Clerks Ratify Contract
Clerks working at 39 UPS Freight terminals voted overwhelmingly to ratify their recently negotiated contract. It included a 3.5% wage increase retroactive to January 2012 and another 3.5% increase in January 2013.

Locals that have not yet organized UPS Freight clerks are encouraged to do so prior to June 27, 2012 when the card check agreement expires.
There is a one sentence memo of understanding stating that full-time positions will not be eliminated, but no requirement of increasing full-time job opportunities. Part-time casuals, who in some terminals are the majority of the workforce, have no path to full-time status in the contract. That issue should be addressed in the 2013 contract.
