    • The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is closely monitoring the global health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Working with other unions, public health officials and other experts in our Safety and Health Department, the Teamsters Union is focused on providing our affiliate locals, 1.4 million members, and staff with the most up-to-date information and resources to help everyone in this difficult time. 

      Many Teamster members across multiple industries are seeing the effects of the widespread transmission of the disease caused by the virus, known as COVID-19. These workers are at increased risk if they frequently interact with potentially infected or infected individuals.

    • On Tuesday, November 12, 2019, Dean Foods filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It’s important to note that many companies file Chapter 11 in an effort to reorganize their debt and capital structure to facilitate a sale to a strategic/industry buyer or to a financial buyer with the goal to continue operating its core lines of business – and one of those options appears to be the case here.   

      The Teamsters Dairy Conference will continue to update Local Unions and our nearly 5,000 Teamster members working at Dean Foods on key developments in the bankruptcy case. We will post relevant newsletters, articles and key dates in this space.

    • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!

  • Package Car Driver 9.5 Guidelines
    Updated On: May 28, 2019

    All UPS Package Car Drivers in Local 776’s Jurisdiction: With the ratification of the new collective bargaining agreement there are important changes in the implementation of 9.5 language to reduce workdays below nine and one half (9.5) hours per day for those who wish to be covered by these provisions. The pertinent language of Article 37 states:

    “The Union shall circulate and collect the names of package drivers who wish to be covered by the provisions of this Section twice each year. These lists shall be provided to the Company by January 5th and June 5th of each year. The Employer shall make a reasonable effort to reduce package car drivers’ workdays below nine and one half (9.5) hours per day for those on the list”.

    Local 776 has provided Union Stewards in each package car operating center a form to use for the above stated purpose. Any driver wishing to utilize the 9.5 provisions of the agreement must do so on this form. See the form example below:

    The language of Article 37 further states:

    “Employees within the full-time driver classification shall be eligible for the protection of this Section provided: (1) the employee covers a route for a full week; (2) the employee bids or is assigned to cover a route for a full week but is prevented from completing that bid or assignment due to reassignment by the Employer; or (3) an employee with four (4) years of seniority as a full-time package driver.”

    “The “opt-in” lists provided by the Union shall become effective on January 15th and June 15th. A driver may add or delete his/her name from the list at any time, with one week’s notice to the Employer”.

    Local 776 is implementing this process to provide all package car drivers with a documented procedure to ensure that those wishing to take advantage of the 9.5 language are afforded that opportunity. If you have any questions first direct them to your Union Steward, if further assistance is required do not hesitate to contact me at the Union Hall.

    Fraternally,

    David Licht, Business Agent
