Congratulations to our Local 710 UPS members: You have successfully ratified your new contract!
We had an increased voter turnout from previous contract votes, and we’re pleased to say that the members’ voices were heard. We thank everyone for participating by exercising your right to vote as hardworking union brothers and sisters – You successfully showed UPS the strength of our Union, and that strength means everything as we enforce this contract and when we sit down to negotiate the next one.
We could not have achieved such a strong contract without the determination and solidarity of your Bargaining Committee. Each member of the Committee worked diligently to ensure the members’ voices were heard at the table so that you could vote on a contract of which you can be proud. This ratification solidifies our success as a Union.
Your contract passed by 66.57% with 41.8% of the eligible members voting. Your contract is in effect from August 1, 2018 through July 31, 2023. Monetary improvements are retroactive to August 1, 2018, and members will receive backpay in a timely fashion.
Again, we thank everyone for participating in this contract vote and encouraging your fellow brothers and sisters to vote. We look forward to the next round of negotiations in a few years!
Your Teamsters Local 710 Leadership
