas that solidify existing language and practices, but many issues still remain on the table. Last session, the committee focused on a variety of safety issues.

We’ve had a lot of healthy discussions back and forth with the company, but we’ve listened to the proposals from our members and know what’s most important to them. We’re ready to pick up the pace and secure an agreement that this committee can stand behind and be proud to bring back to the members.

Del Schaefer
President & Bargaining Chairman

Since the current contract had an expiration of July 31, 2018, the parties have signed an extension agreement that is retroactive to August 1, 2018. Bargaining is planned to resume next month.

Teamsters Local 710 represents more than 13,000 members across the Midwest, including over 6,000 UPS members, and is an affiliate of Teamsters Joint Council 25, America’s premier labor union for Chicago, Illinois and northwest Indiana.
